I loved 98% of the books I read this year. There were a couple that were an absolute waste of my time (yes, they’re included on the list)… I am embarrassed to have even read them or wasted my time on them. And that is in no way me being disrespectful to the authors, it’s just my opinion. The above books brought characters into my life that made me think, cry, yell, laugh, and feel every other emotion possible. There are several books on the list that absolutely changed my life and are more than deserving of their own reviews (which I hope to get to soon).


Have you read any of the books above? What did you think of them?

Do y’all have any book recommendations that I should add to my reading list for 2020?!
