TTT | Favorite Books of 2020

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.

Somehow I made it through the dumpster fire that was 2020, and so did you! Good job, keep it up! I actually didn’t read more than usual because I was actually working on site this whole time (the library I worked at didn’t close). Despite this horrible year, I actually read a lot of great books this year. They are not listed in any particular order cause you can’t ask me to rank my favorite books!

This book was just too cute for words! Fake dating, parents being the worst, friends being awesome, and two men falling in love with each other.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A heartbreaking and joyous book about gender and identity, and how parents are sometimes the worst. Ben is so beautiful and I just want to give him a hug. Nathan and Ben’s friendship turned romance is so adorable and lovely.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Such a fun mystery and game that billionaire Tobias Hawthorne leaves his grandsons and Avery Grambs. And I need the second book after that ending!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A mysterious gothic house set in the Mexican countryside. This was gorgeous and Noemi was such a fun character who loves both parties but is intelligent and independent. The whole mystery was so satisfying and I just loved the ending of the novel.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

What I loved the most about this book was seeing the improvement of Maureen Johnson’s writing from 13 Little Blue Envelopes to Truly Devious.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

A hearbreaking book, but one so important for the simple fact that there are thousands upon thousands of girls that go missing every year and most of them don’t get a movie, show, or podcast about them. But they are also loved.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Another important book on the idea that just becomes someone is different or doesn’t fit into the community’s white, straight, and Christian standards does not mean they committed the act of murder. That as the old adage says “we can’t judge a book by its cover.”

Rating: 5 out of 5.

New Orleans, murder, vampires, and all set in the late 1800s. Ahh, I loved the mystery and the characters, especially Celine and Sebastien.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

As a Jane Austen fanatic, I loved learning about how the novels played out and the meanings behind some of greatest literature.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Oh my word, this novel is so amazing! I loved the relationship Addie had with death and how she navigated through her endless life.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Happy Reading Darlings!

  1. Ooh, Inheritance Games reminds me of The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin (which won the Newbery and I think was also turned into an actual game). The Secret Radical looks really great too, since Jane Eyre is one of my perennial favorites.
    Happy TTT and Happy 2021 in advance!

  2. Truly Devious and Mexican Gothic are some of my faves as well! I love mysteries and books with wild twists, hehe 🙂

    I’m a Jane Austen fan too, and I’m so interested in Jane Austen, Secret Radical. Thank you so much for the recommendation! ❤ ❤
