My Top 10 Books and Best 9: A Quick Recap and Look Back

As someone who claims herself as an avid reader, I suppose it wouldn't be appropriate to greet a new year without a short walk down bookish lane. For me, 2020 was a surprisingly satisfying year reading-wise: I devoured 74 books in between long working hours and classes while according to Goodreads the total pages I read were 28.697 though it might not be 100% correct as I admittedly dnf one book in the process.

Pictured below are my top ten favorite books in 2020 with no particular order. It's truthfully hard to narrow them down to ten but since the physical books of some other gems I discovered like Crazy Rich Asians and A Man Called Ove are still perched silently on my wish list basket, I decided to pick ten from my non-digital shelves instead.

Obviously, Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff was the first book I took out, followed by Warcross by Marie Lu and Distance Between Us by Kasie West. All in all, I experienced quite various genres last year (I read a handful of fantasy, contemporary, middle-grade, even a few non-fiction and one classic) and it was a pleasure to go through each one of them.

I'm a little bummed out to announce that the ten books I picked up earlier weren't featured in the best nine pictures from my bookstagram page though. But still, I'm super thankful for another awesome year in the community. Not only that I managed to make new friends with a bunch of people and did a collab with several of them, but I was also chosen as a rep for three shops I very much adore and the experience certainly rocks.

Without further ado, I now present to you the nine most-liked pictures on my page:
