According to goodreads I read 33 books in 2020. I was expecting to read more while in the hospital, but honestly I was too busy just sleeping. But I still read a great many good books last year, so here are some of my favorites.
Of the books I read five were comics, and six were short stories. Several of them were audio books, too. The vast majority of them were also litRPG since I’m still enjoying that genre quite a lot.
Polyglot() has got to be my favorite from last year. Told from the point of view of a girl dropped into a game world who doesn’t know who she is, or how she got there. Only she isn’t a girl at all. She’s an NPC, and not any ordinary NPC either.
The style of story telling, the world building, magic system, and character development of Polyglot() just stuck with me. I listened to it via audio book, and they chose a great narrator for the book. I will probably listen to this one again sometime.
The other books worth noting came from five different series that I have been reading.
Axe Druid – A band of brothers fighting mobs and magic on another world.
The Crafters Dungeon – A dungeon that likes crafting more than fighting.
Bone Dungeon – A ridiculously funny dungeon made of bones.
CivCEO – Civilization meets litRPG
Awaken Online – A litRPG that follows a necromancer.
I finished Bone Dungeon this year (as the trilogy was completed this year.) I also read through all of Awaken Online and The Crafters Dungeon that is currently out. I’ll be finishing CivCEO in 2021. I haven’t decided if I’m going to go back to Axe Druid yet. It’s definitely a fun one, but I prefer the audio books because they are well read. The other books I read the book instead of listening.
I would recommend all of these series. The crafters Dungeon is great because it focuses on the crafting more than the fighting. Bone dungeon has a good sense of humor, and a bit of intrigue behind the scenes. CivCEO is completely unlike anything else I have read focusing more on commerce and trade than any other book so far. And both Awaken Online and Axe Druid are just really fun adventures.
I was gifted a year of Kindle Unlimited for Christmas … seriously, if you have a reader on your Christmas list that’s a FANTASTIC gift to give them. I plan on using it to whittle down that TBR list of mine. (and all my books are on KU too.)
Till then… happy reading.
