Best Books Read in 2020

I read more this year, I'm really happy with what I read, at 658. I am a little annoyed at this post, because I realized that I've done  something silly-that number is books read in 2020. But in years previous, I did all the books that were reviewed in that year. It's too much work to go back and add those few books that I read at the end of 2019 to 2019's post, so I'm just going to make note of them at the bottom, so next year, it'll only be the books that I read in 2021! 

I read books from January to December, and of those, were the ones that I absolutely loved, be it writing, thinking about it after, how much I'm anticipating any sequels or other books by the author, or the emotions it evoked, like "I hate that villain, they're so bad! HATEHATEHATE!!!! Yep.

So here's those books in alphabetical order so there's no strangeness among them!
