Bookworms?

How many books did you read in 2020? What were your favorites?
Do you have any reading goals for 2021?

I read 27 (may sound like a lot, but it's roughly half my average).

Notable gems included:

Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon: Laurel Canyon, Covert Ops, and the Dark Heart of the Hippie Dream
David McGowan

Wow, No Thank You
Samantha Irby

Permanent Record
Edward Snowden

Into the Raging Sea: 33 Mariners, 1 Megastorm, and the Sinking of El Faro
Rachel Slade

My First Five Husbands...And The Ones Who Got Away
Rue McClanahan

Self Care
Leigh Stein (not what it sounds like, lol)

I stopped reading for fun once I got to college but with the pandemic I've been trying to get back into it. I have a stack of books from high school that I never got to so I've been trying to work through those before I read some of the newer books that I got recently. 




The Sequel to If I Stay



My goal for 2021 is to read more, and hopefully get through the stack of old books. I look forward to reading an Audrey Hepburn biography and A Man Called Ove

I lost count of what I read in 2020 haha

My noteable reads were:

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows (reserve judgement and give it a go, I swear...)

A Man Worth Shaving For; Oh, Keep Your Shirt On; and First Kiss Train Wreck by Michelle Pennington (best Romcoms and overall best series I read in 2020 - she's got a #4 coming soon too)

Sapphire Ridge Prospects by Darlene Byers (a new author, but with a unique Australian voice)


Tamie Dearen "Limitless" Billionaire series - a sweet romance series set around a group of billionaires each with a disability. Really sweet ad refreshing.

The Man in the Brown Suit by Agatha Christie (I'm trying to go back and read some classics atm. Agatha Christie is amazing and there's a great free audio version of this on YouTube)

We had our second child right at the end of 2019, and then when I stopped taking the bus to work during the pandemic I basically lost all my reading time for the year. I think I read maybe 4 or 5 books on my own time? Out of those I think the most notable ones I read where Liane Moriarty's What Alice Forgot and Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time. Apart from that I enjoyed starting to go through the Chronicles of Narnia with our daughter for the first time!

I didn't keep track of what I read in 2020. I was incredibly busy as work after the pandemic.
This year, unemployed, due to the pandemic. Sheesh.
But my goal for 2021 is 15 books. Not much. But I have 9 down at the moment and halfway through another.
This year I'm reading a bit of everything. Young adult, bio, mystery/crime, and sci-fi fantasy.
I'm wanting to get some old gothic romance in and maybe some westerns, and historical fiction and non-fiction. But we'll see where my tastes take me.

There is no universal rule of thumb to reference while trying to determine when to replace your flooring. This depends on the type of flooring you need to be replaced, the quality of the materials which were used, the quality of the installation process, how you treated the flooring, and so on. kitchen contractors Saskatoon.

I'm beginning to read a lot again! I use to love it as a child before I grew up and life got complicated lol! In a super stressful situation I've only got the chance to read about 5 books this year and three volumes of The Boys comic.

Top 3 I'd read last year:

-Dreamland by Sam Quinones- story of the building of a heroin empire with a parallel story of Perdue (?) Pharma getting millions hooked on Oxy. (Spoiler alert: the heroin dealers were the lesser jerks.)
-The Looming Tower by Lawrence Wright- Going Clear was great too. History of al Qaeda from the wahabi siege of Mecca in the late 70s to its morphing into ISIS. Salim bin Laden has one of the best senses of humor ever bestowed upon a human being- worth reading if only to see his response to the Saudi monarchy when they revoked his pilot's license.
-Katherine Anne Porter's short stories. It is ridiculous how great these stories are.
