Best books of 2020

What a year!… WHAT A FREAKY STRA NGE YEAR! (couldn’t help myself) It has been a roller-coaster and am not sure what 2021 will bring so I have mixed feelings at the end of the year.

Haven’t written anything in a long time, out of laziness mostly, but also because I felt like I hadn’t much to say. The reality surpassed by far my imagination. So instead I read.

I read a lot, 53 books to be more exact, according to GoodReads (true that three of them were nursery books, but needed to read them for research). There were books I contemplated on this year and also books I totally forgot I read.

Looking through my Goodreads list (thanks God we have this app available) I could make a top 5ish of the best books I have read this year.

1. On the first place, holding the trophy (too bad it didn’t win the Goodreads award) is Anxious People by Fredrik Backman. What a beautiful and insightful book! I have discovered Backman’s style of writing in this book and I was hooked. Reading all his other books now.

2. On the second place was The Midnight Library by Matt Haig- winner of the Goodreads Choice Award 2020. O really enjoyed the story and decided to read it after the winners were announced to see if it was worth it. And it totally was. Interesting storyline and it makes you hope that Midnight Library is not fictional.

3. Best thriller I have read this year is The Pilgrim by Terry Hayes. What a captivating, interesting plot. Even though a long read, it was entertaining all the way through.

4. Best romantic chick-lit, there were two that stood out so I have to nominate them both. Both of them from one of my favourite authors of this genre, Lindsey Kelk. They were One in a Million and In Case You Missed It. What can I say, Lindsey Kelk never dissapoints when it comes to good laugh and nice romance.

5. Best self-help book (because we really needed those this year) was Atomic Habits by James Clear, a book I really recommend to everyone who wants to change their habits. Remember it takes only two minutes.

Special mention goes to American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins and This is what happens by Chris Wind, both of them very introspective and, in different ways, heart-breaking.

Do this was it, best books I have read this year. What were yours? Have you read any of these? What are your thoughts?
