2020 is over, and that means its time for me to share my Top 10 reads of the year!

What were your favourite reads of 2020?
1. Run, Rebel by Manjeet Mann
A beautiful, heartfelt read full of hope and also courage, and one that I couldn’t stop thinking about long after finishing it.
2. A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Just an incredible retelling of Beauty and the Beast, that blew my mind! It kicked off my obsession with this series thats for sure.
3. Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
A heartfelt, beautifully written story about loss and ultimately the coming together of family. I was instantly pulled in by the poetic writing style and found myself captivated within minutes.
4. Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson
An incredible read and one that I can’t speak of highly enough. Holly Jackson is making a name for herself as one of the best YA mystery authors in the business. To say I cannot wait to read what she writes next would be a huge understatement.
5. Hideous Beauty by William Hussey
Hideous Beauty was an incredible, thrilling, beautiful read that I didn’t want to finish. It’s captivating but will also break your heart..trust me.

Wonderland was a compelling, engaging read which does show you how gritty the world of privilege and luxury can be. Its addictive, trippy style and intriguing, thrilling plot will certainly pull you in and leave you mesmerised.

An enchanting, spectacular read that did put an original twist on the story of Cinderella. It is certainly one that you all need to be looking out for and putting on your TBR’s.
8. Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco
This was a thrilling, compelling read that had me gripped from the very start. This world that Maniscalco has created is rich in magic, history, mystery and incredible sounding food, and I, for one cannot wait to get my hands on book two.
9. Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust
Girl, Serpent, Thorn was an incredible read that I was blown away by! For a standalone fantasy, it exceeded all my expectations and I am excited to read what Melissa Bashardoust writes next.
