Books of 2020

Here are all the books I read this year. My main reading goal for this year is to focus on my Read the World Project as I have over 100 books to read (and review) in less than two years if I want to meet my self-imposed goal. You can find out more about what I’m reading on my Twitter and Goodreads.
