I really enjoyed “The Better Liar” by Tanen Jones, and “The Wife Stalker” by Liv Constantine. Both books are very twisty thrillers, just the way I like them.

It’s a tie between The Hollow Gods by A.J. Vrana and The Master of Salt and Bones by Keri Lake. I absolutely loved them. I loved many but those are both number one.

I began the year with The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo By Taylor Jenkins Reid and it was a tough act to follow- I really enjoyed Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey- the audible version is highly recommended.

A Good Marriage and A Solitude of Wolverines because they were really great reads. Also, a new author to enjoy!

My overall favorite 2020 read so far has been Normal People by Sally Rooney.
Also, The Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan absolutely blew me away! It’s so rare a sequel surpasses its predecessor!

The Lost and Found Bookshop by Susan Wiggs. LOVED it!!
