This wasn’t a banner year for reading for me either in quantity. And I didn’t read any non-fiction books that were just life changing, like I’ve done in 2018 and 2019. But I did read some really good novels. I also read some that were just good enough to pass the time. And in 2020, that was enough.
So here are the books I read and how I rated them on a 4-star scale. The links are all Amazon affiliate links, so if you decide to buy any of these, I’ll get a few pennies, but it won’t affect your price.

- Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman — 3 1/2 stars
- Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson — 3 stars

After making this list, I realized that this was a more qualitatively good reading year than I had remembered it to be.
Hopefully, when people are making their reading lists for 2021, Vulcan Rising will be on a whole bunch of them.
