Best Books of 2020

 My family and I track our reading on my Goodreads account. Our goal for the year was 400 books. Thanks to the pandemic and long hours in quarantine, we've met and exceeded our goal. We're currently at 765 books and it's possible that we'll get to 800 by the end of the year.

Here are my top books of the year in no particular order. Note that these books weren't necessarily published in 2020.

The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd 

Hill Women by Cassie Chambers

Circe by Madeline Miller

The Highwayman by Kerrigan Byrne

Middle-grade fiction:
