Every book I read in 2020

Needless to say, this year has been a whirlwind for everyone and something no one will ever want to live through again. But if there's one good thing that happened this year is that I read as I'd never before. My best reading year so far in my life had been last year, at 40 books. But in 2020 I read a whopping amount of 79 and I'm BUZZING.

So I thought I'd round them all up in a big ol' post and tell you my rating. I've separated them by month and, if you want more in-depth thoughts about any of them, you can go check my recent reads, linked on each title (I've also linked any individual review I've made). And if you're only interested in my favourite ones, don't fret, my very-hard-to-pick top 10 is coming tomorrow. So let's stop rambling and get on with the books!

Love,
