2020 Book Challenge Results

Happy New Year! Things have been a little quiet over here on the blog as I settle into the podcasting world, but as part of my annual tradition, I wanted to share what I’ve been reading lately. Books have always played a major role in my life and have inspired my writing over the years, and 2020 was another great year for that.

Although I didn’t read quite as much as I did in 2019, I still made time for reading amidst the other quarantine activities of 2020. I continued to explore both fiction and nonfiction, and even a few ebooks and audiobooks along the way! I also rediscovered a few old favorites from the young adult section (hello, Libba Bray!) and felt all the feels I did when I was a teenager. Below is my list of books read in 2020. I marked my favorites with a * in case you’re looking for reading inspiration in 2021!
