A Story Of Sorts S1 E11 Favourite Books Read In 2020

I'm back! 

I know I have announced the end of this season countless times... but I forgot to share with you all my favourite reads of the year! 2020 was filled with 5 star reads; it was tough to shorten this list down, so you get 27 titles, out of the 65 I've read this year. 

To learn more about each title head back to my Instagram page @astoryofsorts. 

Season 2 is being prepared as we speak, and I have already recorded a few interesting interviews, which I'm very excited to share with you all. The first episode comes out on the 5th of January, make sure you subscribe to be notified! 

I'll talk to you all again next year!
