Well, yeah. Maybe I won't reference the car-crash of this year as this is my last post of 2020. And seeing as I didn't do this type of post last year (I went on a mad reading/blog tour sprint last year, didn't I?), I'm not sure what the rules are for these types of posts. Plus, with most of us feeling a bit burnt out due to 2020 (oh, this year was rough on us, wasn't it?), a nice few weeks off will be wonderful.
Now, before I go, I'm going to put some music videos up as, while books and audiobooks did save me this year (and I had mini-reading/blogging burnout throughout the year because of this), music and podcasts were essential to me (as was binge-watching things on Netflix, BBC iPlayer, SkyQ and Disney+).
But before I do, I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you to all you wonderful authors and illustrators for creating wonderful stories. Thank you to all the publishers for releasing them to the world in these trying times. Thank you to all the publicists who pushed books onto us. Thank you to all of the booksellers who kept selling books, even though stores closed and some for their jobs under threat. To all the book bloggers/Booktubers/bookstagrammer/Tik-Tokers/podcasters/etc for keeping promoting and loving stories.
Now, to my family, friends and my Other Half, just thank you.
Now, before I go, I want to you wish you all a lovely and safe holiday (whether that be Christmas, Hanukkah, Pancha Ganapati, Yule or other holidays that I need to do more research into) and I will see you sometime in January 2021!
