Y’all, I really thought this would be an impossible task! I didn’t think I’d be able to narrow down my favorites to a top 20, let alone a top 10. I had quite a few 5 star reads this year. Well, my memory has seriously helped with the narrowing down process! How? Well, after about 200 books read, a lot of them start running together, and I have trouble remembering a lot of them. I’m sure if I went back and read my review it would all come back to me, but there were some clear stand outs this year that were impossible to forget.
Have you ever tried a new author, LOVED their book, but just never picked up another one? I. Am. Guilty.
This is a list of authors that I’ve only read one or two books from. Each of these books I gave 4.5 – 5 stars to, but I haven’t read more yet. So, I’ve made this list of authors that I’m determined to read more from in 2020! The books shown are the one(s) I’ve read and loved.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! Today’s Top Ten topic is Favorite Books Released In the Last Ten Years.
Let me start by saying this just doesn’t seem fair!! This has got to be one of the absolute hardest things to do!! How can I choose?? Just the idea was daunting, let alone the actual process! But, I managed. Some of these aren’t necessarily my favorite that year, but I just couldn’t decide so I picked one that would be tied for the position.

I’m a little behind on writing my reviews. Hopefully I’ll start getting them knocked out. Of all the reviews I have to write, though, this is the one that I just really need to share with y’all!! This book just hasn’t let me go. RIVER hasn’t let me go!!
