My Year in Books 2020

Inspired by Margaret at Books Please, I used titles from some of the books I have read this year to complete the following sentences. The links take you to my reviews.

In high school I was: Fifteen       

People might be surprised by: Fighting Words

I will never be: Harry the Dirty Dog

Every Monday morning I look like: The Lark in the Morn

I fear: An Air That Kills

I hate being: Down in the Cellar

Wish I'd had: A Summer in Cape Cod

The last meal I ate was: (with) The Bookwanderers

At a party you’d find me with: A Perfect Gentle Knight

A happy day includes: Resistance Women 

Motto I live by: Show Me a Sign

On my bucket list is: Kiss Me Again, Stranger

What has your Year in Books been like?  Do let me know!   

Have you saved something special to read on Christmas or are you expecting a book under the tree?

I did another version but liked doing it so much that I'll save this one and maybe do it after Christmas. Great answers!

Very clever answers! And I'm so glad you tried Ware's Cape Cod books. What a coincidence that she went to school in the same school system you did. I bought two more of her books to save for next summer's reading. I just finished reading Edna Ferber's second autobiography A Kind of Magic and enjoyed it so much after rereading Winter Solstice by Pilcher. And after finishing Edwin Way Teale's Autumn Across America I found his Wandering Through Winter at our local antique mall for $4 and have it ready to begin after Christmas. But I just started Elizabeth Goudge's Gentian Hill, one of the few books of hers that I haven't read, and am enjoying it at bedtime. As far as more books I plan to read in 2021, God willing, I have a long list, many recommended by blog friends. I had to add The Book Wanderers to that list and will save it for my 8 year old granddaughter after I read it. I hope you get to return to Cape Cod next summer--think of me when you go! I'll keep dreaming about it!

This seems like a fun book tag. Down in the Cellar looks charming (is that a dragon on the cover?) as I've lately been leaning towards illustrated books...

Great answers Constance. I remember loving Fifteen when I read it when I was young. I haven't read any of your other books, I think, but I do love your choices.
