This is the one year where I had ALL the time to read and then couldn’t. March through May was pretty difficult. Picked up many books only to put them down again. Once I got past the initial difficulty, reading became pleasurable again and some books stood out to me in a big way. This is a list of my faves read in 2020 in no particular order.
A Good Neighborhood by Therese Anne Fowler
If It Bleeds by Stephen King
The Dutch House by Ann Patchett
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
The Second Home by Christina Clancy
The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James
Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam
Not a bad list considering everything else in 2020 was a real challenge. All links point to my review of each book so check them out if you are looking for something to read.
I don’t want to jinx it but 2021 should be better and hopefully filled with some really good reads.
