Books I Read in 2020

2020 was both my best and worst year yet for reading! I read more books than I ever have before, but most books were of a lesser quality in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I still read some awe-inspiring books, but I was mainly reading for escape, so while a lot of stories were entertaining, they didn’t have that 5-star pow I usually expect. I made a heavily curated 2021 TBR list (look out for that next week), so I’m hoping to read some more amazing books next year.
