In the first 6 months of 2020, I read a lot of fantasy books. Later I ended up in a fantasy slump but despite that, I have read a few good fantasy books. In this blog post, I talk about the books that I thought were the best of 2020 and why. All these books I gave 5 stars!
The Invisible Life of Addie Larue – V.E Schwab
Let’s begin with one of my favorite reads of 2020 and also my favorite book by this author. This book is completely different than her other books. This book is certainly not for everyone and I can totally understand that some people did not like it. You should not compare this book with her other books since it is such a completely different style.
In my eyes this book is perfect. The writing, the characters, just everything. It reads so smoothly, and the book had my interest the whole time. This is a book that I would re-read some time and that for someone who does not re-read books.
House of Earth and Blood – Sarah J Maas
I read this book at the beginning of the year and this is also my favorite book by this author. The characters are badass, the world building is great and same goes for the writing. Most of the readers thought this book was slow in the beginning but I did not mind since you learned a lot about the world. I can not wait for the second book in this series!
Charmcaster – Sebastien de Castell
This is the third book of the Spellslinger series, and I absolutely adored it. I love the humor in this series, the characters, and the squirrel cat. This is one of my favorite fantasy series and I can highly recommend it.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – J.K Rowling
I know that everyone hates this author and so do I, but I still love the Harry Potter books and the world.
Vicious, A Gathering of Shadows, A Conjuring of Light – V.E Schwab
It is hard not to give a high rating for the V.E Schwab books because I just love them too much. Her writing is lovely, the world building is great, and the characters are amazing. What can I say more? You just need to read her books.
These are all my favorite fantasy books I read in 2020. There are a few more that I gave 5 stars, but they do not belong to my favorites of 2020. It is not a long list because I quite picky when it comes to giving book 5 stars.
Crown of Midnight & Heir of Fire – Sarah J Maas
It took me forever to continue this series, not because it is bad because I obviously love them. I am just so bad at continuing series and finish them. Both books I loved and adored. Hopefully, I can finish this series in 2021!
