Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week is Favorite Books of 2020. I am showcasing all the five-star reads I was lucky enough to read this year. It may or may not come as a surprise to those who frequent my blog that I have SO MANY fiction books on my list this year. I discovered several new YA authors who I absolutely fell in love with. The books are in no particular order.
A must-read for all who believe that women deserve to be as free as men. I wish I could make everyone read it.
Surely this one needs no explanation?
Fucking brilliant. Absolutely beautiful.
My first Courtney Summers' book. Totally fell in love and will forever read everything she ever writes.
Absolutely stunning. Morris is a must-read.
Parker is without a doubt one of my all-time favorite characters.
Tiffany Jackson is another must-read I discovered this year. I thought Monday's Not Coming would be my fave read, but then I read this one and HOLY SHIT. Brilliant.
Had me bawling by the end. So good.
And just when I thought Jackson couldn't top Allegedly, I read Grown and it was EVERYTHING.
Another one that needs no explanation. McManus is Queen of YA thrillers.
I have so much respect for Estep as an investigator. Having been to Villisca myself, I can attest to the mojo there. I don't know that I would ever go back, though I can not get this awful, sad story out of my head.
Reading this was like sitting with a friend. Candid and honest, as well as highly intelligent. I miss that.
I can't imagine not only going through the physical and emotional pain, the trauma, then relieving it during the trial, but then having to read every fucking day about the 'Stanford swimmer' whose future was ruined by him choosing to sexually assault an unconscious woman. Fuck that guy, I hope he is never able to show his face in public ever again.
I fucking hate Weinstein, and all men in power like him who use that power in such a disgusting and cruel way. I can't wait until he goes to trial in LA and gets decades more time added to his sentence.
I thought surely nothing could compare to the power of The Hate U Give, but I was wrong. Another must-read author. Thomas is incredibly talented and I am looking forward to T.H.U.G.'s prequel.
There you have it. How many of these have you read and loved/loathed? Let me know!
