Well, it’s finally over, so let’s take a look back at what I read in 2020.

My grad school class on YA literature asks us to read an “award winning YA book from 2017, 18 or 19” and I knew I wanted to read The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
After being told to read this book by just about everyone I mention it to, I finally sat down and cranked out a reading of Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
