Top Ten Books of 2020

Posted December 29, 2020 by Cristina (Girl in the Pages) in Book Recommendations & Lists, Books, Features, Top Ten Tuesday, Weekly Features/Memes / 12 Comments

December is one of my favorite months for blogging because there’s so many fun wrap-up posts to be made and read! Arguably the ~most important~ is the best books of the year lists that everyone comes up with! While this year I didn’t read quite as many books as I had hoped to, I did read many excellent books and the amount of 5 star reads I read this year is over double that of last year! I am thrilled to say that every single book on my “best of” list for 2020 was a strong 5 star rating for me!

*Please note these books are not ranked in any particular- and I don’t know if I could force rank them if you asked me to! Also, not all of these are 2020 releases- they are just the best books that I personally read in 2020.

I’m also linking up with Top Ten Tuesday for this post!

The Simple Wild | Such a stunning read set in Alaska that I slept on for too long!

Wild at Heart | The sequel to The Simple Wild, it’s a rare occurrence when a sequel is just as good as its predecessor, but that’s what happened here!

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires | I never thought a horror book would make my “best of” list, but I could not put this one down!

The Most Fun We Ever Had | Loved this multi-generational family story! So glad my work book club introduced me to this one.

Such a Fun Age | This one 100% lived up to all of the hype.

What I Carry | A quieter YA novel set in the Pacific Northwest, the story was both poignant and beautiful.

The Heir Affair | The sequel to The Royal We and even better in my opinion!

The Last Train to Key West | I am honestly living for Chanel Cleeton’s historical fiction companion novels that follow the Perez family!

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder | The BEST YA thriller I have read in a long time.

The Grace Year | I have said for years that I am burnt out on dystopian but this book changed that!

Did any of these books make your best of list for 2020? What was your number one book of 2020?
