January 2020 Wrap-up and Book Haul

I can’t believe that we only have 11 months left for the new year. Time surely flies when you are having a good time.

My 2020 reading year is doing quite well. I finally managed to find the jive in reading and working. I think it also helps that I worked from home 4 times a week and I only go to the office once a week. I have been doing a lot of reading with the help of audiobook and it is life changing.

With that being said I read a total of 8 books this month. Which is surprising! I have never read that much in a month and I am excited to share with you the books that I have read. So without further ado, let’s dive into the books!

Top 5 Books of 2019

I’m finally closing my year of reading with a quick recap of my whole reading year before diving into my top 5 books. Unlike other readers, I feel like the amount of reading that I make would not suffice for a top 10 books of the year so I am narrowing it down to 5. I would probably do a top 10 if I managed to read more than 100 books in a year.

Okay I will quit blabbing and let’s get into the recap. (Thanks to Goodreads!)

reading

56 books and 17,393 pages. An achievement if you asked me.

2019 is a year of series for me. I managed to finish a lot of series this year and I feel so proud, even my bookshelves are proud of me. So I decided that this top 5 books will only consist of 1 book per series that I have finished, if ever they make it to my top 5 books.

So without further ado, here is my TOP 5 BOOKS of 2019!

Reading Rush Wrap-Up

Hi friends! I know that The Reading Rush is over for more than a week now. But being the lazy person that I was, I am only wrapping it up now. I can say that I am successful with this readathon even though I haven’t manage to finish all 7 books in a week. I might have done that if I have chosen shorter books but where’s the fun in that?

Anyways, here is a quick overview of how my Reading Rush went.

Stat

If I haven’t slacked off on day 4 and 5 I might have read more books than just 5. Also I have managed to accomplished a couple of the challenges. I really tried very hard for this readathon because I like the badges! So here are all the badges that I have acquired in this year’s Reading Rush.

I think it’s about time for the wrap-up! I haven’t posted my full reviews for all the books that I have read but it’s coming. So with that being said, let’s proceed with the wrap-up.

Best of 2018

Another year means another reading year and more books to be added on our TBR pile. I have been doing well with my reading on the first half of the year until I fall into the biggest slump of my life. Even so, I managed to complete my reading challenge in Goodreads.

I read a total of 27 books. Out of 27, I will narrow down my best of 2018 into 5 books. It is because most of the books that I have read this year are series or part of a series. So I will only choose one book if I love that series.

But before anything else, here are the books that I have read this year!

 

2018 - 12018 - 2

Better Late Than Never: Reading Wrap-Up (January to March)

Hey guys! You’re definitely reading it right. I’m doing my January to March wrap-up just now. I wanted to do an April wrap-up because I read a lot of books last April but I’ll just do a quick wrap-up for the past three months.

January to March is not a good reading month for me. I only completed 4 books in a span of three months. And that, my friends, is the reason why I haven’t posted any wrap-up lately.

One out of all the four books that I finished in the first quarter of the year, I started way back in December. But I’m not that disappointed with myself because I decided to power-through The Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes Volume 1. I finally finished it! Took me two years to finally finish the whole book instead of reading one short story at a time.

Anyway, without further ado, here are all the books that I finished reading in January, February and March:
