  1. Yay some of my favs are in your list too! But so hard for me to pick 10! I’m probably gonna wait for an ebook offer for Pan’s Labryinth! 😊 you’ve got a great list here, NS! And here’s to more great books in 2020!! HAPPY NEW YEAR, my friend!

    1. I didn’t put too much thought into choosing a top 10, it was easy πŸ™‚ Pan’s Labyrinth was a special read which I had an e-arc for. Thanks Jee, this is going to be a great year for books I’m sure, and I wish you a happy new year filled with joy and books β™₯

  2. Awesome list! I loved daisy jones, 1984, a monster calls and haunting of hill house- which are all the ones I’ve read! Really want to check out light keeper, library book and pan’s labyrinth as well.

    1. Thanks! I appreciate you catching up with all my posts πŸ˜‰
      Those books do seem to be very popular. The Light Keeper is well worth checking out, I wouldn’t even have known about it but I was sent a surprise ARC. The Library Book is a must read, Pan’s Labyrinth too πŸ™‚

    1. I was really impressed by the book. My cats like all books, especially library books (which this one is).
