The End of the Year Book Tag: 2020 Edition

I cannot be the only one excited that the end of this year is fucking nigh, right? From a global pandemic to natural disasters to civil unrest and police brutality, this year’s been difficult to say the least. I’m basically ready to kick 2020 to the curb, light it on fire, and arise from its ashes reborn tomorrow.

End of the Year 2018 End of the Year 2019

Due to my unannounced and unexpected hiatus (again), I haven’t been tagged this year for the End of the Year Book Tag by anyone…but I do what I want!
