I very rarely make New Year’s resolutions, but at the start of 2020, I committed to something: I would finish the books I started. While many of my friends are unable to put down a book they’ve begun, I’ve increasingly become the kind of reader who reads 15, 20, 30 percent of a book, and then puts it down if it’s not keeping my attention. 

This year, I decided to be more intentional about the books I chose, only beginning books I knew were likely to appeal to me the whole way through. That resulted in me reading 79 books that, to be honest, I mostly adored. But if I pause, several standouts do come to mind. Hannah Reynolds is a BookBub editor and romance novelist.
