Hi Friends!! I am so excited to bring you this post where I get to talk about my top 5 books of the year! I did not reach my reading goal but I still managed to read 95 books this year. It’s so hard to narrow it down to just 5 books, but I did it haha and I hope you find a new book or a favourite of yours as well .
I spent the morning watching Kpop end of the year concerts and it was honestly the best way to start off the day. Happy New Years Eve, please remember to be safe!
5. Wolfsong by TJ Klune
This is another book I will be adding to my favourite books of all time list. Seriously, it has everything; found family, angsty relationships, werewolves and action. This book gave me all the feels, I wasn’t ready for it. The whole premise of Wolfsong is pack. Pack is family and you get to make your family. We have Ox, a teenage boy living in a small town, working at a garage when he is out for a walk and stumbles upon a group of people. He instantly forms an intense bond with a young child named Joe. This book is told in a span of 10 years, so I can’t get into too many details. But I cannot wait to continue the series in 2021.
4. Crave by Tracy Wolff
This book was the vampire book I needed!! It dosent have the best writing or the most amazing plot but it was so much fun. When Grace’s parents die in an accident, she moves to Alaska to attend an academy run by her uncle. She takes a liking to Jaxon, the hottest guy in school. The spell is soon broken when he says she’s in danger and she should never have come to the school. This was the perfect angsty romantic vampire story I wanted. I loved these characters so much. I actually liked the sequel even more than this one and I’m dying for the third!
3. The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune
I had such high expectations for this book because everyone seemed to love it, and I’m thrilled to be lumped into that group. This book is worth all the hype! I actually have two TJ Klune books in my top 5, he seriously became a favourite author this year. A caseworker whose job is to inspect magical orphanages, is assigned to visit a special home. He meets a variety of unusual magical children. These kids were all so heartwarming and sweet, I loved them al so so much. Such a charming book that I want to read over and over again.
I feel like this is another book I haven’t stop talking about since I read it. This is an adult fantasy romance, and Ohmygod guys it was so good. I cannot say that enough. It has everything a good romance needs along with fantasy tropes, it’s perfect. Poppy is the maiden, a woman who is veiled from society. She is not to be seen or interact with anyone. Of course, she finds ways around these rules, and one night she sneaks out and runs into an unexpected encounter with a guard named Hawke. I loved these characters so much and the sequel is just as good!
If you follow my Instagram then it will be no surprise that this book is my number one! This is the first Schwab book that I have given 5 starts to, and the story itself will hold a special place in my heart. This book is about a girl named Addie who dosent want to live a mundane life, so she makes a deal with a devil at night. Now everyone she meets forgets who she is once she’s out of sight. Three hundred years pass, and finally a boy in a bookshop remembers her. This is a beautiful story about love and art. And I cannot wait to reread it.
Ohmygodddddd there you have it my top 5 favourite books of 2020! I seriously cannot wait to say goodbye to this strange and dreadful year. However I am happy for the pieces of joy I found despite the pandemic. And I hope you were able to as well.
Good bye 2020!!!
