In a year of outstanding books to read, I suffered from the malady of so many of my fellow readers, the inability to focus and thus to read. Oh, I did manage to read, but the number of books I read was down, and in a richness of reading year, that hurts. Unfortunately, my reviewing and blogging was negatively affected, too, but I'm up and running with that again. Let's face it. 2020 was not a normal year at all for readers and authors. Virtual book promotion, learning to use Zoom (well, I'm still working on it), authors online book publishing birthdays. But, the reading community, in particular the mystery crime community, is a resilient group who are passionate about their cause, so we have not only survived, we've thrived, gotten closer. Even though my reading count was down, what I read was a constant source of enjoyment. It was hard to narrow down any favorites, because all the books I read were enjoyable. So, my list is long, but it includes the ones I enjoyed the very most. A couple of the books were published in 2019, but the rest are 2020 publications. I will have quite a few more 2020 publications that I will feature in another list after I've read them.
