My “have read” 2020 book list

I love books. Here I’m listing the books I’ve read this year. I hope you find a title here that interests you. NOTE: if there are any you’d like to purchase please go to my page BUY THE BOOK! to see if it is listed there. You can follow direct links, making it easier for you.
In blue I’ve  indicated which books are reviewed here on my blog. Also, any book I have marked *(ARC)* is an Advanced Reading Copy I was given in exchange for my free and honest review.
Purple is to indicate the books I read listened to on Audible so that I can do other things at the same time as “reading.”(Refer to Most of those are novels.
In green are other books I’ve read that are usually middle grade (not picture books, but may be story books with pictures) and a few novels.
My reading interests vary widely. If you’re interested in any titles on this list or are encouraged to read more, do let me know! If you have suggestions of what would look good in my reading stash I’d love to hear about it so I can add it to my private to-be-read list.
:) Happy year of Reading!
