My 2020 Favourite Reads


Normally at this time of year I post my top ten books of the year. I go back and look through my list of everything I’ve read and loved and then I whittle that list down to ten. This year I can’t do that. Every time I try to take a book out of this list it just feels wrong. I just loved these ones so much.


I know 17 is a slightly odd number but 2020 has been an odd year so I’m going with it. Here are the books I’ve read this year that I’ve really loved and would highly recommend. Those marked with an * were very kindly gifted to me and I’ve put the publication dates in brackets for the 2021 releases.
