My Favorite Reads: Best of 2020

My Favorite Reads: 2020

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.


Summertime Reading

Summertime Reading

This is what I hope to read this summer. Some books are older, some kind of new, some haven’t come out yet. If I read any of these this summer I will be happy. Reading is such a challenge right now!

The End of the Day by Bill Clegg

The Safe Place by Anna Downes

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

There are a few others I may toss in depending on mood but I am happy with this list. It’s a good mix of old and new.

What will you be reading this summer?
