Top 10 Books of 2020

top 10 books of 2020

Who wants another Top 10 list of 2020? No one? Cool, I made one for all the best books I read this year anyway!

If my 100 One-Line Book Reviews post was too long for you (honestly, it was too long for me too, so I don’t blame you) maybe this one will be more enjoyable. I’ll keep it short and sweet, but if you’re looking for some book recommendations for 2021, these are, in my opinion, a good place to start—especially of you like horror, speculative fiction, and LGBTQ characters.

2020 Reading Challenge: 100 One-Line Book Reviews

100 One-Line Book Reviews

Now that 2020 is nearly over (!!!!!!!!) it’s time for my annual reading wrap-up! I’ve always challenged myself to write one-line reviews* of books I’ve read throughout the year, and am continuing the tradition this year as well.

I had originally set myself a goal to read 52 books this year, but thanks to lockdown, I hit that pretty early. Then, I upped my reading goal to 100 books, and have since surpassed that as well. However, for the sake of my sanity (or at least what’s left of it), instead of writing a one-line review for every book I’ve read this year, I’m sticking to the first 100.

If you’re interested in seeing every single book I’ve read in 2020, feel free to check out my Goodreads. Otherwise, feast your eyes on the following 100 one-line book reviews.

And remember, I am writing most of these reviews months after finishing the books, so they aren’t necessarily good, but they are fun! (Get ready for the run-on sentences!)

*These reviews are more like the first thought that pops into my head when I think back to each book.

Top 5 Books to Read if You Love Reality TV

Top 5 Books if You Like Reality TV

My attention span for reading is usually pretty great. Typically, I’m able to sit and read without interruption for hours on end. But lately, given all this *gestures at the dark void that has become our planet* my ability to read has dwindled. I’ve found myself grabbing shorter books and lots of graphic novels, and when I really can’t focus, I put on reality TV shows.

Netflix’s timing has been perfect, in a way. What better time has there ever been to binge-watch reality shows? I’ve made my way through Love is Blind, recently finished Too Hot To Handle, and am eagerly looking for a new show to fill my time.

One of my friends suggested I write a post about these shows, but instead, in true book nerd fashion, I’ve put together a list of five books to read if you love reality TV.

2019 Reading Challenge

2019 Reading Challenge

It’s the first day of 2019, and the first thing I did when I got out of bed this morning was grab a new book to start reading. This isn’t all that different from how I start most days, but once I read a couple chapters, I realized that I hadn’t set any reading goals for 2019 yet. So, here we go!

Summer Reading List

Summer Reading 2018

July is finally here, which means it’s time to kick off my summer reading! I know it’s felt like summer for a few weeks already, but to me, summer will always be July and August; it’s one of those things from being a student that I just can’t shake. And making summer reading lists has always been something I’ve loved doing.
