My 71 Books of 2020

I set a new personal reading record this year (by one book!). Finishing my Master’s degree this year definitely made it easier for my own reading. Hopefully one of your goals is to read intentionally this year, and if so, this list will provide you with a number of options to consider.

Here are the books I read since January of 2020 with my rating for them (5 being the best) along with a brief review. Any book without a number rating has been given to me by the author or publisher.

My 61 Books of 2018

This was a great year of reading! Some of my new favorites were Deep Work, Strength to Love, The Cross and the Lynching Tree, and Her Gates Will Never be Shut. I’ve been rereading books I love more this year as well. I think that’s something I’ll continue to do more of as I realize some books have so much more to offer upon additional readthroughs.
