As we say hello to 2021 and goodbye (and good riddance) to 2020, I’ve been reflecting a lot on my favorite books of the year. Normally I would share a top 10, but since I read over 200 books last year and “20 in 2020” has a nice ring to it, I decided to share my top 10% instead!

Honorable Mention:

I read so many fantastic books this year! It was a challenge to narrow it down to just 20, and as you can see I sometimes cheated by combining series, and I couldn’t resist shouting out some other great books I thoroughly enjoyed this year! Here’s hoping 2021 takes me on another amazing reading journey!
