2020 Wrap-up: Goal Check-in

As I wrap up my posts for the year 2020, I decided to look back on my goals for the past twelve months and see how much progress I made.

At the end of 2019, I posted the following image of the books I was looking forward to reading.

Here is how I did:

Number of books read in 2020: 5/10

2020 Wrap-up: Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading in 2021

I have yet to decide if I will have a more structured approach to my TBR this year, but because I did well (unintentionally) with the books I included on my list for 2020, I decided to go ahead and post one for 2021.

Here are the books I’m interested in reading over the next twelve months.

Waiting for Summer’s Return (Heart of the Prairie, 1) by Kim Vogel Sawyer
A Winter’s Tale: The Wreck of the Florizel by Cassie Brown
A Royal Pain (Her Royal Spyness 2) by Rhys Bowen
Trouble and Strife by Johanne Levesque
Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center
The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom

2020 Wrap-up: Cover Love

Although some of these books weren’t necessarily my top books that I read in 2020 but they did make it to one of my favourites posts due in part to their awesome covers.

I thought this was a good depiction of the main character Daisy Jones.

This cover screams autumn. And what a beautiful view.

The cover photo for this book shows women fighting fires after the attack on Pearl Harbor. It is a perfect image to introduce a book about courageous women.


What better way to represent Nashville and country music than with an image of a rhinestone cowboy boot?


I love a book set in a ship and this cover was done beautifully.

Which of these covers do you like the most? Do you have a favourite cover from the books you read in 2020? Let me know in the comments.
