This prompt actually makes me really glad that I have a way to track my favorite book every month, since that is going to help me figure out the majority of the books to include on this list. Do you know how HARD it is to pick what my favorite book is each month? It was the hardest darn thing ever! But I did it, and I plan on doing it again next year just in case there’s another prompt like this in 2021!
So since I already have a photo of what my favorite books were for 2020 – with the exception of December and the first four months of the year when I didn’t have a reading journal – I’m going to share it with you here.
Now for the rest of my picks.
-Dating Makes Perfect by Pintip Dunn
You wanna know just how much I loved this book? Just enjoy my full post about it here.
-Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
Listening to this audiobook gave me all kinds of feelings and emotions that I just really needed to let out, you know? I’m really glad that I listened to it because that kind of raw emotion and pain and anger that both Yahaira and Comino feel throughout the entire story. It gave me chills.
-Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron
I remember reading this one in almost a whole day or less because I was so intrigued with how this story went. Kalynn really brought the whole mythos of Cinderella into the limelight that made me think about how messed up the original storyline really was. I loved the aspects that she took from what we already know about Cinderella and added so much more detail and story to what we have today. I can’t wait to read Kalynn’s next novel!
Whoo! That was hard you know?! How can I only pick 10 for the year when the majority of the books that I read this year were freaking amazing?
But somehow I did it, and this is what the list came out to be. But as far as what my favorite book is for December… that’s still a mystery until January 1st.

Clap When You Land is so, so good. And the audiobook version sounds like it’s amazing, with all the raw emotion!!
And you’re right — Cinderella is Dead does so many interesting things with the original story; Kalynn Bayron is so talented!
Thank you for sharing! I love seeing everyone’s faves from this year. 🙂
Great list! I can’t wait to read Legendborn and Raybearer!
Great list! I just downloaded Cinderalla Is Dead and can’t wait to read it. Here’s the LINK to my post in case you want to drop by later. Have a great reading week!❤️️😍
I had so much fun with You Should See Me In a Crown and I’m currently still in the middle of Raybearer and I’m loving it! 😊✨
I really ought to read Clap When You Land sometime. It sounds so good.
I love how you keep track of your favorite book each month! That’s a great, but difficult, practice! I am excited that Forest of Souls is on your list. I’ve been wanting to read that one, but have heard a mixed bag of reviews. Looking forward to reading it now!
Great list! I’ve seen so many rave reviews for Legendborn, I need to read it asap. I love the idea of a reading journal where you store your favourite book of each month, too!
Yasss to so many of these! I loved Legendborn, Raybearer & Forest of Souls, and i think I’ll be adding one of two to my tbr ☺️
Cinderella Is Dead was on my list this week too!

Fab list, Leelynn! All of these are still on my TBR (welp) but I’m really looking forward to giving them a try. I’ve heard amazing things about so many of them!
I keep hearing rave reviews about Clap When You Land. Even though I don’t normally listen to audiobooks, it sounds like that version works well for this one!

Lovely list! ❤️I read I Love you So Mochi randomly for the Popsugar reading challenge, and I was pleasantly surprised about how much I enjoyed it! Also, I loved You Should See Me in a Crown- that book was amazing!
Wonderful list Leelynn! I’m hoping to read Clap When You Land this year and I’ve really been wanting to read more retellings, so there’s much excitement for Cinderella Is Dead too! Happy 2021 💗
