Last year was my first time participating in this event. I didn’t realize how fun and exciting I would find it both rolling out my own lists, but also checking out other participant lists. And, here we are again…
Though not as many as in the past, I still read a staggering amount of books this year. I point this out because it makes narrowing down my favorites to ten is excruciatingly difficult. Therefore, here’s what I’ve chosen to do. I’ll give you ten of my favorite 2020 reads not necessarily published this year though most of them are. I’ve also scattered more of my favs into other Top 10 posts throughout the week.
So excited to share these. In no specific order:
Cross Her Heart by Melinda Leigh, Romantic Suspense
I love the blend of series story and edgy murder mystery.
Deviate by Jay Kristoff, Young Adult Dystopian, narrated by Erin Spencer
It was dark and desperate, but triumphant and the characters were fab.
Into the Dark by Karen Rose, Romantic Suspense
Down shadowy streets, cunning killer, wonderful pair, and those boys were stellar.
A Brush With Shadows by Anna Lee Huber, Historical Mystery
Engaging romantic detective pair, gothic tones.
Cowboy Strong by Carolyn Brown, Contemporary Romance
Country charm and such feels for the whole story.
Persuaded to Sail by Jack Caldwell, Historical Romance
Authenticity, riveting story of characters and romance after the wedding.
Wolf Untamed by Paige Tyler, Paranormal Romance
Series strength, Relationship between hero and heroine’s son and heroine
Intermittent Fasting for Beginners by Amanda Swaine, Nutrition and Health
