I made a conscious decision not to make a top-ten list, and then my faves came out to ten! There were a couple of other ones that I considered, but these are the ones that jumped off my reading list. Half of them came out this year, and none of them are more than a few years old.

Actually, I'm halfway through one now that has been well-reviewed, and I'll probably get through The Glass Hotel before the end of the year, so I may have to adjust this later.

I may write about Nelly Dean and Longbourne for another post. I wasn't keeping this blog then, and they were so good.

I was interested to see that fantasy and sci-fi weren't more than half this list. I sometimes feel that I'm in a bit of a genre rut, but I branched out this year!

It was a good reading year. So many great books! Looking forward to 2021!
