My Favorite Reads of 2020

I don't think there has been a year when I read so few books as COVID-19 destroyed my attention span almost completely.  That said, there were a number of books that stood out to me this year.  ENJOY!

Ann Cleeves - FROZEN
Charles Finch - THE LAST PASSENGER
C.S. Harris - WHO SPEAKS FOR THE DAMNED
Louise Penny - ALL THE DEVILS ARE HERE
Dana Stabenow - NO FIXED LINE

There is also my group of HONORABLE MENTIONS; books I found close to excellent, but with one or two quibbles.  They are:

C.J. Box - LONG RANGE
Jack Fredrickson - THE BLACK CAGE
Craig Johnson - NEXT TO LAST STAND
Donna Leon - TRACE ELEMENTS
J.D. Robb - SHADOWS IN DEATH
Michael Robotham - WHEN SHE WAS GOOD
Sheldon M. Siegel - THE DREAMER
Will Thomas - LETHAL PURSUIT
Jeri Westerson - SPITEFUL BONES

Happy Reading,
LJ

  1. This hasn't been a 'normal' sort of year for anyone, has it? I'm not surprised that it impacted your reading. I know it did mine. It's good to see, though, that you found some outstanding readings, and plenty that were good. Let's hope 2021 is a better year...

    1. I know we weren't alone. It seems people either read a lot, or almost nothing. I agree, I hope 2021 is better.

  2. I will look for these. Thank you for your recommendations. Are you going to read "The Thursday Murder Club," by Richard Osman?

    1. Oh, good. You're welcome. I am so very behind with the books on my stack now, I don't know that I'll get to it, unfortunately.
