Favorite Books of 2020

Despite a global pandemic I somehow still managed to read some great books – here are some of my favorites reads in 2020 out of the 79 I got to this year.

Let’s start off with some newer releases…

and ya’ll… did you know about these things called Classics? They are books that many people have loved for a long long time. If you start off by avoiding the dead white men they become much more palatable than your high school English teacher might have made them out to be.

…and these enchanting middle-grade/young adult books soothed my mind with nostalgia and delighted my imagination.

and a few more favorites in the arts…

  • Royal Swedish Ballet performing Alexander Ekman’s work on Marquee.TV
  • The Prom on Netflix: I love how they chose to adapt the staged show to film.
  • Hamilton on Disney+
  • Broadway Bounty Hunter, Original Cast Recording
  • Weekly showings from the Doug Varone and Dancers archives earlier this year
  • Over The Garden Wall on Hulu: I will watch this every Autumn till the end of time now.
  • Dior Cruise 2021 fashion show: no really, it is a b e a u t i f u l performance.
  • The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron: yes this is another book but you can READ the book or you can DO the book and I did the later with a small group of inspired humans and got so much out of it.

What were your favorite reads of the year?
