My Life in Books (2019 Edition)

Surely time to concentrate on 2020, you might think, but I spotted this meme on Laura Tisdall’s blog a little while ago and it reminded me of how much fun I’d had with it back in 2017, then Annabel joined in. Somehow I managed to forget all about it until Karen’s post yesterday. Please bear with me, then, while I look over my shoulder to 2019 one last time.

In high school I was: Exqusite (Sarah Stowell)

People might be surprised (by): Love Notes From a German Building Site (Adrian Duncan)

I will never be: You (Phil Wittaker)

My fantasy job is: Dancing on the Outskirts (Shena Mackay)

At the end of a long day I need:  Sweet Home (Wendy Erskine)

I hate it (when): Witches Sail in Eggshells (Chloe Turner)

Wish I had: The Dutch House (Ann Patchett)

My family reunions are: Stories We Tell Ourselves (Sarah Françoise)

At a party you’d find me with: The Cheffe (Marie NDiaye – transl. Jordan Stump)

A happy day includes: Expectation (Anna Hope)

  1. Hah! I like your fantasy job! And I share your “end of a long day” and “life motto”. (I really want to make a mini project of Joan Silber – hoping for this year!)

    Good reading to you in the year ahead!
