It’s that time of year! Everyone is sharing their favorite books from 2020, and for the first time in a very long time I have to struggle to pick five from the pile of five-star reviews rather than accept the meager few as my top.
When I made it my goal to read for quality over quantity this year (even though I did give a number and didn’t reach it), I found myself really enjoying reading for pleasure again (who would’ve thought?). This resulted in tossing aside several books to the DNF and TTFN, and diving deep into the ones I was truly enjoying. Several four-, four-and-a-half-, and five-star reads came forth, and it was such a joy! I can look back on my reading year in 2020 fondly.
Top Five Books of 2020
“But Laura,” you say, “there are six books here! Can’t you count?”
Top Five Books of 2020: Born a Crime, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, The Happy Ever After Playlist, Mexican Gothic, and A Darker Shade of Magic make my top most top five of the five-star reviewed titles.
Five other five-star reads include Becoming, Digital Minimalism, The Lost Words, Recommended for You, and The Once and Future Witches.
The Top of the Top Best Book of 2020: The Year of the Witching, solidifying itself as one of my favorite books ever. All the stars to this book. All of them.
And of course, my clients!

Looking forward to another great reading year in 2021!
