My Year in Books 2020!

This meme has been popping up a lot in the last few days. I spotted this meme first on Annabel’s blog and since then I’ve enjoyed reading it on Juliana, Laura, Karen and Lisa‘s blogs and I thought it would be fun to do!

At the end of a long day I need The Trip to Echo Springs (Olivia Laing)
