Last week I reflected on my year of reading. The titles, the genres, the authors. Around March last year, I had to take the reality of my “COVID mindset” and my inability to focus into consideration and set a milestone much lower than I usually do at 50 books. As an English teacher and book blogger, this felt like a failure. This year, however, I am confident I can air higher than 50 soooooo I’m thinking 60?
So, what have I learned about myself as a reader?
- I read more non-fiction (yay one of the goals I DID meet)
- General fiction made up the bulk of my titles (mostly mystery and fantasy)
- I included graphic novels.
- A handful of audiobooks made my list (mostly non-fiction)
fiction- Mexican Gothic (review to come) by Silvia Moreno Garcia
non-fiction- The Heart and Other Monsters by Rose Anderson
audible- Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow
YA- Legendborn by Tracy Deonon
Graphic novel: Long Way Down based on the novel by Jason Reynolds artist Danica Novgorodoff
Fantasy: The Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo(review to come)
Reading goals for 2021
- 60 titles
- Increase Science fiction and poetry.
