Favourite Books of 2020 | Second Half (My Year in Books)


The end of 2020 is near enough here now and with it my reading for the year has pretty much concluded (I am finishing a reread, but I don't include those in yearly lists) so I'm taking a look at some favourites. I have already shared my favourites from the first half of this year, and so the list I'm sharing today only includes books read in the last six months of the year.

What makes a favourite book is quite a personal thing, for me though a favourite is more about how I felt during my reading experience as opposed to the technical qualities and make up of the writing... Also, most of my favourites tend to have the rereadability factor too. 

All book links below will take you to Goodreads

FICTION
The Highland Falcon Thief by M.G. Leonard & Sam Sedgman (representing the Adventures on Trains series)
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden (representing the Winternight trilogy)

NONFICTION

What book(s) have been your favourite over the last six months?

  1. I really liked Endurance too! And Fake Law sounds like one I should read. The justice system is weird and confusing.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Fake Law is a great read, but just to note, it is based on England & Wales law.

  2. Happy New Year Jade, it has been a very long time, its Marce from Tea Time with Marce. I have added Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo from recommendations. Hope you are well.

    1. Ah, Marce - lovely to see you here! A happy (belated) new year.

      Clap When You Land is a wonderful read. I hope you enjoy it.

      I try to have a good balance of fiction & nonfiction throughout the year.

  4. Oh, The Fortnight in September is so good. I need to read that again. Just managed to publish my best of 2020 last night - the second half of each list will be from the past six months, I'd say. Happy reading in 2021!

    1. Yes, The Fortnight in September was great - I didn't realise I would enjoy it just as much as I did. A hidden gem within the realms of classics.

      I'm late in catching up with my blog, but I'll be sure to check out the books you enjoyed in 2020. Thank you - and happy reading to you also.

  5. Great list, Jade! I haven't read many of your faves, so you've added to my TBR!

    But, I did enjoy The Lightkeeper's Daughter on audio, and I LOVE Paddington from my own childhood!

    Also, our family listened to Edward Tulane on audio on a road trip many years ago, and we all loved it - heartbreaking and beautiful and heartwarming!

    Looks like some great books for you last year -

    1. 2020 was a good reading year, for sure.

      You've summed up Edward Tulane so well in just those three words.
