The Best Books of 2020 (According to Cat)

While favorite books are certainly an objective thing to discuss, I wanted to take a moment to list out my favorite reads from 2020. Naturally, because I’m horrible at actually picking my favorites, I settled for picking one (or three) for the genres I read the most.

I am so lucky to have had a chance to read all of these amazing books this year, and am sincerely looking forward to seeing what 2021 brings (in the literary world, at least – the jury is still out on everything else!).

Without further ado, here’s my list! Links to Goodreads and my reviews are all included. Enjoy!
