2020 Cover to Cover Challenge

I continued on in my reading challenge group and while I had a dry spell in the middle of the year, I really appreciated this challenge! Of course, due to COVID a lot of things were postponed or cancelled (like the Olympics) but we left the list as is for reading inspiration. I managed to check off 12 categories in the challenge and I finished 32 books for the year.

Here’s my galley of the books that I finished:


  1. A book set in Japan (host of the 2020 Olympics) – Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Eleanor Coerr
  2. A book with a one word title – Furia by Yamile Saied Mendez
  3. A book written 20 years ago (in 2000)
  4. A banned book
  5. A book published in 2020 – What You Wish For by Katherine Center
  6. A book set in the 1920s
  7. A book by a woman of color – The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

  10. A book about modern technology or social media – Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyou
  11. The first book in a series – Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
  12. An easy reread – Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center
