My Year In Books

My Year in Books

2020 felt longer than it actually was. I’m both surprised and unphased by my Goodreads statistics. I only read 23 books. But I also finished writing one, so I guess that evens out. I felt the pressure to read as the pandemic grew and lockdown occurred. But about two months in, inside my house, I found that reading wasn’t joyous anymore.

I wish for this year to be different.

I hope everyone stays safe and healthy, but also that no book nerd burns out. We’ll be seeing all sorts of reading challenges and pledges this month and I just want everyone to remember that even if all you do is buy a book because it looks pretty, or read one chapter and put it down, that’s okay.

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
