Top 8 Favorite Books of 2020

Tuesday, December 29, 2020

I don’t give many 5 stars out. It’s crazy to think that I read over 100 books this year and I only gave 5 stars to 8 books. I suppose 2020 had that effect on me. No matter the reason, I just didn’t love the books I read this year except the following few.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is: Top 10 Favorite Books of the Year (2020):

There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon: Every book I’ve read from Menon thus far has been a 5 star so this was expected. I adored the fat representation in this: readers don’t usually get to see an overweight character who accepts herself and loves herself. And, of course, the romance was absolutely adorable! 

Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust: I haven’t read a fantasy in a while that focused on an array of demons. As I usually go into books blind, I was pleasantly surprised that the tale involved a gorgeous world with creatures of the night. Plus, this novel sought to confuse readers with many morally grey characters, both demon and human. Loved it so much!

Daylighters by Rachel Caine: I can’t believe I finished the fifteenth and final book of the Morganville Vampires series. It’s taken me years to read and I’ve enjoyed every second of it. Overall, the series was solid and entertaining, each novel feels like an episode in a TV series. This finale was fantastic, an equal balance of action, suspense, romance, and vampires!

Wild Savage Stars by Kristina Perez: It took me a while to pick this sequel up because I knew it would hurt my heart. And it did. But I loved it anyway. This series retells the classic tragedy of Tristan and Isolde with a little bit of magic thrown in and it’s been such a wild ride. I can’t wait to read the third one which released this year!

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: As soon as I finished this and loved it so much, I couldn’t believe I didn’t read this right after Mead’s Vampire Academy series. Adrian hadn’t been my favorite in the Vampire Academy series but I’m so happy he got his own spin off series with Sydney. This one was so much fun!

A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer: I’m not sure if this sequel of A Curse So Dark and Lonely was better than the first but it was right on up there. This one doesn’t focus on the same people, rather readers follow Grey this time, and I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. I loved it. The structure of following a different character allows us to look at other characters in a different perspective. This is so fast paced and I loved everything about it!

Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell: When I began the sequel to Carry On, I wasn’t expecting a road trip novel but that’s what we got. It doesn’t read like a sequel, if that makes sense. It took some turns I wasn’t expecting and I’m most excited to read the third and final book next year.

Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon: The book quickly became a new favorite, and I’m looking forward to reading more from Rachel Lynn Solomon in the future. Today Tonight Tomorrow captures readers from the very first page with its well-developed characters, enemies-to-lovers romance and love letter to Seattle. You definitely don't want to miss this one!
