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)

I’ve never been to:  Wolf Country (Tünde Farrand)

A happy day includes: Expectation (Anna Hope)

Motto I live by: Improvement (Joan Silber)

On my bucket list is: Dinner with Edward (Isabel Vincent)

In my next life, I want to have: A Life of Adventure and Delight (Akhil Sharma)

A very happy 2020 to you all! May your reading be plentiful and satisfying.

    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!

      And to you! I’d love Silber’s UK publisher to bring out more of her backlist here but would be more than happy to read about it on your blog in the meantime.
