Books I Read in 2020!

2020 was a strange year – for me, it meant spending the large majority on furlough which meant I had lots of free time! I’d never kept a list of how many books I’d read in a year before so it was interesting to see how many I’d get through. Personally, I’d say 46 isn’t bad!

While this list is more for my own use, should I ever need it, I thought it might be fun to share. Any reviews will be linked (as soon as I get around to writing them) 😂
