Best book of 2020 selected by Joelbooks community.

We are young and unbiased, we are here to truly offer you some good titles. On our “lists” and in the following “book of the month” section you will find the best books of the year, hand picked by us.

Last year was the first full year of our website and we had a lot of discussions about our “Book of the Month” list, the thing is that a 12 slot list would be never an objective list. We have different readers, with different preferences, but one thing we all agree with that any pick should be a high-quality, engaging story. Also, this year we try to add runner-ups and non-fiction books. So here are our shortlist for this year.


Garbage Bag Suitcase by Shenandoah Chefalo


A Burning by Megha Majumdar


Pandemic Aftermath by Trond Undheim


The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson

Education in the Digital Age: How We Get There by Nadav Zeimer
