Top 10 Tuesday: Favorite Books of 2020

As this crazy year comes to a highly anticipated end, I’m looking back on all the amazing books that got me through it. I am so thankful for literature and the bookish community as I truly believe that without it I would have entirely lost my sanity this year. So let’s celebrate the greats with this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl, Favorite Books of 2020.

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

This was one of my first reads of 2020, and I fell in love with these characters and Emma Lord’s writing. It was such a heartwarming rom-com.

Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzales

I am obsessed with the movie Grease, and have been for my entire life, and I absolutely adored this modern, LGBTQ+ retelling. It even made me cry in public on the subway…

The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton

Kate Morton is one of my all-time favorite authors. I have yet to read a book of hers that has not given me a book hangover and The Clockmaker’s Daughter was no exception. The format was unique and beautifully crafted, and it left me in awe over her writing prowess and how deeply she makes me care about her characters.

The Deverill Chronicles by Santa Montefiore

This series is in the running of having my #1 spot this year. It was too hard to pick which book I liked the most, so I’m counting it all as one.

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

Another series that I just can’t decide which is my favorite so I’m including them all. It is so good and I am really grateful that I finally read them, even if I’m super late to the party.

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

I loved this book. It is the first book to ever give me similar feelings to reading Harry Potter for the first time. It is insanely clever, funny, sweet, and exciting. I’m really looking forward to continuing the rest of the series.

Fable by Adrienne Young

I devoured this book. It really took me by surprise how much I loved it and I cannot wait until book 2. Also, this cover is so stunning. I read this on my kindle and want to buy a physical copy just to look at it on my shelf.

Magic Lessons by Alice Hoffman

This probably comes as no surprise, but this is also in the running for my top spot. I love Alice Hoffman and this series in particular. The Owens women have such a strong place in my heart.

Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

It took me way too long to pick up this book, but I am so glad I finally did. Will definitely not be waiting as long to get book 3 this time!

The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follett

Just another masterpiece by my favorite author.
