Top Ten Tuesday: Adult Edition

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

Adult Edition!

Once again, this is not really the topic. I normally focus my TTT posts on the YA books I have read, and every now and again, I like to scream about the fantastic adult books I have read. Since we are halfway through the year, I thought I would highlight my favorites from the first half of 2020. So, without further ado, here we go!
  • The Authenticity Project by Clare Pooley - The way the power of connection was explored touched me so much in this book. 
  • Undercover Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams - I will never not love being with this crew, and getting to know Mack better was such a treat. 
  • The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler - Alaska and a grumpy hero were definite highlights, and Zoey was all sort of geeky fantastic. Henry dazzled me with this one. 
  • Beach Read by Emily Henry - This was not the rom-com I was expecting, but it was an absolutely beautiful and touching story. There were many times I did laugh, but I also found myself sobbing. 
  • If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane - Though this one leaned more women's fiction than the romance I was expecting, I still loved it. It hit me, emotionally, and I found myself very invested in seeing Laurie get to a point, where she could move forward without looking back. 
  • The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez - Jimenez had me ugly crying for Sloan with her last book, so it was wonderful to get to see her get find her HEA. I considered this a gift to those of us who read The Friend Zone
  • The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis - I doubt Shalvis will every stop making my favorites lists, because her books are always the perfect combination of romance, friendship, humor, and drama. 
  • The Marriage Game by Sara Desai - I know reviews are mixed on this one, but I had the best time reading this book. I laughed loud and often, and it was the perfect remedy for my bad mood. 
  • I Was Told It Would Get Easier by Abbi Waxman - My very first Waxman book was good, but every one since, has been fantastic! I come for the humor, and Waxman never let's me down, but her stories are always sweet and touching too. This one took me back to when my daughter was a teen, and I loved the exploration of the mother-daughter relationship. 
  • The Last Train to Key West by Chanel Cleeton - I am amazed, that Cleeton has turned me into someone, who can enjoy some historical fiction. I am obsessed with this series, and was glad that a slight change of approach didn't affect my enjoyment.
