2020 Reading Goals & Challenges 📚 Wrap Up

Today I’ll be talking about my 2020 goals/challenges & how I went. To be honest I lost focus on these challenges completely after I fell into a reading slump in March/April. After that I was simply focusing on reading what I felt like reading to try and kill the slump! So, let’s jump in.

20 Books to Read in 2020

This was a fail…. I read 4 out of the 20 books that I planned to.

Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reingten
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs
The Hand on the Wall by Maureen Johnson

Didn’t Read:
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kaung

Big Book Reading Challenge

This one was a bit of a fail. My goal was to read 1 book from each of the following categories:
801 – 900
901 – 1000
1001+
I ended up reading 1 book between 801 – 900 and that was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which I reread twice in 2020. Which didn’t really fulfil the challenge as it was a reread & an audiobook. But oh well.
