Colleen | 84 comments Not-too-Serious 2020 Reading List
Duration: 2020
Let's be real - I get distracted so easily but have such high reading ambitions, so this year I'm just going to try to read whatever I can without actually setting a specific goal. (I mean, I've already borrowed 15 books from the library, and have finished zero, and three more are on request. *facepalm* [I've returned all but two of them.])

Actually, the only goal I've got is to finish the entire Lord of the Rings series, since I've been trying to read it since 2012, when my brother gave me the entire volume as an awesome birthday gift.
