My Favourite Books of 2020

We made it!! The year that we never imagined could turn out the way it did!Β  I’ll be crossing my fingers extra tight this New Year’s Eve in the hope that the year ahead of us doesn’t turn out the same!
But there is always books and they’ve been more important than ever, for me especially this year!Β  And this task of choosing my favourites from the past year never gets any easier! As of today, I’ve read just over 200 books and they’ve all played their part in keeping me sane (ish!) over the past 12 months, so thank you to ALL the authors who help us escape the world through words!!
So, this list of 20 books is in no particular order, but are just the books that have stayed with me the longest – the books that made me laugh, made me cry (a lot!) and had me on the edge of my seat!! Click on the book title for a link to my GoodReads reviews!
