My top books of 2020
These books have my heart, they will give you pure serotonin and you will undoubtedly laugh or cry.
I really struggled to take 140 books and narrow it down to 10 books, it really was not going to happen.
Nevertheless, I present to you, my top 12 books of 2020. Here we goooo….
- Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
If you read my review of this book in October you will understand the love I have this book. It’s brilliant, the world is built fantastically and Bree is a motherf**king badass. I’m not saying any more, nothing else needs to be said, just read it!
Synopsis – After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-year-old Bree Matthews wants nothing to do with her family memories or childhood home. A residential program for bright high schoolers at UNC–Chapel Hill seems like the perfect escape—until Bree witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus.
- House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
Okay, do you love the supernatural world? Do you love badassery and a whodunnit? Do you root for a protagonist who has a trash dad? Yep? This is for you girl, this book took me 300 pages to get into, but when you get into it. GIRL LEMME TELL YOU. WHEN YOU GET INTO IT?! That sh*t SLAPS.
Synopsis – Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life—working hard all day and partying all night—until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She’ll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.
- Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
Do you see this book here? THIS BOOK RIGHT HERE? Talia Hibbert did the damn thing!
I fell in love with Chloe straight away but the POC rep in this book was brilliant.
It was saucy in parts but also a bit tame if you’re used to read stuff a bit more filthier.
Synopsis – Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan, and a list. After almost—but not quite—dying, she’s come up with seven directives to help her “Get a Life”, and she’s already completed the first: finally moving out of her glamorous family’s mansion. The next items?
- The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E. Schwab
Jumping in here to say that this should come as no surprise, I’m not even adding any commentary here. Just read this and SAVOUR it!
Synopsis – France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.
Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.
But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.
- Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko
I will never forget me being steadfast that this book, as book 1 in a series, would probably not be 5 stars. HAHAHAHAHA. Jordan Ifueko told me to eat my words and then some. My morals were seriously questioned with this book, I didn’t know who I was rooting for… The world building was phenomenal, I could picture everything vividly.
Synopsis – Tarisai has always longed for the warmth of a family. She was raised in isolation by a mysterious, often absent mother known only as The Lady. The Lady sends her to the capital of the global empire of Aritsar to compete with other children to be chosen as one of the Crown Prince’s Council of 11.
If she’s picked, she’ll be joined with the other Council members through the Ray, a bond deeper than blood. That closeness is irresistible to Tarisai, who has always wanted to belong somewhere.
But The Lady has other ideas, including a magical wish that Tarisai is compelled to obey: Kill the Crown Prince once she gains his trust. Tarisai won’t stand by and become someone’s pawn—but is she strong enough to choose a different path for herself?
