Top Ten Fiction and Non-Fiction Books Fourth Quarter 2020

Top Ten Fiction and Non-Fiction Books Fourth Quarter 2020

It has been a different year for us all. This year I read about 15% fewer books than my average over the last three years. And even a bigger drop if you look at this quarter. But since reading and reviewing books is my hobby, I am grateful to have been able to read 317 books this year. And 65 of them this quarter. Of those 65 read 53 received 5/5 stars. And 53 were first time reads. And out of those 46 there were 34 fiction and 12 non-fiction. Part of the imbalance is due to reading most days with my youngest two and they have reached the point where they are reading much faster. 

Without further ado or preamble here is my top ten fiction and non-fiction books of the fourth quarter of 2020.

Top Ten Non-Fiction Books:
8. Books by William Lawson

Bonus:

Top Ten Fiction Books:
3. Jim Sano - Father Tom Fitzpatrick Series
5. Corinna Turner’s Books:
7. Karina Fabian’s books:
8. Short fiction by Cedar Sanderson

Bonus:
Arthur Slade Dragon Assassins
Downfall

My reading has been up over each of the last few years. I attribute part of it to Brandon Vogt’s course Read More Books Now, removing all games but 1 brain game from my devices. And I was commuting to work on a bus and read on the bus every day. But being 2020 everything is topsy-turvy. I read less books this year. But I managed to write reviews for all books read for the first time. 

Note: I do not include books that have been read in previous years and were reread this year in my top ten lists, they are in the bonus section. It was no easy task making this quarter. But if you want more options check out my favorite books year by year list
