Favourite Reads of 2020

The Top Ten Tuesday weekly meme is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl


Happy 2021, wishing you a year filled of happiness, great reading, great health, peace, love and success.

It has been over a year that I have blogged but I miss having somewhere to look back at my reviews and most of all getting amazing recommendations from you.  I have to start networking again to see who is still reviewing, old blogging friends and especially in the Thriller and Suspense genre.  I hope everyone is well.

My Favourite Reads of 2020

I was happy to get back into reading how I loved and most of my reads are still a solid 4 star which is great but I only have a Top 5 of 4 1/2 and 5 star reads.


Little Fires Everywhere by Celese Ng - 5 star 

Hands down, my favourite read of the year so far. I loved it because it had a flair of my favourite genre, psychological domestic thriller. Amazing characters. I went into it blind, I just knew everyone said to watch the series. I love reading so I knew I had to read it first.


The Light we Lost by Jill Santopolo - 5 star

Do you remember your first love? Has it impacted your whole life or just a memory?
I loved this book. First love, memories, decisions, moving on with your first love always in your heart and back of your head. If you haven't experienced this kind of love I think you will hate this book and think Lucy is selfish as she does have a beautiful family with her husband.
There were lots of reflections for me. This is not a romance novel. I think it will be a good Book club read.
If you loved The Notebook and Me Before You, I highly recommend.



Killman Creek (2nd book in series) by Rachel Caine - 4 1/2 stars



My Sister, The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite- 4 1/2 stars



Home Body by Rupi Kaur - 4 1/2 stars


4 stars Honorary Mentions as a Top Ten list are:
- Woman on the Edge by Samantha M. Bailey
- Untamed by Glennon Doyle
- Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger
- More Myself by Alicia Keys
- My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

    2. I’m so excited my broken Marriage has been restored. “We recently made up, even though it was difficult. It’s been more than a month now, and everything feels like it’s returned to normal. He has began to treat me better, and it’s been a healing process for both of us. The nightmare that had lasted for almost 2 years before we broke up is finally over. It’s like we fell in love all over again! We’ve both put the past behind us, and are trying to move forward – and for the first time in a long time, the future looks a lot brighter. I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Great! It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished. Thank you Dr Great for saving my broken Marriage and brought my husband back to me!”. Me and my husband are living together happily again..

  14. Get ex back | fix broken relationship.
    I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster dr unity. My name is Emily Sarah am from Tx,USA. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..Here his contact..WhatsApp him: +2348055361568 ,

  15. I want to share my experience on how my marriage was saved by a great spell caster Dr. Todd. I was married for 4years with 3 kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me cause i loved her with all my heart and didn't  to lose her but everything just didn't work out, she moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out.. I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice... He did special prayers and used powerful magic Within 24 hour. Immediately after he rounded up his spell casting for me, she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our third child. Thank you so much sir for the kind help. Contact Dr. Todd at manifestspellcast@gmail.com https://manifestspellcast.wordpress.com

  20. Imagine becoming vastly wealthy overnight. Being a winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Mavis Wanczyck from Chicopee, Massachusetts, the famous PowerBall lottery winner of $758 million (£591m) in 2017. I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if i told you that i did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that Doctor Odunga actually made me wealthy overnight. If you want to have your chance of winning and becoming very wealthy just like me, contact Doctor Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR WHATSAPP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. Thanks for Reading and hope to see you at the top

  22. I won $57,000,000(Fifty Seven Million Dollars) in the powerball lottery, I took an advice from someone who talked about this great spell caster called Dr. Kumar the person placed a testimony on a blog thanking Dr Kumar on how he helped him win the lottery by sending him the winning number, i was curious and i thought it was all joke not until i contacted this spell caster to know for myself how this work cause i have spend a lot buying tickets and i have never win anything. I contacted him and he told me the necessary thing that need to be done and i did it and he told me to wait for 2days he will cast the spell on the winning numbers and send them to me to play and truly he gave me the winning numbers to play the lottery which i did, Can you believe my name was the first among winners. He told me (my son all i need you to do for me is make sure that you share this testimony to others so that they can also win the lottery . So that is why i am sharing this testimony with you that if you want to win the lottery this is the way online tips can not help you Dr Kumar is the only answer to that your problem of winning the lottery. Contact Dr kumar today and win the lottery like me Dr Kumar email is SPELLCASTTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM or WhatsApp +2347051705853

  24. My boyfriend said he was tired of our relationship and needs a breakup, he started avoiding me, His attitude was killing me slowly so I did a research on the internet seeking help. There I saw testimonies of how lord Bubuza helped reunite couples with his spell and how he gave lottery winning numbers to people and helped them win a lottery so I immediately sent him a text: +1 984 240 7211 seeking help. He responded. He promised to help me get my boyfriend back with his spell, I did as he instructed and he casted the spell. It was like a dream because 16 hours after the spell was casted my boyfriend came back begging me on his knees to forgive and accept him back. I am so excited and now I believe Lord Bubuza is a God on Earth. Are you heart broken? Do you need help to win a lottery ? Contact Lord Bubuza via Call/text/whatsapp: +1 984 240 7211 or email: lordbubuzamiraclework @ hotmail . com

  29. My wife of 4 years broke up with me because I was broke but I never told her I was playing the lottery because I wanted to surprise her whenever I win a huge amount. I was so heart broken and I decided to seek help from friends and family before I saw a post of RUTH BREEN about a man called LORD ZAKUZA saying how he helped her win a lottery worth ONE MILLION DOLLARS. I contacted Lord Zakuza via WhatsApp  +1 740-573-9483 and explained my situation to him. He spoke to me like a father and told me he was going to prepare a spell for me to get my wife back and also give me numbers & where to play the lottery. I did everything he asked of me and within 48 hours, my wife came back to me seeking forgiveness and I was called 4 days after that I was the winner of 383 MILLION DOLLARS from the lottery I played. I have never seen such a miracle in my life. No matter what you are going through, there's always a solution.

I won $739,342,000 Million dollars with the help of lord Bubuza winning numbers, I have been playing lottery games for years and I have never been lucky but my Friend in the office won 496,800.000 million dollars and resigned from work so I beg him for help and he said lord Bubuza predicted his winning after casting a spell and gave him the winning number to play and he won so I spoke to lord Bubuza on WhatsApp: +1 984 240 7211 for help. He responded and said a reading had to be done and a spell cast to reveal my SIX winning numbers, I provided his requirements for the casting of the spell. After casting the spell, he gave me SIX numbers and told me when and where to play. I did as instructed and 24 hours later, I got a call that I won $739,342,000 million dollars, I thought it was a joke until i saw $739,342,000 Million dollars on my bank account.
