MY READS 2020

2020 obviously gave all of us more time to read books (ha!). This year ended up being a big series-books year for me as I read or finished three or four series. I also discovered new authors whose other books I can't wait to read. I hope this list inspires you to find some new authors as well. Go and grab your next great read! Enjoy!
