What are your favorite books/audiobooks that you read in 2020? 

I am doing a best post with Carole, but then there are so many books that I do want to mention besides the ultimate best of. I will save 3 of those until our post! Stay tuned!

A dangerous Collaboration by Deanna Raybourn

The best Veronica book so far. I could not put it down!

Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

Cool fantasy with a bunch of older guys going on one last adventure.

Alpha Night by Nalini Singh

It gave me ALL the feels!

Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire

The lightest in the series, fun!

The rage of Dragons by Evan Winter

A really slow start, did not almost make it cos of that. But the last half was just so freaking epic

Sing, unburied, sing by Jesmyn Ward

Just really good prose!

Artificial condition by Martha Wells

It was just great fun! Sadly this one was the best of all I the ones I read

The Crossing Places by Elly Griffits

The book that led me on my 12 book long obsession this fall!

The silence of the girls by Pat Barker

Beautiful, sad and haunting

I also re-read the beginning of The Wheel of time by Robert Jordan, epic as always!

And book 6 and 7 of The Others by Anne bishop, great listen.

And that was it :D I read some great books, I listened to many more. My ultimate best of is coming up and I will also do a stats post later on.


  1. I haven't heard many of these but I did tried to read one of the Murderbot books but sadly, I couldn't get into it. I don't think Martha Wells' writing style is to my liking.

    I hope you have a lovely 2021.

    1. I hear you, this was the best one, then not so much. I also tried a fantasy by her and so not for me

  2. Love Veronica Speedwell and the next book is on my historical favs list. Yep, Alpha Night, too! :)

  3. Looks like you read some good ones.

  4. I think that the Veronica Speedwell series gets better with every book. I need to get back to Murderbot soon.

  5. I do love Veronica Speedwell so much. I am surprised you only have Elly Griffiths book on this list!! :-)

    1. Well, I mean I could not go all crazy ;) It is all implied that they ALL ROCK

  6. Murderbot is awesome, and Kings of the Wyld is awesome! And I am going to get to The rage of Dragons, hopefully soon.

    1. Slow beginning, I do warn you, but then you might love that

  7. Love combing through your list for books I will find epic, too. I've only read two of those and I remember your reviews on several others that I added to my list.

    1. I used to mention like a million, but I have calmed down ;)

  8. Sugar Sky was deceptively light, at least in a way. It had a strong message and my favourite Wayward Children heroine so far - I mean, a plus-size swimmer/mermaid who isn't a compulsive eater? (not that such a character wouldn't deserve their own book, but I liked how McGuire subverted a trope here).

    1. Light in some ways yes, more so than the darker ones. And all that fluffy candy :D But yes she does manage to still put in so much more

  9. I haven't read any of these (yet). I just started reading Nalini Singh's Psy-Changling series and am really enjoying it. Oh and I have read the first Others book. I need to really catch up on that series!

    1. It just gets better, The Others
      And I really want to try the psy from the start again
