Welcome back friends, in this post we will talk about my top 10 picks of 55 books I’ve read this year. If you are wondering what books I’ve read in 2020 go my 2020 BOOK READING CHALLENGE ON GOODREADS.
I will not mention all 55 books I’ve read this year because I don’t want to waste your time if you’re not interested in the remining 45 books which didn’t get the place on this list.
“The outsider” by Stephen King
An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.
I read this book at the beginning at of 2020, and I give it 5 / 5 stars, which doesn’t happen a lot in my case.
If you are triggered by child rape and child murder than maybe don’t read this book.
Writing style is on a high level, the story keeps you on the edge and it keeps you guessing all the way to the last word. It is also very moody and dark.
“Rich dad, poor dad” by Robert Kiyosaki
Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert’s story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his “rich dad” — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
I personally read this book in 3 days, and I give it 5 / 5. And it made me interested in stocks and investing.
This book makes you think and educate you how important it is to learn about economy and money work. It may show you what you may do if you actually want to have a little more freedom in your economy.

“Greenlights” by Matthew McConaughey
Greenlights is a book by American actor Matthew McConaughey. It was written by Matthew McConaughey and it is all about his process of becoming the person he is today. In this book you will find some poems and inspirational quotes written by Matthew McConaughey. As well as you will see some pictures from different points of his life.
This book deserves the hype which it got. high expectations which you might have for this book are worth it. The storytelling which Matthew McConaughey give us in this book is brilliant.
I give this book 5 / 5.
“Blaze” by Richard Bachman / Stephen King
Once upon a time, a fellow named Richard Bachman wrote Blaze on an Olivetti typewriter, then turned the machine over to Stephen King, who used it to write Carrie. Clayton Blaisdell, Jr., was always a small-time delinquent. None too bright either, thanks to the beatings he got as a kid. Then Blaze met George Rackley, a seasoned pro with a hundred cons and one big idea. The kidnapping should go off without a hitch, with George as the brains behind their dangerous scheme. But there’s only one problem: by the time the deal goes down, Blaze’s partner in crime is dead. Or is he?
The whole story in this book is just wow. It’s so unique and amazing. The characters in this are very few of them. There were times while reading when it feels like you are reading something similar to “You” by Caroline Kepnes.
I read this book in 2 days and I give it 4,5 / 5
“Becoming” by Michelle Obama
In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same
One of the best biographies out there. If you had admired her before reading this book you will admire here even more after reading this book. The hype about this book is understandable, and it is defiantly worth the cash and time you will use on this book.
I read this book in 2 weeks, and I give it 5 / 5
“Christine” by Stephen King
Arnie, a nerdy high school student, and his friend Dennis notice a dilapidated 1958 Plymouth Fury being sold by an elderly man with a back brace, Roland D. LeBay, who named the car “Christine”. Despite Dennis’ reservations, Arnie buys Christine for $250. While Arnie finishes the paperwork, Dennis sits inside Christine and has a vision of the car and the surroundings as they existed when the car was new, 20 years earlier. Frightened, Dennis decides he dislikes Christine. Arnie brings Christine to a do-it-yourself garage run by Will Darnell, suspected of using the garage as a front for illicit operations. As Arnie restores the car, he stops wearing his glasses and his acne clears up, but he also becomes withdrawn, humorless and cynical. When LeBay dies, Dennis meets his younger brother, George, who reveals LeBay’s history of anger and violent behavior. George reveals that LeBay’s young daughter choked to death on a hamburger in the back seat of the car and that LeBay’s wife subsequently committed suicide in its front seat by carbon monoxide poisoning. And as the book goes on Dennis notices that the 1958 Plymouth Fury may be possessed by supernatural forces. Can you goes how it will end and how many people the car will bring to dead?
This book is one of the Stephen King classics and it is defiantly a MUST READ for any horror fan. In this book we have few characters which are incredible described and written. The character development is very clear in this book
I read this book when I was on a vacation, and I give it 4 / 5
“The Grand Design” by Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow
The most fundamental questions about the origins of the universe and of life itself, once the province of philosophy, now occupy the territory where scientists, philosophers, and theologians meet—if only to disagree. In their new book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language marked by both brilliance and simplicity. In The Grand Design they explain that according to quantum theory, the cosmos does not have just a single existence or history, but rather that every possible history of the universe exists simultaneously. When applied to the universe as a whole, this idea calls into question the very notion of cause and effect.
If you are just freshly starting with being interested in how universe works and all that, then this book is for you. This book is a nonfiction and a science book which makes it easier for people to understand how universe works and how very complicated stuff in science works.
I read this book during a weekend and I give it I give this book 5 / 5
“The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe
In Gustave Doré, one of the most prolific and successful book illustrators of the late 19h century, Edgar Allan Poe’s renowned poem The Raven found perhaps its most perfect artistic interpreter. Doré’s dreamlike, otherworldly style, tinged with melancholy, seems ideally matched to the bleak despair of Poe’s celebrated work, among the most popular American poems ever written.
It is one of the most popular Poems / Tales writen by Edgar Allan Poe, and what can I say? It is amazing.
I give this tale / poem 4 / 5

“Pet Sematary” by Stephen King
When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son-and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all…right down to the friendly car. But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth-more terrifying than death itself-and hideously more powerful. The Creeds are going to learn that sometimes dead is better.
The characters are just the amazing nothing more and nothing less. They are good described, they are different from each other and they feel again as real characters. The story is completely unique and brilliant. I personally didn’t see anything even close to the plot of this book.
I give this book 5 / 5
“A Woman Makes a Plan” by Maye Musk
When Maye Musk decided to make gray hair glamorous, she became an international supermodel and worldwide speaker in her sixties – a far cry from the young divorcée living in Durban trying to make ends meet to provide for her three children.
I need to say that the book surpriced me but still there was something missing in it. It could have been better, but it is still a good book which most people will enjoy reading.
I give this book 3 / 5
