I will never put out a “best” book list, because I don’t believe there is such a thing. Reading is about personal preference; what I enjoy reading may not be what you enjoy, and that’s totally fine. My favorite reads have always been ones with which I connect emotionally. Sometimes, I’m draw to the relationships between characters. Other times, I learn something new and find my perspective broadened. And sometimes I’m drawn into a story that transports me to another world for a little while and I feel like I’ve escaped my ordinary life.
The 12 books on this list are my personal favorites from 2020. I chose not to describe why I loved each one because some aspects of my reading journey are my own, but I wanted to share the titles with you.
