As the title says.
I read 75 of my 80 book goodreads goal this year. None of them were very long, so I managed to get in that many despite having several month long reading slumps (it also helps that I started off the year pre-quarantine depression by reading 12 books in January, audiobooks mostly.)
What about you guys? What was your favorite book you read this year? Which one are you the most proud you finished?
My favorite book I read this year is a toss up between In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado and The Real Lolita by Sarah Weinman. Ironically those are both heart wrenching and gut wrenching non-fiction books, but they were both five star reads. I'll add in that my favorite fiction book I read this year was The Merciless by Danielle Vega, which is also gut wrenching but is also YA horror, so not as gut wrenching as the non-fiction books. My proudest book achievement this year was The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux, which was very dense and boring in parts but also a book I've always wanted to read and a classic of gothic literature that not many people actually have read, so I secretly feel like one of a chosen few who would pick it up in 2020 and therefore *very smart*
Tell me about your reading year below! If you didn't read any books in 2020, I don't blame you, and it's a new year, so you can always make up for it starting today!
*Also, plz no smartass comments about how the prospect of people reading books in the 21st century is comedic, it'll make me sad
