Books by Impact: 2020 – Fiction

Why Impact?

I don’t refer to books as good or bad.

First of all, there is no definition for what makes a objectively good or bad book. Plus, usually when a person refers to a book as good or bad, that ascription is entirely based on the person’s state of mind at the time that they read it.

Secondly, I have to consider the fact that the author most likely put TON of effort into writing the book. So, even if it doesn’t resonate with me, I have a healthy appreciation for the fact that the book even exists in the first place.

If you’re curious about how I’m defining impact, read this post.
