Hi there! This year, I’ve decided to keep track of what books I’ve been reading and provide you with some recommendations. I LOVE to read, and I’ve read a variety of books ranging from self-help to thriller to romance in 2020. Reading has been keeping me sane while in quarantine. Don’t worry; I won’t reveal any spoilers!

Here’s a list of what I’ve read so far:

WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING – DELIA OWENS

This book is on Reese Witherspoon’s book club list, so you know that it has to be good! Where the Crawdads Sing is about Kya Clark who is nicknamed the “Marsh Girl” since she has survived in the North Carolina marsh for years by herself. A man named Chase Andrews is found dead in the marsh, and all eyes turn to the “Marsh Girl.” You’ll have to find out for yourself what really happened… This is a story of Kya’s relentless survival, young love, and her true connection to nature. It’s probably my favorite book that I read this year (so far) and I will recommend it until the day I die.

WHEN WE BELIEVED IN MERMAIDS – BARBARA O’NEAL

Okay, this might be a close contender to my favorite book I’ve read this year! When We Believed in Mermaids is a tale about two sisters journeys; Josie, who is pretending to be dead and Kit, who is trying to find her. Kit sees her older sister, Josie, on TV and thinks she’s going crazy… Josie was supposedly dead from a terrorist attack, but Kit knows that that was her sister. Kit travels from California to New Zealand on a mission to find her, and has to battle past memories, letting down her guard, and her confusing emotions towards her sister. When We Believed in Mermaids taught me the importance of telling the truth, and trusting your family during hard times.

THE CONSPIRACY OF US SERIES – MAGGIE HALL

#1: THE CONSPIRACY OF US

#2: MAP OF FATES

#3: THE ENDS OF THE WORLD

I’ve read the first two books in this series already, and I’m about to start the third one. These books were really easy reads and it definitely is a YA book, but it contains history, romance, and self-discovery that was really enjoyable. The Conspiracy of Us is about Avery West, a girl with purple eyes, who has her family’s history revealed to her in an unexpected way. Her family comes from a secret society called “The Circle,” and Avery has to uncover some clues from Paris, France to Istanbul, Turkey. There’s also a love triangle situation that comes up, and she has to decide between two men who want to protect her. Excited to finish the series soon!

I never took psychology in high school, so I’m always fascinated by reading about how our minds work. BJ Fogg gave great tips on how to start with tiny habits in order for them to grow and eventually change your life. I also recommend Malcolm Gladwell’s books if you’re interested in these types of books too!

FEAR THE WORST – LINWOOD BARCLAY

Fear the Worst is a parent’s worst nightmare. Tim’s daughter, Sydney, disappears into thin air, and the police aren’t helping out. Tim has to take matters into his own hands, and decides to find his daughter himself. This thrilling book will have you questioning what happened to Sydney, and if Tim can really find her.

THE LAST ORACLE – JAMES ROLLINS

When I read James Rollins’ books, it feels like I’m watching a movie as I’m reading. His books are extremely detailed with history intertwined. A group known as the Jasons have found a way to alter autistic children who exhibit various talents and desire to create peace throughout the world. However, their way is destructive and unethical. Read The Last Oracle for an adventurous story featuring the bond between a dad and his daughter!
