My 2020 Top 10 Books

Hey all! It appears Iโ€™m posting mine a few days later than everyone else, but better late than never, right?! Hereโ€™s my top reads of 2020! ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ“š

So, where to begin?! Well, Iโ€™ll be here all day if I explained why I loved them all, so Iโ€™ll give brief highlights!

The first book in this stack I read was Tweet Cute. One of the most mushy lovely books I have ever read, and is genuinely a feel good read if youโ€™re ever in need of a funny pick me up read.

The most surprising book to blow me away in 2020 was Mexican Gothic. I LOVED this book. It oozed gothic elegance and continues to grip me whenever I think back on it.

I listened to the audiobook of The Familiars and itโ€™s my favourite so far (not counting the Illuminae Files as they are a different experience altogether). The story and its narrator, Katie Sobey, was so vivid that I was in a book hangover for days afterward.

I also discovered one of the most wonderful series perfect for bookworms: Pages & Co. These books are just magic and a delight to read. The 3rd one has been my favourite adventure to date (I canโ€™t wait for the next three books!)

I read The Once and Future Witches during my fatherโ€™s ill health/passing, and it gave me the feeling of sisterhood and support that I really needed. Itโ€™s a special book.

The Midnight Library is another special book; life affirming, good for the soul and a genuinely good story.

Miracle on Ebenezer St is a book of sheer wonder and so festive – I even shed some tears with this one!

The Vanishing Half? Worth ALL the hype.

The Corset and The Devil and the Dark Water were stand out mysteries for me. Iโ€™ll never, ever forget the story of Ruth Butterham, and I really loved the satanic roots of TDATDW.

Lastly, but by no means least, I discovered my favourite book of all time: Get A Life, Chloe Brown. This book spoke to me on such a personal level, that by the end, all I could do was hug the book. I felt understood and respected by how well the author conveyed chronic pain/illness, and certainly made me feel accepted. I canโ€™t get the words to do the book justice, just that Iโ€™m eternally grateful.

Have you read any of these? Let me know! ๐Ÿฅฐ
