This year mysteries, thrillers, and true crime book topped my reading list. The Novel Scares book club forced me out of that comfort zone and introduced me to two of the books on my list-books I never would have selected for myself.
A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones
The Good House by Tananarive Due
Good Night Beautiful by Aimee Molloy
The Nothing Man by Catherine Ryan Howard
The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones
The Adventurer’s Son by Roman Dial
Good Kids, Bad City by Kyle Swenson
Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey
A Promised Land by Barack Obama
Solutions and Other Problems by Allie Brosh
The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
Sweet Murder by Tegan Maher
With the exception of Solutions and Other Problems, I listened to all of these books. The House in the Cerulean Sea was my absolute favorite book of 2020. It was the charming and thoughtful book that I needed during this difficult year.
