All the DNF books of 2020

Hello reader! I’m here in a short pause between work and hospital to show you all the books I had to abandon (Did not finish) in 2020.

Here you can find all the best books of 2020, and here the worst books of the last year!

There are only 7 books, how curious, I was convinced there were more…

Anyway, I will try to read again See What I have Done, since the plot is very interesting. It’s the writing style I didn’t like.

And you? Have you finished all the books you began in 2020?

See you next week with the best covers of 2020!!

Worst books of 2020

Hello readers! I’m back today to show you the worst (for me) books that I read in 2020!

You can find all the best books of 2020 here!

I classified under worst the books I rated 1 star or personally hated for some reason. I will write a different post for all the books I DNFed last year.

These are the worst of 2020: we have problematic books (The confectioner’s guild) and works of authors I’ve loved in the past (Odd & True).

We have horror books (Helltown), and we have also a graphic novel (Kill The Granny).

Hope this year will be better for reading too!

Best books of 2020

Hello again readers!

Today I’m here to show you a recap of my favorite books of 2020!

My average rating on Goodreads for 2020 is 2,9/5, so less than 2019… I think I need to better choose my readings, and that’s why I’ve unhauled a lot of books from my TBR.

“Make it pink!” “Make it blue!” The blue has win on all of these covers, right? XD

Wrap Up: December 2020

Hello readers and Happy New Year!

Today I will show you the books I’ve read in December, the next days I will post the best and the worst of the past year.

In December I’ve read a total of 11 books! I’ve completed my Goodreads reading challenge of 120 books, even surpassed it by 10 books, for a total of 130!

Here’s my December reading month:

5 Stars:

Murder in the crypt is the first volume in the historical crime fiction series featuring Captain Redmond and Constable Haze. I’ve loved every single word of it!

Agente 00 Miao Missione Natale is a cute novella featuring Venceslao, the beautiful black cat on the cover. Perfect Christmas reading!

4 stars:

The gift of the animals is a lovely picture book with charming illustrations.

Looking for Winston is the fourth volume in the Adventures of Sophie Mouse, this series is so incredibly cute!

3 stars:

More weird things customers say in bookshops: I just want to express my sympathy to all the booksellers out there who need to deal with these kind of customers.

Gnome for Christmas: I’ve read a lot of Christmas books thanks to the #Christmasathon I’ve participated on Twitter. The cover is lovely, and it’s a cozy mystery full of delicious foods!!

I received a copy of Esme’s wish through Booksirens. Great world-building and funny side characters!

2 stars:

The time travelers has a catch eye cover, but I didn’t like the manners of the two main characters, particularly when they are in the past.

Wintersong has a great prose and it’s perfect for this time of the year, but the romance was… not my cup of tea.

1 star:

I didn’t understand the genre of Il segreto del vicolo della serpe (sorry, it’s not translated!): it was a contemporary, a mystery, a romance? I was confused.

Now I understand that I don’t like books written or set in the North of Europe, and this is not exception. The main character is just… stupid most of the times? Yeah, no thanks.

And this was my reading month, how about yours??
