Donna Davis Is there an error in the subheading? It doesn't agree with the list's title.

Probably copied 😃

I corrected the subheading. I hope that was OK...I haven't actually validated that this list all books published in 2020 yet.


message 4: by Raluca (new)

Raluca Lupei The Winds of Winter is on this list, haha that's hilarious.


message 5: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Wow, Chaos and Grime: A Year in the Life of a Chinese City is all over lots and lots of Goodreads lists - so much for people not spamming. What a shame these lists are spammed, those that do it really should take a look and themselves and feel ashamed.
