I didn’t talk about books here on the blog much last year. I didn’t talk about much of anything, actually. But we know I love books, and so, naturally, I wanted to share some of my favorite books I read in 2020.
The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett — there’s a reason this book is as popular as it is. I read The Mothers years ago and loved it, and TVH was even better.
Luster by Raven Leilani — I loved this book so much, even though it made me cringe often. So glad my twenties are long behind me.
Stray: A Memoir by Stephanie Danler — I devoured this memoir in something like two sittings the second it arrived in my mailbox. Danler has such a way with words. I read everything she writes.
Beach Read by Emily Henry — This book was just the fun, light, romantic read that I needed. Such a feel good story.
Writers & Lovers by Lily King — I absolutely love love loved this book. Read it in March and then again in May.
Apartment by Teddy Wayne — I didn’t want this book to end.
All Adults Here by Emma Straub — I loved absolutely everything about this book. It’s the kind of book that I wish I wrote.
All in all, including the books I read for work, I read 56 books in 2020. This year I’m aiming for 60. I started off the year with The Book of Moods: How I Turned My Worst Emotions Into My Best Life, and am now listening to The Wrong Family on audio.
P.S. This list of books I was going to finish off 2020 with? Didn’t read (or re-read any of them. Ha!)
