Every year when December rolls around, I explode like a festive bomb. I adore Christmas and everything that comes with it. The music, the jumpers, my candy cane earrings (yes I am wearing them as I write this) and of course the films.

Having now been in the midst of Coronavirus tinged times for over 6 months and with an impending potential second wave on its way, I have been reflecting on how I have truly been through these crazy times.

As many of you know, I am a reading addict. I absolutely devour books and often have a few on the go at once. It's absolute escapism for me and relaxes me no matter what time of day. I don't even have to be on holiday! I am absolute advocate of a printed book and have always been surrounded by books. All my family are readers but none of us seem to have very similar tastes in our literature!
So far this year I have read some wonderful books, along with a hefty amount of childrens' books. I like to read one childrens' series a year, I've done Malory Towers, Harry Potter and 2020 is the turn of The Famous Five. Through audiobooks, VHS and the books themselves I think I probably know all the stories but I want to read all the books.
So here goes, my 2020 list of books (so far...)
