Favourite Reads of 2020!


I thought creating my "favourite reads of 2020" list would have been super difficult but when flicking through my Goodreads list for 2020, I found it surprisingly easy... I don't know why, for I had loads of 4 and 5 star reads this year, but this bunch just jumped out at me immediately!

(It's probably worth noting that this list is my favourite reads of 2020 but some of them were published before 2020; I just hadn't read them before.)

🌻

Druid Vices & A Vodka by Annette Marie


The Little Bookshop of Love Stories by Jaimie Admans


Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid


The Song of Achilles by Madeline Millar


The Switch by Beth O'Leary


Damned Souls and A Sangria by Annette Marie


Rhythm, Chord & Malykin by Mariana Zapata


The 12 Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss


Grave War by Kalayna Price


You Had Me At Hockey by Kelly Jamieson

What's on your "best of 2020" list?

  3. I love seeing Daisy Jones on here. I really loved that one and was so wrapped up in the lives of those characters. And seeing that Zapata book reminds me that I've let another year pass and *still* haven't read anything by her!

  4. I love reading everyone's favorites of the year! I need to look up the Druid Vices and a Vodka book! And the Bookshop book, I love bookshop books. :)

  5. That's so great that you had a group of books that easily stood out. One of these days I will finally read Daisy Jones & The Six. I may pick The 12 Dates of Christmas for my December Christmas read next year.

  6. Yay for You Had Me at Hockey. 12 Dates Looks good and I need to read that Zapata. Love her stories! Hope you have a lovely New Year, Nicci! :)

  7. Yeah for Twelve Dates! That book was stellar. I want to scream all day about it. I like seeing Jamieson up there too. I'm a fan. I need to read the new O'Leary. I liked The Flatshare a lot and am thinking The Switch would be a hit for me.

  8. Some of these I couldn't agree more with and others I definitely need to make time for!

  9. I haven't read any of these yet, but I definitely want to start the Guild Codex series, and The Twelve Dates of Christmas sounds like fun. I also really want to read Madeline Miller, but I'll probably start with Circe.

  23. Yaay Daisy Jones! I loved that book and I believe it's being made into a movie?

    I've read Circe but not Song of Achilles. I hear nothing but wonderful and heartbreaking things for Song of Achilles.

    Have a nice New Year!!!

  26. I see Daisy Jones everywhere, I’ve avoided it as I’m not sure it’s my cup of tea but I’m torn as it’s gets so much love! I think it’s getting a film or series soon too. Happy New Year when it comes!

  27. Daisy Jones forever! That one was so so soooooo good.

  28. The Little Shop of Love Stories looks so good!

    I bought The Song of Achilles (Or was it Circe?) but I haven't read it yet. I need to read it soon.

    Happy New Year!
