End of Year Wrap Up | 2020

Welcome to my End of Year Wrap up for 2020. I think that this was a tough year for pretty much everyone but I for one took solace in my books this year. Because of that it was my most successful reading year yet at 65 books!

Throughout April I was in a terrible reading slump so it was a relief for me when we got to May and I finally got that reading mojo back. We all know it is frustrating to know that you love reading but just not feeling like reading. That imposter syndrome starts to creep in. Luckily, I am happy to say that I kicked it in the pants. Lets take a look back at May.
