Top Ten Tuesday: 2020 Releases I’ll Be Reading in 2021

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To.” Yes, I did cry when I looked at all the books I should have read in 2020 but didn’t. This list is incomplete and only includes a tiny peek at all the 2020 books I still need to get to. Most of these are books I bought but haven’t read, so I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me and no excuse in sight. Covers are linked to Goodreads.

  1. I read The Henna Wars during 2020, mostly because my library had it, and it’s definitely a relatively light younger YA book so I would say definitely check that out when you want a pick me up (I love the MC and her parents’ relationship). I’ve heard so many good things about Grown and Black Sun, I’m just waiting for my library to get them in!
