I am so grateful to be writing this yearly book round-up, and you know why? Because it means that it is a new year and that we are starting fresh. While I know that when 2021 began, the pandemic didn’t magically disappear it still was a good feeling to say goodbye to the year that was 2020. I am so excited about everything this year holds and connecting with all of you even more! 

2020 book roundup

If you are new here, you can see my past yearly book roundups for 2019 and 2018. I love to look back on these anytime I need to suggest books to friends and family. If you are looking to read more this year, I cannot recommend doing what I did. In 2018 I challenged myself to read something every single day. It didn’t have to be more than a sentence but I committed to opening a book and reading something.. Soon, I was flying through books and loving my renewed reading habit. In the past, I had tried reading one book a week or one chapter a day and it just didn’t work for me. I had to start this new habit even smaller. Try this if you want to make reading a priority in 2021. In 2020 I read a total of 48 books and I am sharing all of them with you below.

I'm Bailey, your new social media bestie.

Instead of doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing, I got intentional. I started asking “what if” all the time and I stopped putting so much pressure on myself to do things at the perfect time or the right way. Instead I took a little leap here and another there to create a life I love.
