Oh 2020 was a year, wasn’t it? I read less (15 books less than my year with the least since I’ve been keeping track). I read more adult books, and a LOT more YA. I listened to a lot of Audio books because that’s what I could focus on. Even so, I read some pretty good books this year.
By the numbers:
Middle Grade Fiction: 11
YA Fiction: 36
Graphic Novels: 24
Adult Fiction: 21
Grand Total: 118
Number of those that were speculative fiction books, not counting graphic novels: 34
Number of those that were by POC: 48 (I was aiming for half, but ended with 41%)
Number of those that were audio books: 22
Number of those that were rereads: 15
And for the bests?
