Amanda’s 2020 Superlative Awards

I saw this awesome tag on Classy X Book Reviews and had to do it! I know we are trying to put 2020 in the rear view mirror, but I get to do one more list and then i’m done.


  1. Tag Amanda as the original creator
  2. Choose from either all the books you read in 2020 or only 2020 releases.
  3. Most importantly, have fun!

Best All Around: Your number one favorite book of the year.

I think I have to go with Lightbringer by Claire Legrand. I want to say House of Earth and Blood, but Lightbringer was the ending to a beautiful and painful story. Plus, it’s never leaving my brain. It’s taken up permanent residence.

Biggest Flirt: Newest or favorite book boyfriend of 2020.

I want to say Hawke from From Blood & Ash, but Amanda chose him so I am going to go with Matthew Fairchild from Chain of Gold.

Class Clown: Sillest/most goofy/funniest book of 2020.

Deacon from the Covenant and Titan series by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

Cutest Couple: Favorite bookish couple of the year. 

I have to go with Poppy and Hawke from From Blood & Ash. They are just too funny.

Most Likely to Succeed: Most hyped book you read in 2020.

House of Earth and Blood, easy.

Best Celebrity Lookalike: Favorite book based off of another story (fairytale/mythological/classics, etc.)

This didn’t come out in 2020, but I read it in 2020. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge is a mix of Alice in Wonderland and Beauty and the Beast. But with demons.

Best Dressed: Most appealing book cover of the year.

The new hardcovers of the ACOTAR series. I know. I said it.

Tallest & Shortest: Share the longest & the shortest books you read this year. 

Shortest: According to goodreads, it was a Shea Serrano short about how silly Trump is. I make no apologies.
Longest: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas

Best Clique: Share your favorite friend squad you read about.

The Spirits from King of Fools. I LOVE THEM.

Most Likely to Survive the Hunger Games: Share the character(s) you read about this year that you think would do well in the world of the Hunger Games. 

I’m going with the squad from A Conjuring of Light. I would definitely want Kell, Lilah, Rhy and Luc on my team. Cunning + magic + sheer force of will.

Best/Worst Plot Twist: What did you read that had a really great or really horrible plot twist?

Best: Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan
Worst: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Series: Best/worst second or concluding book in a series. 

Best: King of Fools by Amanda Foody
Worst: Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout 

Most likely to become a classic: What book has the potential to become a modern classic?

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
