Top Ten DNFs of 2020

Another band wagon for me! I DNFed a fair number of books this year. These are the ones I remember best. Space Opera by Catherynne M.

October TBR: Stretch Goal City

It's spooky season now. This year, I'm leaning in EXTRA hard to the pumpkins, black cats, and skeletons. (The election is incoming. Let me have this joy.) I crafted this overly ambitious October TBR that I almost certainly won't finish, BUT...what if I did? Wouldn't that be sooo spoooky?
