The Best 20 Books of 2020

My favourite reads of 2020

No particular order.

A couple of my favourites – Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe for its well sourced but little-known Indigenous accomplishments; Eleanor Oliphant is Infinitely Fine- of all the novels from last year that were underpinned by characters and their personal struggles, this, and its ending, has stayed with me the most; as well as about 35 of the 42 I managed to challenge my brain with this year. 😃
