What I Read in 2020 📚
After reading 37 books in 2019, I set myself what I thought was a comfortable goal of reading 24 books in 2020. Unfortunately, I didn’t reach my goal as I usually read during my commute, and I’ve been working from home since March. I ended up reading 13 books, which is not bad considering what a year it has been:
- And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie ★★★★☆
- Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? by Caitlin Doughty ★★★☆☆
- Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates ★★★★★
- Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang ★★★★☆
- The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler ★★★☆☆
- The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming by David Wallace-Wells ★★★☆☆
- The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton ★★★☆☆
- All Systems Red by Martha Wells ★★★★☆
- The Adventure Zone: Petals to the Metal by Clint McElroy ★★★★★
- Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World by Mark Miodownik ★★★★☆
- Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke ★★★★☆
- I Will Teach You to Be Rich by Ramit Sethi ★★★☆☆
- What If? by Randall Munroe ★★★★☆
These were my highlights:
- Favorite fiction book: The Adventure Zone: Petals to the Metal by Clint McElroy
- Favorite non-fiction book: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
- Most thought-provoking book: Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke
- Least favorite book: Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? by Caitlin Doughty
