  1. Awesome list! Midnight Lullaby made my list too, and I see a few books I just couldn't get to, especially The Boatman's Daughter. It was a really good year!

    1. Yay Midnight Lullaby! I feel like people either really connected with The Boatman's Daughter - or really didn't. I love his writing. It was such a great year.

    1. I highly recommend Where the Woods End! It's such a creepy little story. I read Where the Crawdads Sing at the beginning of the year, and that feels like a lifetime ago!

  23. I see you belong to those readers who can't limit yourself to ten books, either. I always have trouble with that. Glad you also liked "Where the Crawdads" sing, one of my favourite books of the year.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.

  24. I completely forgot about Little Darlings! It's still on my audible credits. I need to read it! Ninth House and Where the Crawdads sing are great, great reads.

    Happy New Year and I do hope that the new year will bring some awesome books along.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow, so many good books here. I need to read The Ninth House, Horrid, Ghost Squad and Blood Countess. Pus a few others. Gee, it makes me wonder what I DID read this year :)

  28. Crawdads made my 2020 list too! And I just put myself on a waitlist for The Boatman’s Daughter, so I’m crossing my fingers I get to read it this year.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!
