#BestReadsOf2020 : Best debut novel

Happy Tuesday friends!⁠ ⁠

This is day 22 of our Best Reads of 2020! Only two more days and we’ll be at Christmas Eve!⁠ ⁠

I know I have a lot to catch up with but today was my last day at work before a break and I ahd more than 800 mails to read and clean!

Today in our #Best ReadsOf2020 we are featuring our best debut novel read this year!⁠

⁠ I have two favorites for you:⁠ ⁠

💦 The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary⁠ ⁠

I first read the Switch and was so enamored that I went back and read her first work The Flatshare!⁠ ⁠

This story relies heavily on its amazing characters.⁠ Tiffy and Leon are like the sun and the moon.⁠ Leon would be the moon and he is feeling SO MUCH!⁠ ⁠

Beth delivers charming and smart stories. With the help of quirky characters, she makes you think about serious topics like abuse and death all with a keen eye for human nature, its flaws and extraordinary resilience too.⁠ ⁠

You will laugh. You will swoon. You will cry. You will rage too. But above all else, you will root for Tiffy and Leon’s love story.⁠ ⁠

 

⁠ 💦 Thorn by Intisar Khanani⁠ ⁠

I chose to listen to the audiobook .⁠ Listening to that slow/steady paced story felt soothing, compelling and magical. A unique tale that I recommend wholeheartedly if you are looking for something different from the fast paced and action-packed magical stories.⁠ ⁠

“Which of us has not made mistakes when faced with more than we can handle?”⁠ ― Intisar Khanani, Thorn
