As 2020 draws to an end, it’s time to look back on a year where books seem to have been more important than ever. Today, I’m putting the focus on my favourite series of the year. Each and every one of these is outstanding!
| Karin Slaughter – Will Trent |
No list is complete without Karin Slaughter!
| M.W. Craven – The Curator |
Featuring one of the best pairings out there in crime land!
| Eva Bjørg Ægisdottir – A Creak on the Stairs |
I’ve included this one because it felt like it was the first in a series but I could be wrong. Anypoodle, Icelandic noir doesn’t come much more atmospheric than this!
| Will Dean – Tuva Moodyson |
Third book in the Tuva Moodyson series and another hit for Will Dean!
| Thomas Enger & Jørn Lier Horst – Blix and Ramm |
A new Scandi-Noir favourite!
| Matt Wesolowski – Six Stories |
Six Stories still going incredibly strong!
| Jane Casey – The Cutting Place |
I got through the entire Maeve Kerrigan series this year and absolutely loved every single book!
| Bella Ellis – Brontë Mysteries |
I do love me some historical crime fiction and the Brontë Mysteries are such a treat.
| Richard Osman – Thursday Murder Club |
Truly delightful from start to finish. I can’t wait to hang out with the Thursday murder club again!
| Helen Fields – DI Luc Callanach |
The “Perfect” series has always been able to stand out from the crowd but this latest addition is really something else altogether.
| Cara Hunter – DI Adam Fawley |
I’ve loved this series from the very beginning and I don’t see that changing any time soon!
| Steph Broadribb – Lori Anderson |
If there is one thing I should have learned from reading the Lori Anderson series, it’s to have an oxygen tank at the ready because her adventures always leave me gasping for breath and Deep Dark Night is no different!
| John Grisham – Jake Brigance |
Grisham has been incredibly hit and miss for me the last couple of years but this one reminded me of the good days.
| Angela Marsons – DI Kim Stone |
Thirteen books in and the Kim Stone series remains as gripping as ever!
| Michael Wood – DCI Matilda Darke |
I don’t know why but it feels to me as if this is a series that seems to fly just that little bit under the radar and it isn’t talked about enough and it really should be!
And there you have it. The series that made 2020 a little better. Have you read any of these? Did I miss your favourite series? If so, give it a shout-out in the comments!
I’ll be back with my books of the year. At some point. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe next week. Who knows? I can’t seem to be able to actually finish the list. 😳
Hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas! Until next time. xx
