Year of reading 2020
My top 18
To follow my tradition, here is part 1 of my yearly recap.
There is a total of 3 parts:
- my favorites, with my usual categories, see here below
- my stats
- my fun list with titles
2020 was a difficult year for many book bloggers, due to problems to focus on anything beside Covid-19. It actually ended up being my best year of reading ever, since I started keeping track. With a total of 123 books.
BUT I did experience something very different this year in my reading trends. I’ll talk more about this tomorrow when I present my year stats.
The final choice here below is based on the quality of the book, on how it resonated with me and my own experience, and on how it stayed with me. Some of these books may actually have got only 4 out 5 Eiffel Towers at the time I read them.

or the Goodreads page for the titles I have not reviewed yet
|Fiction Historical Fiction||NonFiction||Mystery|
Out of the 18, my favorite of all might be The Girl Behind the Wall.
I also notice that 7 are either in French (3), translated from the French (2), or set in France (2). That’s 38%.
DO YOU HAVE SOME FAVORITES
IN COMMON WITH MINE?
MORE FUN RECAP TOMORROW!
HAPPY NEW YEAR OF READING TO YOU!
All The Devils Are Here was a great addition to the series!
I actually even think it might be my favorite so far
Wow… really lovely. I’m sure 2021 will be as good, if not better!
Probably less new books, I’m so trying to focus on my various TBRs

Great list. I think I might want to read them all. I’ve just finished “I will judge you by your bookshelf” but that’s the only one of your books that I “read”.
My Statistics 2020.
Definitely all awesome titles! I should launch my own challenge, challenging my readers to read my favorites!
That is a fantastic idea.
I’m glad you like it
I have been commenting on most of your posts lately but the comments have not shown up. Perhaps you are busy with other things, but I hope you are getting the comments.
I loved seeing your favorites from 2020! I love your blog because you read so broadly, as I also like to do.
I have Migrations coming up for a reading group in January.
Sorry Judy, I have stayed away from reading lots on the computer recently. slowly getting back to it. I do have your comments, and will slowly comment and approve them. Thanks for your feedback, always much appreciated. I think you are going to love Migrations!
Several are on my TBR, but the one that shames me the most is the Fred Vargas : more than a year, I’ve been having it on my physical shelf, I bought it when it was released !! I even offered it to my sister who loves Fred Vargas too ! 2021 will be the year I read it.
Oh yes, you so need to read this! Obviously nothing to do with her rompols, which are excellent anyway
A lot of diversity there. I don’t read from as many different genres as you.
Indeed I have fun trying many genres
