My Year in Books – 2019

This is an idea that I have seen in several blogs, but most are referring back to Laura. It’s fun – you need to answer questions using the titles of books you have read this year. Here is my list:

In high school I was The Reader (Bernhard Schlink)

People might be surprised by The Single Ladies of the Jacaranda Retirement Village (Joanna Nell)

I will never be A Gentleman in Moscow (Amor Towles)

My fantasy job is Letters From Father Christmas (JRR Tolkien)

At the end of a long day I need Normal People (Sally Rooney)

I hate Illegal Action (Stella Rimington)

Wish I had Cakes and Ale (W Somerset Maugham)

My family reunions are Remember Me? (Sophie Kinsella)

At a party you’d find me with Your Blue-Eyed Boy (Helen Dunmore)

I’ve never been to The House of the Spirits (Isabel Allende)

A happy day includes River Journeys (Russell Braddon, Germaine Greer & others)

Motto I live by: Chairman Mao Would Not Be Amused (Howard Goldblatt ed.)

On my bucket list is The Little Breton Bistro (Nina George)

In my next life, I want to have Black Opal (Katharine Susannah Prichard)
