3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?
This book was totally out of character for me and something I only picked up because of Believeathon. I adored this one … part folktake, part fantasy, part mystery this book had it all and I’m hoping to read more of the series in 2021.
4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?
#sorrynotsorry for talking about this one so much and forcing my friends and family to read it. I know I’m behind the eight ball with this one, but this book was my number one book of the year.
5. Best series you started in 2020? Best Sequel? Best Series Ender of 2020?
Best Series: The Arizona Vengeance by Sawyer Bennett.

8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year?
This book creeped me out big time (in the best possible way). It made me want to explore more thrillers/mysteries/crime/suspense novels in 2021 for sure.

15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2020?
“Her hair truly did look like an octopus.
It was the way she wore it, he thought. Or maybe the way it wore her. It all sat perched atop her head in that big, inky blob. And no matter how strenuously she pinned it, dark, heavy curls worked loose on all sides, like tentacles.
Of course, it was an entrancing, strangely erotic octopus. Ransom worried this might be how fetishes developed.” — Romancing the Duke, Tessa Dare
16.Shortest & Longest Book You Read In 2020?

The longest book I read was 594 pages long and was The Nightingale by Hannah Kristin,
17. Book That Shocked You The Most
(Because of a plot twist, character death, left you hanging with your mouth wide open, etc.)

(OTP = one true pairing if you aren’t familiar)
Cletus and Jen … So glad they are getting a spin off series. I adored book one.
19. Favorite Non-Romantic Relationship Of The Year
This one is hard because majority of what I read falls into the romance category, but I’m going with a picture book. This relationship between the Grandfather and Grandson made me tear up.
