Best books I’ve read so far (2020)

Hello readers! I began, a couple of weeks ago, to write the Mid-Year freak out book tag, but then I decided to change it to a simple best/worst books I’ve read so far, mostly because I’m not the tyoe of reader to know every single release of the year, and because I totally forgot nearly all the characters names of the books I’ve read.

So there you can find all the magnificent books I’ve read in the first half of 2020.

A lot of blue in those covers! We have historical fiction, middle grade, non-fiction. I’m gklad to have found new favorite authors (like Carl Ashmore) and to have the possibility to talk about these underrated titles.

And you, have you read great books during these months? Tell me in the comments!

Books with the highest rating on my TBR

Hello readers!

Do you remember my post with the books with the lowest rating on my TBR?

I really appreciated the interest you showed with that post, so today I’m here to show you the 5 books with the highest rating on GR that are already on my Owned TBR!

alto rating

Alfie Brown: the boy with purple eyes: only 16 ratings on this fantasy/middle grade book that I received for free through Instafreebie. Seems interesting, right?

The Godgame collection: I bought it on Amazon for 0,99€. It has only 4 ratings but they are all super positive!

The electrical menagerie: I bought it last week! Give me a good steampunk/historical fiction book and I’m a happy reader!

The Hobbit Chronicles V: The battle of the five armies Art & design: the last book in this series that I own. I’m still not over the ending of the battle of the five armies.

The hollows: a detective who’s searching for a monster in London in 1860? I’m in.

 

And these are the five books with the highest rating that I need to read! Have you read one or more of these books?

What’s the book with the highest rating on your TBR?

I completed 18 and reviewed 18 books for The Backlist reader challenge. I hope to reach 30 books for the end of the year.

Mount TBR

My goal for the Mount TBR is Mt. Vancouver, with 36 books, and I’m nearly there because I’ve read 29 books for this challenge. I will try to upgrade my climbing to Mt. Ararat (48 books). I really need to read all the old books on my TBR!

Books with the lowest rating on my TBR

Hello readers! Today I’m here to show you the books on my TBR with the lowest rating, and to answer an important question: Am I still interested in reading it?

Here are the books:

basso rating

Unusually quiet people: I found it on Amazon for free a couple of years ago. I don’t know, I like the creepy cover, what do you think?

Son Goku: well, that’s a surprise. Son Goku it’s the original (or a part) of the legend of Saiyuki, the journey to the west, and I added it because I’m obsessed with the Kazuya Minekura’s manga series.

Il vangelo dei vampiri (beware the leaven): I decided to say bye bye to this book. It has a really low rating, I’m not interested in vampire stories anymore, and my pet rats have ruined the cover. Oh well, I can survive without this book.

The battle of life: this is Dickens. And I already own a physical copy. It’s just 100 pages long, so I can manage it.

Zombie boy: press start: I received it for free through Instafreebie. It doesn’t sound that bad, plus I need a Z title for my A to Z reading challenge.

 

What are you thinking of these books?

Have you read some of them? Do you have books on your TBR with a lower rating than these?
