My Life in Books – the 2020 version

Inspired  by Annabookbel and Lisa, here are my contributions:

Using only books you have read this year (2020), answer these prompts. Try not to repeat a book title.  (Links in the titles will take you to my reviews)

In high school I was The Wounded Sinner (Gus Henderson)

People might be surprised by  Bedlam at Botany Bay (James Dunk)

I will never be The Cherry Picker’s Daughter (Kerry Reed-Gilbert)

My life in lockdown was like The Year Without Summer (Guinevere Glasfurd)

My fantasy job is Painting in the Shadows (Katherine Kovacic)

At the end of a long day I need Billings Better Bookstore and Brasserie (Fin J. Ross)

I hate being Invisible Man (Ralph Ellison)

Wish I had The Pull of the Stars (Emma Donoghue)

My family reunions are Rules of Civility (Amor Towles)

At a party you’d find me with The Survivors (Jane Harper)

I’ve never been to The Burning Island (Jack Serong)

A happy day includes The Bookshop (Penelope Fitzgerald)

Motto I live by:  A Life Worth Living (Louise Guy)

On my bucket list is One Day I’ll Tell You Everything (Emmanuelle Pagano)

In my next life, I want to have Just an Ordinary Family (Fiona Lowe)

What fun!  Feel free to have a go as well!

  1. Your life in lockdown answer… so true! I wish mine had been ‘My Year of Rest and Relaxation’ or that it had only been ‘Here Until August’ – instead I think the best pick from my books would be ‘This Is Going to Hurt’.

  2. Yes, I’m with you Davida. I like to spread my posts. I’ve drafted one, but I posted yesterday, and am posting tomorrow, so I might post this on about Wednesday, depending on how things go!

    Enjoyed this Jennifer. Your motto is perfect!
