Mid Year Wrap 2020

Happy first day of the second half of the year! Crazy to think that the year is already half done.

Over the last day or two I have been enjoying reading others’ wrap up and goal review posts and have been inspired to write my own.

Beginning with the Goodreads Reading Challenge. I have read 50/75 books this year so far; meaning I can adopt a more relaxed pace for the second half of the year. Lucky…. since I’ve fallen into a massive reading slump I have no idea how to get out of. Suggestions anyone???

Favourite books (5 ★ reads):

  • A Good Neighborhood by Anne Therese Fowler
  • Regretting You by Colleen Hoover
  • The Switch by Beth O’Leary
  • If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane
  • The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez
  • Truth or Beard by Penny Reid

Honourable mentions (or books I loved almost as much as my favourites):

  • Pretending by Holly Bourne
  • Beach Read by Emily Henry
  • The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa
  • It Sounded Better In My Head by Nina Kenwood
  • The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver
  • The Lonely Fajita by Abigail Mann

Quick stats:

  • Pages read: 17,546
  • Most read genre: Contemporary/Romance
  • Most read format: Audiobook
  • ARCs read: 13

Goals for the rest of 2020:

  • Complete my Goodreads Reading Challenge
  • Simplify my blogging process and learn how to schedule posts
  • Put less pressure on myself to keep up with other bloggers
  • Continue to enjoy reading and sharing books in this amazing bookish community.

  1. I think reading slumps just take time to get out of. Reading light hearted books or picking up an old favourite even an old fav from childhood might help? 💚💙💜

      1. Sometimes the pressure of blogging, reviewing etc can take our joy away. I have definitely experienced that in the past..the pressure to write a review on time etc etc. But ultimately I know for me reviewing and blogging gives me more happy days than otherwise. It’s just something that ebbs and flows isn’t it. I hope you’ll find your reading mojo again soon 🧡💛
