I read 33 books in my 33rd year and the numerology-loving bibliophile I am is pretty stoked about that!
2020 will go down as the year I read the most 1-star books as I read SIX 1-star books last year. To make matters worse, four of them were technically back-to-back as I read The Postmistress followed by I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You as book one and two of the year!! What a poor AF start to my reading challenge aki. Then in October I read We Were The Mulvaneys followed by Straight Up and Dirty: A Memoir and the former is THE MOST BORING BOOK I HAVE EVER READ IN MY LIFE! The other 1-star reads were Good in Bed (my fourth book of the year… poor poor poor start aki) and Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously (HAAATED!!! that one).
That explains why my average rating for the year is 2.8 whereas in previous years it has always been 3+. I also read just two 5-star books last year – We Should All Be Feminists and Night Road – which also contributed to my low 2020 rating.
