Despite everything that has happened last year, I am grateful for many little things. I came closer to reading and in May, I started bookstagram. I am a newbie into this, hence I take inspiration from other cool bookstagramers out here. I noticed them doing wrap-ups of 2020 or their favorites of the year.
Even though I read a handful of books, roughly 15, here are my favorite five books from 2020 – reads.
Poems in Prose by Oscar Wilde
This was my last read of 2020 and I feel so stupid for ignoring Oscar Wilde for so long. My eyes were glued on a page. I read, again and again, one poetry for thousands of time. It was like you love it so much that it starts to hurt. You close your eyes, smile a little, look away and say, ” oh..oh you” with the softest voice you have.
Anxious people By Fredrik Bakman
My year is incomplete without reading Backman. I am willing to walk into his maze-like stories with him and find out about his characters deeply, understand how we all are idiots and how it is all right to be one.
Ikigai by Albert Liebermann and Hector Garcia
I saw many people reading this one and I understand the hype about it. It helped me to simplify the habits I wanted to pick and gave an insight into my dad’s way of thinking. I loved it so much that I gifted one to my grandfather. I am still waiting for his reviews, hope he likes it.
The girl who drank the moon by Kelly Barnhill
I picked this up because the title had a moon in it. I wasn’t expecting much but the story have everything I like, Magic, witches, poems, wood carving, and the moon.
Coraline by Nail Gaiman
Neil is my magician when it comes to writing. I started bookstagram with this one because I wanted to revisit the place where all my nightmares are buried but at the same time, it makes you feel so brave.
Now tell me, what have been your favorites of 2020? It doesn’t have to books.
