2020 Book Collection

I’ve decided that this year I’m going to keep a tally of the books I’ve read here on my blog. I’ve seen people doing this on Twitter and Instagram, but I thought it might be nice to keep a more permanent log of it on here.

Last year I decided to join Goodreads and set myself the challenge to read 30 books. I just missed out on it and only did 27, so this year I’ve set myself the same challenge and hopefully I’ll do it this year instead! Every time I complete a book I’ll add it to the list here and give it a review out of 5 too.

Is there anything else you want me to add about each book that you’d like to see?

  1. The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman. — 3.5/5 Stars — Quite a good book, but not as engaging as Northern Lights. A nice bridge to the next one though, with a good cliffhanger.

  2. The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman. — 4/5 Stars — A good ending to the series, but I still didn’t find it as good as book 1. A little disappointed with the ending and the way the battle was written.

  3. The Memory Wood by Sam Lloyd. (Gifted through The Tandem Collective) — 4.5/5 Stars — Such a good book. It has several really good twists in it that I didn’t see coming. A little disappointed in the ending but it didn’t ruin the book.

  4. The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. — 5/5 Stars — A beautifully written account of Lale Sokolov’s time in Auschwitz/Birkenau concetration camp throughout the war and how he met the love of his life. I’d definitely recommend.

  1. First of all, THAT MUG! It’s SO CUTE!

    I love this idea! I’m just getting into book blogging myself, but I’d love to see what books you have planned to read (if you do!) I’m always curious what other people are reading! I’ve been loving reading monthly reading wrap-ups too. Would be really cool to see your thoughts along with the star ratings!!

    Good luck with your goal! I believe in you :)♡

    1. Thank you for your comment. I always pick my books depending on what I’m feeling like reading at the time – I find I have to be in the right mood to read certain genres. I can definitely add in my a couple of lines with the star rating. Thanks for the idea! 🙂 x

  4. I did something similar, kept my reading goal low with a few extras on my list in case I didn’t like some books or read more than I thought 🙂 I hope you manage 30 this year !

  5. This is a really nice way to keeo track of the books! I suggest adding a line or two with your thoughts on the book so you can remember more when you look back. A comment like “what a great character” or “sibling relationship goals” is enough 😊
