My Top Reads of 2020 – January to March

Yes it’s that time of year again. Time to share my favourite reads of 2020. Now some people are very disciplined and can get this down to a Top Ten but I just can’t! So instead, I’ve split my reading year up into quarters and will be sharing one post a week in December telling you about my favourites for each quarter.

I’m beginning of course with January to March, to a time when we had no idea what 2020 had in store (thank goodness!). A time when we could still go on holiday (London and Iceland for me), a time when we could go to concerts (Michael Ball and Alfie Boe at the Hydro in Glasgow were fabulous) and a time when we could still be in a room with lots of people and even hug them (that would be my 50th birthday at the beginning of March).

So here are the nine books I have chosen as my favourites for the first three months of the year. Click on the titles to read my reviews.

The First Time I Saw You by Emma Cooper

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

My One True North by Milly Johnson

A Dozen Second Chances by Kate Field

The 24 Hour Cafe by Libby Page

In Five Years by Rebecca Serle

Below The Big Blue Sky by Anna McPartlin
(the publication of this book was delayed due to the pandemic but I read it in March which is why I’ve included it here)

The Silent Treatment by Abbie Greaves

Have you read any of these? Are any of them your favourite reads of the year? Let me know what you think and pop back next Monday to find out my selections for April to June.

  1. In Five Years was a good read and I really must get around to reading American Dirt. This is an excellent way to divide the year up, I too would be struggling to pick a Top 10 and I’m certain I’ve read far fewer books than you! Looking forward to your next quarter,

  2. I bought The Silent Treatment a while ago and have it on my list to read next year so I won’t read your review even though I know there won’t be any spoilers in there. I also have her next book on my Netgalley shelf to read soon.

    1. That next book sounds very intriguing. I have it on my tbr for next year but not requested from Netgalley yet – trying to keep that virtual shelf not too crowded!

  3. That’s what I’ve been trying to do, clear my Netgalley reads so that I can read some books that I’ve bought next year. I just had to remind myself what The Ends of The Earth is about. It does sound interesting and maybe quite sad too.
