So since the new year has started I thought it would be a good time to look back at my 2020 TBR and my reading goals!
So let’s start with my 2020 TBR:
- The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan – Read it, and also read it’s sequel!
- Elantris by Brandon Sanderson – Read it, and loved it!
- The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin – Haven’t read this.. (Spoiler alert, it is also on this year’s TBR haah)
- Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky – Haven’t read it.. But I have gotten an other book by him, so I will soon know if I like his work! (hopefully haha)
- Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames – Read it and loved it, I hope to read the sequel soon!
- The Secret History by Donna Tart – Didn’t read, and another one that is on this year’s TBR haha, I just still really want to read it!
- The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch – Didn’t read, but still want to!
- An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – Read and loved the whole series!
- Circe by Madeline Miller – Didn’t read, but also I have lost my interest in this one!
- The City of Brass by SA Chakraborty – Read and absolutely loved the whole trilogy!
- The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath – I enjoyed this one so much more then I had expected!
Read: 6/11; on 2021 TBR: 2/11; No longer interested: 1/11.
I would say I did pretty well!
And now let’s look at the reading goals I set at the start of the year!
- Read 200 books – Surpassed this by reading 270 books!
- Read 12 classics – Didn’t do this, read 8/12!
- Resd 5 non-fiction – Did this! Read exactly 5! But honestly I only managed this because I did my GoodReads Reading challenge. I hope to do better next year haha!
- Finish 10 series (that I started before 2020) – Okay this was had to count but I think I finished 15 series that I started before 2020! More if I counted series that I started and finished this year 🙂
- Read 30 2020 releases – Surpassed this by A LOT! I managed to read 98 2020 releases!
- Read 30 ‘backlist’ books (pre-2017) – Definitely passed this one as well! If I counted correctly I read 51 books released before 2017 (that I did not count as a classic!)
Okay I did really well! Obviously I did not know what to expect from this reading year at the start of 2020 haha!
