We're six months into 2020, which means Amazon just released its list of the best books of 2020 so far, as chosen by its book editorial team. Having read hundreds of titles over the last six months, the team named Abi Daré’s critically-acclaimed debut novel The Girl with the Louding Voice as the best book of 2020 so far.
“Determining the Best Books of the Year So Far took on even greater importance this year as many of us spent months at home and often turned to books to better understand our new normal or seek reprieve in another person’s story," said Sarah Gelman, Editorial Director, Amazon Books. "In every page and chapter of these profound books, we found opportunities to escape to different worlds, travel through time, and remind ourselves of the things that connect us all. For the Amazon Books editors, The Girl with the Louding Voice stood out thanks to its unforgettable characters and message of hope and determination when all feels lost. It’s impossible to walk away from this book without feeling hopeful.” See the full top ten—along with Amazon's plot summaries—below.
