Hello Hello!

I thought it would be fun and an easy way to keep track of all the books I acquire in 2020 by making a list, month by month and adding a ✔️when I’ve read the book or a ❌ if I DNFed it. Keep reading to find out all the books I’ve purchased, been gifted or been sent this year! And I hope you find some books that you may want to acquire too. Tell me about the books you’ve recently acquired as well!

That’s all for now, I hope you enjoy, see you soon.

  1. His Dark Material and Fantastic Beasts are sooo good!!! I also want to read Circe in the future, It sounds amazing!! Brilliant haul, so many great books and authors on there!! 😀 <3

    1. I can’t wait to read them all too !!! Thank you! I can’t wait to finally get to all of them 💕🥳

    1. Thank you! I acquired most of them for my birthday and then got some for my university courses and then the rest somehow jumped into my carts and into my hands and my card somehow paid for them 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🙈🤣

    1. Thank you! Im really looking forward to reading and ticking them off the list! I think it will be a great way to not forget about the books I buy this year and actually read them at some point 🤣🙈

  2. This looks like a fantastic haul, I’d definitely recommend the Maze Runner books and His Dark Materials. I’ve read the first two HDM and cannot wait to read the third and Pullman’s latest instalment The Book of Dust.

    I loved We’re going on a bear hunt as a kid, now I get to read it to my little brother, and can love it all over again.

    1. Thank you so much Shona! We’re Going on A Bear Hunt is a bit of an inside joke in our family and when my mum got it for me for my birthday I cried ahah! I can’t wait to read the other books too!!! 👌
