Well, it’s been quite a while since my last post. Without going into too much information, I’ve had a really tough couple of weeks. (Merry Christmas and Happy New Year by the way!) Things are starting to look up now, and I want to get back into posting on here. So, if you wouldn’t mind I would absolutely LOVE any feedback on what you’d like to see on my blog, that would be super helpful, especially because I want to priortise posting on here a bit more.
For todays post, I wanted to chat about my top 5 favourite books of 2020. I managed to read 120 books in 2020 which I’m super happy and impressed with! I really discovered my love of reading last year. I’ve set this years goal for 80, which doesn’t feel as intimidating.
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
This is a really heavy read, so definitely be aware of that before going into it, but it’s a book I’ll never forget and it also happens to be the first book I read in 2020.
The Most Fun We Ever Had by Claire Lombardo
2020 was the year I discovered how much I love contemporary fiction. Especially those of a family, spanning through their lifetimes, I suppose it’s because they are so detailed you really get to know the characters and get attached to the story. This was a long read from memory, but I’d go as far to say I’d read it again because I loved it that much.
28 summers by Elin Hilderbrand
Erin Hilderbrand an author I discovered last year, and I fell in love with her style of writing since the first read. This book is equal parts heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time. It’s still a book I think about every so often.
Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
A hyped up read, but worth all the praise it gets. I probably recommend this book the most, because I haven’t quite read a story like this one before. I also think it would make an incredible film!
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
I can’t believe I’ve never read this book before. It’s an absolute EYE-OPENER, and I was hooked the whole way through. I’d recommend *everybody* to read this at some point in their life. It’s a must.
Which has been your favourite book of 2020?
