2019: A Bookish Success!

Looking back,

I think of the past year as a massive success when it comes to reading. After 3 years, it was in 2019 that I could meet my Goodreads Reading challenge. I finished reading 93 books last year; a record I never dreamt to make. I also started my Youtube channel ‘BadBookthief‘ where I review books and plan to do videos about my travels and poetry soon.

Here’s the link to it. Do visit and hit ‘subscribe’ so you never miss a post for me. You can also tell me what kind of content you would like to see up on the channel.

Talking of books, a lot of books I read this year simply astonished me for their sheer richness and the depth of ideas that exploded in my head for their brilliance leaving me gasping for breath.

Some of these books I picked up on an impulse and I am happy I did so. And then there were some I wish had left me alone. This blog post is a brief view of my bookish journey in 2019. This link will help you check out my books and the reviews in peace.

Let me now take you through my year in books, and I have Goodreads to thank, for doing the background work for me!

Let’s begin, shall we?

Here’s a summary.

Rebecca is one book I’ve managed to read every year and it feels just right to end the year with it.

That’s that!

For 2020, I hope to manage more awesome books and I would love to have book recommendations from you. Share your favorite titles in comment section below and why you liked them. I might pick it up and then we can together discuss it. What say? Also do tell how many books did you read in 2019 and what plans for 2020 reading challenge.

I shall take leave now.

Wishing you a very happy new year. May 2020 bring you more than you dream of!

Happy reading till we meet next.

Until then, carpe diem! 🙂
