I read 68 books this year (and counting). Of those, 10 works stand out in my mind as being particularly great reads. These are the books that stayed with me, made me think back on them long after I’d finished them. They are the books I’m telling my friends about.
Here they are, in no particular order and with no regard to publication date. The best books I read in 2020:
Good Morning, Midnight
The Song of Achilles
The Only Good Indians
The Lager Queen of Minnesota
How to Be an Antiracist
The Dragons, the Giant, the Women: A Memoir
by Wayétu Moore
Daisy Jones & The Six
The Second Home
How to Disappear: Notes on Invisibility in a Time of Transparency
by Akiko Busch
Would love to hear what you loved this year. Drop some titles in the comments below.
