Book of the Year 2020

Here we are at the end of another year and, let’s face it, 2020 wasn’t really what we expected, was it?

Looking back on my end of year post for 2019, I can see that I read 288 books and vowed to cut it down to 20 per month in line with my Goodreads Challenge of 240 books annually. That didn’t quite go to plan as this year I’ve read and reviewed 310. I wonder where it all went wrong?

Here are this year’s Books of the Month – the links will take you to my review of each:

I think this is a good selection from the genres I tend to read. I’ve taken time to re-read my reviews for these twelve novels and it’s been a pleasure to recall the enjoyment each one gave me. It’s so hard to choose one outstanding book though as each one has it’s own merits.

However, I have decided to go with an author whose latest novel took her work to a whole new level. Annie Lyons completely surpassed all expectations with her latest novel ‘Eudora Honeysett is Quite Well, Thank You‘. This story is an absolute joy to read and raised my spirits like no other has this year; not an easy matter given everything that has gone on and I highly recommend it to all readers. I’m absolutely thrilled and delighted to make this my Book of the Year 2020. Congratulations Annie!
