Reviews of the Day, 2020: Audio

In a sense, every weekday is award day here at Booklist. Our Review of the Day highlights especially noteworthy titles by giving them the coveted front-and-center space on Booklist Online. We rotate adult, youth, and audio titles throughout the year, choosing titles that showcase the spotlight in the current issue of Booklist. Some Reviews of the Day are high-demand titles, while others are less-known gems we think deserve more visibility.

In keeping with the season of year-end “best” lists, we’ve compiled ALL of the Reviews of the Day for 2020, from January to December 18; divided them into four categories (adult books, books for youth, audiobooks, and graphic novels); and will be posting one category—and with it, dozens of Reviews of the Day—a day over the next few days. Below you’ll find our final Review of the Day roundup (for 2020, at least), including every audiobook Review of the Day from the last year. We hope you’ll enjoy this look back at a vibrant year in reading, and we’ll see you this time next year with more reading (and listening) recommendations.
