My favorite books of 2020

This tumultuous year, I have found refuge and inspiration in books. (No surprise there.) So far, according to Goodreads, where I keep track of my reading and occasionally write reviews, I’ve read 36 books (perhaps more; back in the spring I was not being as, shall we say, thorough in my self-reporting).

Over the year a few favorites have emerged, and I thought it might be fun to share those published in 2019/2020, because those authors have had an especially challenging time getting the word out about their amazing work.

So let’s go! Click the links below to read my reviews–I’ll keep updating this page over the next few weeks. If you’re intrigued, remember to shop from your local independent bookstore or (an online consortium of independent bookstores) to support authors, publishers, and bookstores!
