Top 10 Fiction Books of 2020

Wow, thank God that absolute shitshow of a year is over. Obviously, no magical reset button was pressed on 1st January, but here’s hoping that 2021 is somewhat better than 2020. Everyone had their own way of coping with 2020 and one of my coping strategies was reading. Books gave me a place to escape to mentally when there wasn’t anywhere that I could escape to physically. The following ten books were my favourite literary escapes of 2020. Click on the book titles to see my review.

Archangel’s Sun, Nalini Singh

Changeling, Matt Wesolowski

Darkness Dawns, Dianne Duvall

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, Grady Hendrix

The Midnight Library, Matt Haig

A Deal with the Elf King, Elise Kova

Audition, Ryu Murakami

The Testaments, Margaret Atwood

It would seem that I never actually wrote a review for this.

The Library of the Unwritten, A.J. Hackwith

Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982, Cho Nam-Joo

  1. Some of my favourites were Normal People by Sally Rooney, the Five by Hallie Rübenhold, and To be Taught if Fortunate by Becky Chambers

    A deal with the elf king was actually my last book of 2020

    1. I read The Five as well! I loved the fact that the focus wasn’t on Jack the Ripper, but on the ‘canonical’ five and their lives. How did you find A Deal with the Elf King?

    1. How are you finding The Southern Book Club’s Guide? Have you tried any of Grady Hendrix’s other books? He has a non-fiction book called Paperbacks From Hell which I highly recommend too!

      1. I’m really enjoying it, and the narrator on the audiobook is fantastic! I haven’t read any of his other books yet I’ll add Paperbacks From Hell to the TBR!


  2. Archangel Sun was definitely on my top favourite books of 2020. I have the Southern Book Club’s Guide on my wish list along with the midnight library. I can’t wait for Nalini Singh to release another book this year!

    1. Same here! I wonder who the next book will be about. Do you have any guesses? I really can’t recommend The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires and The Midnight Library. I hope you enjoy them 😍

      1. As much as I want it to be Illium, it will most likely be Aodhan. Everyone is so keen for Illium (well I know I am) but I think she wants to save that till last, but with everything that happened in Archangel Sun I could be wrong…
