Top 5 Best Books of 2020

This is my last post of 2020, and I’ve saved the best for last! My picks for best books of 2020. This was not hard for me to choose at all, I loved all of these books and want to recommend them to you!

5. Regretting You by Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover’s books are usually family drama/romance type books with some kind of twist. They aren’t my usual thrillers but I still love them. This one was no exception. It is about a woman who suddenly loses her husband in a car accident, and has a teenage daughter that she has to raise alone. Her and the daughter don’t get along too well, and she begins to find out secrets about her husband along the way.

4. Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

This book was so popular this year! It seems like everyone read it. It was a coming-of-age book about a girl who lived alone in a swamp, and about the events leading up to her living there alone. There was also a kind of murder mystery aspect to it. I could really see this book being made into a movie.

3. The Breakdown by B.A. Paris

This book is about a woman named Cass, who is driving late at night, in the rain, and through the woods. She passes by a stopped car and sees a woman inside who just stares at her. Later after arriving home, she hears that the woman she saw in the car has been murdered. She doesn’t want to tell her husband, because he didn’t want her taking that way home in the first place. She cannot stop thinking about the woman, and weird things start happening, she feels like she is being watched and also loses her memory.

This book totally surprised me at the end with its twist and I really love the books from this author. They are always suspenseful and good.

2. The Lost Man by Jane Harper

This book was really good! It was about two grown brothers who live on big sprawling properties in the outback. They find their third brother dead near an old stockman’s grave landmark. The whole book is them trying to figure out what happened to him, and what was going wrong in his life. There are some twists and turns along the way.

1. Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson

This was my top book of 2020! Of course, a thriller with a huge twist! A girl named Hen and her husband move into a new house and go to meet their new neighbors. At their house, she sees a trophy with a name on it that she recognizes from researching a murder case that she used to be obsessed with. Something about her new neighbor seems off to her, and she wants to get to the bottom of it. This book was so good and had a big twist at the end! Loved it.

That’s it for my Top 5 Books of 2020! I look forward to reading some good ones in 2021.
