Some years, self reads by theme. There was the year she read only women authors. Another year, she read only memoir. She remembers the summer she decided to read everything ever written by Henning Mankell (That was a very fun summer)
Last year, hmm, she doesn’t think she had a theme last year. Looking at her reading list for 2020, it’s clear 2020 is the year for reading fiction. Just straight-up good literary fiction.
Self read twelve books so far 2020.
Here were her top reads (arranged in the order in which she read them):
- January: Someone Who Will Love You In All Your Damaged Glory, by Raphael Bob-Waksberg
- February: The Goblin Emperor, by Katherine Addison
- February: I Capture the Castle, by Dodie Smith
- End of March, beginning of April: Brideshead Revisited, by Evelyn Waugh
She’s currently reading her first Liane Moriarty: Big Little Lies.
She’s hoping to get into the Ruth Galloway detective series. She’s just ordered Book # 1, The Crossing Places.
Even if there were no “shelter in place,” self knows she would still be doing the same things she’s doing right now: reading, writing, watching TV, gardening, cooking, laundry.
Sharing a picture of her Fourth of July rose, just starting to bloom.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
