Best female protagonist
Now, this isn’t going to be a winner for this category. There were a lot of releases for 2020 with great female protagonists. But I feel like I had to mention this one anyway. Eleanor Oliphant was such a refreshing read for me.
Ideally I would meet Eleanor in a bar and we could share a few Magners. I didn’t have any Magners in the fridge for the above photo but I think she would appreciate the sentiment of an Angry Orchard.
I would be friends with Eleanor (I mean, she would loathe me. But I’d still try). I love that Gail Honeyman was so brutally honest in this book. Eleanor didn’t get a clean ending, and her existence didn’t revolve around falling in love.
