Jessica’s Top 10 of 2020

 

Well guys, it is December 31st and WE MADE IT!  We have just hours until 2020 is over!!!   Today we are ending the year with Jessica’s Top 10 of 2020:

 

10. The Suicide House by Charlie Donlea
This is my first read by Donlea and the second in a series that can be read as standalone books.  I REALLY enjoyed this one and I had issues with thrillers this year.  My review is here.

9.  The Companion by Katie Alender
This is one to read if you enjoy YA and Horror! Like The Suicide House, this one pulls you in from the very first line!  My double review with my friend Yami from A Bookworm’s Thoughts is here.

 

8. Love, Creekwood by Becky Albertalli
I absolutely adore Simon and the gang in this book series. Albertalli did not have to write this book-end of the series, but she did for the fans. And we fans say THANK YOU!  My review is here.

7. Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel
This is one that should not have worked for me with my issues with unreliable narrators but I absolutely LOVED it! I read it in 5 days, which for me is great with working full time and running this site (which is like an unpaid part time job that I love!) My review is here.

6. Remember by Shervin Jamali
This is a romance that transcends time/religion and takes you down a path you would never expect to go down! Bravo!  My review is here.

5. When by Victoria Laurie
A YA with a teen who has a very unique gift!  What would you do if you had the gift that Maddie does?  What is her gift? You can see my review here to find out.

4. Inside Voices by Sarah Davis
This is one that I was not expecting to enjoy as much as I did. It has a bit of everything and is my first book that takes place in Alaska. My review is here.

3.  My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing
This one was THE THRILLER from me for 2020 and  also a debut novel! I cannot wait to see what else Downing comes up with! A couple who has been married for 15 years decides to spice up their marriage… with…. Murder?!?!?!?! Bring it on!  My review is here.

2.  I Love You Too, Daddy by Shervin Jamali
2020 introduced me to Shervin Jamali and he made my Top 10 twice this year! I honestly thought nothing would beat this one out for my number one read.  This is one that just needs to be read and had a lot of personal meaning for me since I lost my father at the age of 19, so it brought out lots of emotions for me. My review is here.

 

And my Top Read for 2020 is…………

Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds

In a year of chaos and race issues, for me this one is fitting that it is my top read of the year.  This is exactly what I needed for my 2020.  Long Way Down is a very powerful novel that I listened to the audiobook and it MUST be read it that way! I could say more, but just check out my review here. I will definitely be reading more from Jason Reynolds in the future.

Have you read any of these books? If so what did you think? Have you added any of these to your TBR?  Let us know!
