20 books of 2020



When 2020 was literally a roller coaster ride to many of us, I am sure books were a constant support to all of us throughout this year. Specifically, 2020 for me was completely special, because I stepped out of my comfort zone of rom-com, thriller/mystery and explored more Historical fiction & fantasy fiction.

While I managed to read a total of 86 books this year (thanks to lockdown and work from home), there were some books that I absolutely loved and can not stop recommending them. It was so hard selecting these books, as this year I read some amazing books as well as review copies.

In no particular order, here I present to you all my top 20 books of 2020.
