Yearly Wrap-Up: 2020

I think we can all say that 2020 was a very strange and eventful year, even with us quarantining for a vast majority of it. I started grad school for library science this year, though I actually withdrew from my grad school program a few months later (because it was focusing on school librarianship, and I want to pursue public librarianship). I recently started a job as a library page at a branch of our local public library, and I am really enjoying it! We also moved unexpectedly this year! We moved back to Texas, which is where I grew up, so that we could be closer to my family. My daughter started in-person pre-school this year. It has been a hard year for everyone, but it has still had some great moments for me! And, I read WAY more books than I anticipated!!

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

color books on grey wooden backgroundI have seen a ton of Booktube channels doing the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag, and it made me want to give it a go!

I realize we are a bit past “mid-year” by now, but I was kind of on an unofficial hiatus when “mid-year” hit, so I am doing it now! This seemed like such a fun way to talk about the books I have read so far this year, especially since there were a few months where I didn’t post anything here.

Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2020

Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve done a monthly wrap-up! This month I have read a grand total of 13 books! I was not expecting to finish so many. I think it is largely because it is so cold outside and I don’t want to go do anything 😂

I’m going to try to do things slightly differently this year. I am going to keep y’all updated on how my various book challenges are going in each of my monthly wrap-ups. 

Let’s get into it!

Book Review: Tweet Cute

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord ~ 368 pages ~ published 1/21/2020 by Wednesday Books

 

Goodreads Synopsis:

Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.

Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.

All’s fair in love and cheese ― that is, until Pepper and Jack’s spat turns into a viral Twitter war. Little do they know, while they’re publicly duking it out with snarky memes and retweet battles, they’re also falling for each other in real life ― on an anonymous chat app Jack built.
