2020 Reading Challenge

Back in 2018, I decided to get back in the “habit” of reading. I managed to read regularly in 2019 and read over 20 books. I set a goal of 24 (2 a month) for 2020. Despite being pretty busy on both a personal and professional level i was able to accomplish this and actually exceeded my goal by quite a bit. Here are my totals from Goodreads.

Here are some of the recent posts about the books I read this year. I wasn’t doing posts on every book, but started to back in the late summer. You can see all of the posts here.

For 2021, I am upping my target to 36 books (3 a month). I will see if I can step up to maintain that pace.

The Closers by Michael Connelly

The Closers by Michael Connelly — Latest Read

Just finished The Closers by Michael Connelly. This is Book 11 in the Harry Bosch series. It is, essentially, a series reboot that brings Bosch back into the LAPD and returns to Connelly's classic third person narrative style.
A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine

A Memory Called Empire — Latest Read

Just finished the 2020 Hugo Award winner for Best Novel, A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine. Character development, plot line, world-building were pretty well done, but fell short as a "great read."

The Silence — Latest Read

Just finished The Silence by Don DeLillo. I had read a number of articles that recommended DeLillo as a contemporary author worth reading. So when I saw this recently released novel by DeLillo, I added it to my "Want to Read" list.

Atomic Habits — Latest Read

I recently finished Atomic Habits by James Clear. I am generally not a fan of "self-help" books, but I am trying to add more "what's everyone talking about" books to my reading mix, so I gave this one a deeper look.
