2020 Top 10: Books

A lot of things happened in 2020 which, besides the wider mayhem, contributed to me consuming more books than usual. For one, I graduated so no more hours of coursework. Secondly, pandemic meant the libraries closed so I finally made the jump to ebooks. Thirdly, I got sick. So sick I couldn't read or do much of anything. However once I started to recover and was able to read again, I had a lot more free time.

So without further ado, on with the top 10! If you're curious about how these are ranked, it's a mixture of My rating system, my current mood, and a pinch of chance.
