"The best book I read in 2020 is my all-time favorite, 'Wintersong' by S. Jae Jones. I was obsessed with her retake on the labyrinth. I preferred her version better to speak truth. Her elegant writing makes her beautiful, fantastical world come to life. It's the kind of book I found myself lost in for hours, enthralled by the mystery and intrigued by the romance. I honestly couldn't put it down and once I did, I found myself picking it up again later." - Brittany

"'I Will Judge You By Your Book Shelf' is witty and fun and the perfect light read for 2020! Plus, I will judge you by your book shelf!" - Nikki
