Hello! Today I have a list of some of my very favorite books of 2020. I read a lot of really amazing books last year, and I wanted to share a list of the most incredible books I read in 2020. These were my favorite of the books I rated five stars, the ones that were the most memorable and that I loved the most!
The Henna Wars, by Adiba Jaigirdar: The Henna Wars is a beautiful book, and it means a lot to me. I love the sister relationship in the book, and the writing is amazing. The plot is entertaining, and I flew through the book, never bored. My review.
Little and Lion, by Brandy Colbert: Little and Lion is an incredible book, which talks about figuring out who you are, about the importance of sibling relationships, and the struggles of having a sibling with a mental illness. It was a really powerful read, and I definitely recommend it. My review.
Tweet Cute, by Emma Lord: Tweet Cute is a fun book. It’s an entertaining book. It’s a hilarious book. It’s a fluffy YA contemporary romantic comedy, and I one hundred percent recommend it to every single one of you. The characters are amazing, and I loved the writing, especially the hilarious dialogue. I can’t wait to read more books by Emma Lord!
Far From the Tree, by Robin Benway: At one point, I was reading Far From the Tree and I was literally lying on the floor crying because of how sad the book was. There were also so many times when I laughed out loud, and couldn’t stop smiling. This book is really beautiful, and really emotional, and if you want a book that’s going to make you feel, read Far From the Tree.
The Gilded Wolves and The Silvered Serpents, by Roshani Chokshi: I read the Gilded Wolves in early 2020, and I really loved it. I had to wait a while for the sequel, but when I read it I loved it even more than the first book! The writing is really beautiful, the characters are all amazing, and the plot is interesting and very compelling. My review of The Silvered Serpents.
The Tower of Nero, by Rick Riordan: The Tower of Nero is the final book in the Trials of Apollo series, and the book means a lot to me. It was a really satisfying conclusion to the series, and to all of the Camp Half-Blood books. I felt like it wrapped up the perfect amount, and I loved getting to see so many of the characters from previous books, and to see where they were.
Aru Shah and the End of Time, by Roshani Chokshi: I read the first three Aru Shah books, and I fell in love with the world and the characters. Roshani Chokshi is one of my new favorite authors, and the very first Aru Shah book, Aru Shah and the End of Time was an incredible and fun book to read!
Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo: Six of Crows is a really popular book, and before I read it I had really high expectations because of all the wonderful things I’d heard about the book. It did not let me down! All of the characters were amazing; the Dregs are awesome. Inej is amazing, and is probably my favorite character in the book. The world, with the Grisha and everything was amazing, and I loved reading about Ketterdam, where a lot of the book takes place.
They Went Left, by Monica Hesse: They Went Left is a YA historical fiction set after world war two and is about a girl named Zofia trying to find her brother who she was separated from. It’s a really beautiful and powerful book. My review.
Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens: Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens is a fascinating book. It’s an adult historical mystery novel, and although it’s very different from what I usually read, I loved it! The ending was absolutely shocking, and I constantly find myself coming back to the book, just thinking about it and everything that happened. My review.
My Lady Jane, by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows: I read the entire trilogy by these three authors, but My Lady Jane, the first book, was definitely my favorite!! The writing is hilarious, and the plot is fast-paced and always entertaining. I loved the historical-ish parts and the fantasy thrown in.
The Priory of the Orange Tree, by Samantha Shannon: This book is amazing in so many different ways. While it definitely is difficult to understand at first, the world building is incredible and complex. The characters all have so much depth, and are all really interesting. The book is very long, at almost 900 pages but although it definitely felt intimidating at first, once I got into it I slowly but steadily pulled through it and got to the end.
The Boy Who Steals Houses, by C. G. Drews: I have been hearing the most amazing things about C. G. Drews books, and I’m so glad I finally read them!! My favorite was The Boy Who Steals Houses, because it is just such an incredible book!! The amazing sibling relationships, the always entertaining and heartbreaking plot, the pancakes… it’s all really wonderful! My review.
