In true procrastination form, I'm finally declaring my top 25 reads of 2020. The year wasn't good for much else, but my reading certainly didn't suffer. Most surprising was what took the top spot: this is the first time I've had a non-fiction #1 pick. Carolyn Forché's 'What You Have Heard Is True' is unlike any memoir I've ever read. It was a strong year for non-fiction reads overall, in spite of my craving for fictional escapes more than ever.

batsy Ooh! Great list. Yay Bunny, Bloody Chamber, Fever Dream, Jane Eyre, My Name is Red! 13mo

#Favs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Thank you for the tagging me @sace and @readordierachel , sorry i'm so late to do this.

I'm not great at picking favorites but here are three books i can currently think of.

1. Anne of Green Gables
2. The Age Of Innocence
3. Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race.

Sace That's exactly how I am about favorites...it's whatever books popped into my head when asked. Also, I've been meaning to read #3 forever. 2y
sudi @Sace haha it's always so difficult to choose, I love so many of them that whenever I have to choose there is a good chance of my brain short-circuiting 😂. It was such a good read, I definitely learned a lot from it. 2y
Sace "Short-circuiting" is a perfect description! 2y

This was incredibly hard, so I decided to just go with my top 3 reads so far in 2020 😉 Thanks for the tag @batsy 😘

1. The Notebook Trilogy by Agota Kristof
2. The Handmaid‘s Tale by Margaret Atwood
3. The one and only Harry Potter (started a reread during this pandemic)

#Favs

batsy Both 1 and 2 are on my TBR! Harry Potter is such a comfort read 💜 2y
MySharonaK The notebook is such a crazy book. You finish it looking like this: 😮 2y
hilded @MySharonaK Yeah, it was crazy. I didn‘t know that much about it before diving in, it completely surprised me. Not like anything I‘ve read before! I had to start book 2 immediately. 2y
See All 15 Comments
hilded @batsy Then you have some gems coming your way 💜 The Notebook trilogy is such an underestimated book/series. Kristof truly deserves more praise. I didn‘t know of its exsistence until some clever publisher here decided they wanted to make a new and modern translation last year, I sincerely thank him for that. 2y
batsy @hilded I'm looking forward to giving it the attention it deserves 🙂 I too hadn't heard about the series until I read about it on twitter. 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘ve never read HP 🙈 2y
eeclayton @hilded @batsy I read the first book in the trilogy. It was really good but it was also so intense that I couldn't get myself to continue. 2y
MySharonaK @hilded me too! I‘ve read all three on the same day cause I had to! I think I can still say it‘s one of the most surprising and different books I‘ve ever read. 2y
hilded @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Oh, wow - really?!? Then you have some magical hours ahead of you if you ever decide to read it 🤩🙌🏻 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I love the Notebook ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
hilded @eeclayton It was truly intense indeed. @MySharonaK I couldn‘t stop reading either, it was like a trainwreck, just had to keep going. It‘s been a long time since I‘ve been so engrossed in a book. I haven‘t read number 3 yet, the new translation is being released later this year. But I‘m very close to cave in and just borrow the old translation at the library. 2y
MySharonaK @hilded oh I can‘t wait to hear what you think of the third! I think you‘re going to be 😮 after the third one as well 2y
hilded @MySharonaK Hope I get some answers in addition to this face 😯, lol. I will let you know as soon as I finish it! 2y
hilded @MySharonaK Hi! Long time since we had this conversation, but just wanted to let you know I finally read the last one in the trilogy. And you were right, I did indeed end up with this face 😯, lol. Magnificent series as a whole for sure, even though the first caught me most ‘off guard‘. 1y
MySharonaK @hilded thank you for writing about it I‘m so happy you got to finish the trilogy! I agree with you about the first one, honestly I still think about those books and it‘s been ages since I‘ve read them ❤️ 1y

Susannah @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I love Adele. I was lucky enough to see her in concert on her most recent tour, and she was amazing. And such a hoot! 3y
Susannah @merelybookish It took me until I was well into adulthood to get into Joni Mitchell, but I‘m so glad I finally did. Blue is such an awesome album. Every bit of it. 3y
Susannah @EricaReads Isn‘t Ella Fitzgerald wonderful? I don‘t think I could pick just one of her songs. Too much (TOO MUCH!) to narrow down. 3y
Susannah @hissingpotatoes I don‘t know “The Bard‘s Song.” I need to look it up. 3y
Susannah @Linear That sounds fascinating! I know it‘ll be a YouTube rabbit hole. 😁 3y

It's @AndreaReads Litsyversary, and she's kind enough to celebrate with us by hosting a giveaway where we talk about our favorite thing about Litsy.

I can't pick! So I cheated a bit. Truth is, Litsy is my favorite thing! And that's because of all of you. And all of these things. I love the community, I love my fellow introverts, librarians, and book lovers in general.

**Finished in comments**

tonyahoswalt I love finding out about new books. I love joining these buddy reads for books I love and books I've been meaning to read but never got around to. Litsy is my favorite. I don't use Instagram as much anymore, and I just breeze through Facebook very quickly. But Litsy, this has become home. 4y

DivaDiane It is a wonderful thing! It‘s been a while since I read any classics, but there are a few by Woolf that I haven‘t read yet (the one you just read, her first novel and The Waves and Flush), so maybe I should crack one of them open. 4y
Moray_Reads @DivaDiane I haven't read Flush but I loved the Waves. I read her first several years ago and didn't love it *gasp* but now I think it was probably me rather than her 4y
Moray_Reads @saresmoore with Shishkin is start with The Light and the Dark and then Maidenhair. Sadly not much of his work has been translated into English, I've been waiting for Taking Izmail for three years but they keep putting back the publication date 4y

SilversReviews @Amabear Great story line, setting, characters. 4y
SilversReviews @rachelk 😍 The Forgotten Garden isn't the same as Shadow in terms of subject, but it is really good. All of her books are good. 4y
Jess7 Yes - I love Kate Morton! I have only read #TheLakeHouse so far, but her writing is truly beautiful! 4y
SilversReviews @Jess7 It is. Loved The Lake House too. 4y

1. Print or ebook. I can‘t concentrate on audiobooks.
2. Couch, on the left side
3. Tea, and I often read while eating my meals
4. Mostly one, but not always
5. All the time!

CassiM Hahaha ☺ I can't do audiobooks either for the same reason! And certainly not while doing other things. 😯 4y

monalyisha I have a new/rediscovered obsession with chocolate milk. Omg. I went to this Airbnb in Vermont & there was local, farm-fresh chocolate milk waiting for me in the fridge & ever since then I‘ve been on a quest to find a glass that good again... 4y

Copying from @Cinfhen my fav 17 of 17 (unless I read a great one in the next 4 days 😁) not in any particular order because I‘d be there forever....

Cinfhen Such a great list!!! I took a screenshot because I haven't read all your choices and want to get suggestions....like I need to add more books 🙄 4y
Cinfhen How many are chunkys??? 4y
Cinfhen I can eliminate those!😘 4y

TrishB @Cinfhen 😂 I think you can probably rule out Wrath and Assassin‘s Fate as they‘re massive and last in a fantasy series so not to be read without others first! Not sure you‘re a SKing fan? Sleeping Beauties is big and La Belle Sauvage is - but again you would have to read others first. I‘m always adding to my lists.... 4y
batsy Great list, so many that I want to read 👍 4y
Kalalalatja I see a lot of my favourites on that list 👏👏 4y
ElishaLovesBooks Looks like a great list! I‘ve only read two- A List of Cages and Pachinko and loved them both! 4y
Andrew65 A great list. 4y
