I thought about sharing a list of the books I read this year, but I share an Amazon and Goodreads account with my mom (it makes it easier for me to add books to her Kindle for her) and she read a lot more books than me so sifting through what she read and what I read was a little overwhelming. My Kindle list also includes books from my husband’s account and he’s also read a lot more books than I have this year (as he always does.)
I’ve been lesson planning for when school starts for the kids next week so I didn’t have time to sit and figure out what I read, what she read, and what he read. I do know she read around 200 this year (some of them short, some of them awful Kindle books, poor lady) on her Kindle and he read 80 on his Kindle. They both also read a few hard copies of books.
Since I didn’t want to try to make a list of all the books I read, which would have been short (maybe 20), I thought I’d list some of my favorites of what I read this year instead.
My favorite reads this year were:
A Long Time Comin’ by Robin W. Pearson
Lead Me Home by Amy K. Sorrells
Falling Home by Karen White
About Your Father And Other Celebrities I Have Known by Peggy Rowe (the only non-fiction book I read all the way through.)
A Longmire Mystery: The Cold Dish by Craig Johnson
Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish by Bethany Turner.
The Dead Don’t Dance by Charles Martin
Borders of the Heart Chris Fabry
Whose Waves These Are by Amanda Dykes
Silas Marner by George Elliot
The Knife Slipped by Earl Stanley Gardner
A Cord of Three Strands by Christy Distler
I know a lot of readers announce a reading goal for the new year, but I find goals like that distract me from simply enjoying reading. I guess I could set my goal at 20 and see what happens, but . . . that just sounds so organized, so I don’t think I’ll really set that as my goal. Pretend I did, though, so I fit in with all the book bloggers of the world.
So how about you? What were some of your favorite reads of 2020? Let me know in the comments.
