Blogmas Day 21
Welcome to Day 21 of Blogmas 2020! This has to be the post I look forward to writing the most every year, where I share the books that made my best of shelf for the year. My regular readers will know that I don’t rarely rate a book above 4 stars and even fewer of those make this list. This year, of the 200+ books I’ve read this year, I’ve chosen 8 for this list. As a reminder of the criteria I use for this list, the book has to be published in the same year, I should have given it a rating of 4 stars or higher, with something that I felt made it stand out over the other books – and for once, yes, the books are in order this year. Without further ado, let’s check out my favourite books of 2020!Continue reading
This review is one I have been both looking forward to and dreading writing all year. With The Tower of Nero being the last book in the Percy Jackson universe, it’s hard to believe this saga has finally come to an end and I swear, I haven’t felt this upset to say goodbye to a series since I finished Harry Potter.
Anyway, I knew I wanted to post this review on a special day, and what better day than today, my second blogversary! I started blogging as a hobby with no idea of how long I would have the motivation to keep going, but two years later, I’ve only grown more invested in it, and sitting down to write these posts is the part of my day I look forward to the most.

Happy Christmas Eve, readers! I know my posts have slowed down over the past two weeks, and that was because I was away on vacation and didn’t have time to schedule out enough posts in advance to cover all of my usual posting days. Things are back to normal this week though, and the year coming to an end, I figured it would be a good time to look back at my favourite books of the year – the ones that made it on to my best of year shelf, which I tend to keep very, very limited.
