I’m giving Jake credit for this diversion. His Best of…post is something we should all feel welcome to do. The very fact that we made through 2020 deserves a celebration. Would you like to celebrate by creating your own Best of 2020 Books post? Great! We have some suggestions that will make your post easier on the reader’s eye.
First, book titles should be italicized.
The most viewed review post of 2020 was Sophia’s review of The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes.
Second, lists should have bullet points.
Rounding out the top 5 viewed posts of 2020:
- Untamed by Glennon Doyle – reviewed by randirock
- A Brotherhood Betrayed: The Man Behind the Rise and Fall of Murder, Inc. by Michael Cannell – reviewed by Jake
- Frankenstein; Or, the Modern Prometheus by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley – reviewed by KimMiE”
- Imbeciles by Adam Cohen – reviewed by octothorp
Third, make sure you select “no”
Fourth, you don’t have to create a post, you can leave us your best of 2020 books list in the comments.
If you haven’t already, check out the Best and Worst of Cannonball Read 12 post that MsWas put together last week.
My 2020 List of Authors Who Got Me Through the Year
I read some really great books this year and rather than telling you about the best/worst, I’m going to list a few authors to whom I owe thanks for creating the books that kept me reading:
- Jackie Lau – I read and reread everything the Canadian romance author has published under this pen name. She is my comfort read
- C.L. Polk – I recommended The Midnight Bargain to more people than any other book.
- Olivia Dade – Between her books and online presence, she has become one of my favorite people who doesn’t actually know who I am.
- Martha Wells – I delight in everyone of your Murderbot reviews, even if I don’t comment.
- Skye Kilaen – This year I discovered a local writer who writes f/f romance, contemporary and science fiction. Her voice is so grounded and compassionate.
- Tasha L. Harrison – Also new to me, she writes the swoooniest filthy romances.
- Milla Vane – She plugs right into my id (or is it my ego?)
- Suleikha Snyder – Face sitting with radical hope.
- Eli Wray – An end of year surprise! Wray writes about bodies and identities with such a deep understanding and enormous compassion
- Katrina Jackson – I am still working on my Katrina Jackson round up and hope to have it posted tonight.
And finally, if you want to know your most viewed reviews for 2020, let me know in the comments (with your Cannonball name) and I will look it up for you.
Thank you so much for being such an amazing community. I wouldn’t have made it with as much sanity as I have without you.
