Better late than never, right?

I read 119 books in 2020, and I was able to come up with my top 10. And while I cannot definitively rank it from 1-10, I can tell you what made my top 3 for sure – the rest are a guess!

Disclaimer: just because I loved a book does not mean that you will, and I am always happy to personalize a recommendation for you if you tell me the things that you like!
