2020 Reading List (+ 2019 Book Review)

Hello friends and followers! It's still the festive period, so I figure I'm alright to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 2019 was a bit of a whirlwind for me. For those of you following my Spoonie Sagas, you'll know that I've spent quite a while in bed, due to my chronic illness. As such, I've read a few books! Here are a few of my favourites from the year and my planned reading list for 2020... Enjoy!

2019 Favourites // Book Review

Off: Your Digital Detox for a Better Life - Tanya Goodwin

Loved reading this short, mini-book. It's full of handy tips to slowly detox from the pull of technology. If one of your resolutions is to spend less time staring at screens, this is a book worth reading!

Free to Be Me - Dom&Ink

Okay, not strictly a book, this one is a guided journal, but it's on my nightstand and I did buy it in a bookshop, so I figure it counts! It's an amazing safe space for LGBTQ+ folks like me to express themselves in the pages, full of anecdotes and motivational quotes (hey I rhymed). Pick yourself up a copy, whether you're gay, bi, or a great, straight ally (okay enough with the rhyming thing, I get it).

The Percy Jackson Series - Rick Riordan

I read a couple of these books as a young teen but never finished the series because I got bogged-down with GCSEs. I am so glad I revisited them. I've always loved books that allow you to expand the world, like picking a house in Harry Potter, or a faction in Divergent. Riordan's series allows you to imagine who your godly parent might be! Personally, I think I'm a child of Apollo. Geek out with me on social media if you please.

Those are my favourites from the year past. And now...
