Hello, pornies! I hope you are having a great week and want to read a little. I had a HARD time figuring out which were my favorite books from last year. I was so tempted to include more than only nine books, to create special mention, and so on, just to include the ones in the previous list. However I wanted to follow my own rules and be fair, so after so much thinking, here are my favorite books of 2020 (and make sure to read the previous list for more great readings!) Just like before, this one is by alphabetical order to avoid any favoritism
