In 2020 I decided to keep track of all the books I read. The moment I started, I wished I had done it my whole life. What journeys I’ve been on, through the world of books.
And then I discovered this thing called Goodreads, because apparently there were hundreds of thousands of people in the world who – long before me – thought the same thing: let’s keep track of what we’ve read.
So rather belatedly I’ve jumped on the Goodreads wagon. Here’s what I read in 2020.
Like the year I read Wolf Hall, don’t consider starting a Donna Tartt book if the end goal is volume. But goodness, the deep immersion in The Goldfinch is worth it.
I’ll read anything by David Sedaris and Elizabeth Gilbert and was delighted by both of their latest releases. (And by ‘latest’, I mean whenever I get around to reading it).
Common to all the best junior fiction, Fox 8, The Graveyard Book and The One and Only Ivan are a satisfying read for audiences of all ages. I backed these up with more books by the same authors … but that is a story for 2021 …
