Happy Book Lovers Day, Bookworms, Bibliophiles, Book Nerds, Book Lovers, whatever you want to call yourself!
To honour this lovely holiday (this makes me so excited that this is a thing) I’ve elicited the help of Goodreads to make a list of all the books I read this year. My goal is 60 books and I am at 39.
I have rated each book based on our Bibliomavens rating scale. It will give a quick idea of what I thought of each book. I linked any that I’ve written reviews for (on the blog or on Goodreads) if you’re interested in my thoughts.
Check out the list below for my 2020 reading list. Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and what your thoughts were! Also, let me know if you have any recommendations for me for the rest of 2020!
