25 of the Best Books I Read in 2020

2020 was a hell year, so I’m going to forgive myself for not being able to keep up with everything that came out throughout the year. I read as much as I could focus on, and am still pretty proud of my total – 102 books read, and over 20,000 pages!

I’m hoping to read even more in 2021, but even if I don’t, that’s okay! Reading is supposed to be fun, so I’m being lenient with myself on my expectations this year. 😉

Of the 102 books I read last year, I narrowed down 25 of them as my ‘favorites’ – that’s not to say the others weren’t great, but for the sake of keeping this list short and saving myself lots of time (haha), we’re sticking with a Top 25!

These are in the order of me reading them – so the first books are ones I read earlier in the year, while the last few are ones I read toward the end. This made it easy for me, since organizing them by any other means would be too hard – they’re all incredible!
