End Of Year Media Round-Up [2020]

2020 is coming to an end, and with it, my first year of blogging. I compiled a list of my favorite movies, books, and TV shows that I consumed this year.

This is a list of the top (10 or 5) media I discovered this year, which means they may have been released a long time ago, but it took me a while to get to them, and they made up the high points of what I watched, saw, and read in 2020, alphabetized by name or author.

They may have made the list because of their excellence, or because they were memorable moments, or for other reasons. Regardless, these are the media that made my year.

I also included any posts I wrote about that media, if I wrote one.
