Year of reading 2020: Part 1 – My top 18

Year of reading 2020
Part 1
 My top 18

To follow my tradition, here is part 1 of my yearly recap.
There is a total of 3 parts:

  1. my favorites, with my usual categories, see here below
  2. my stats
  3. 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
