My Life in Books 2020

It’s time to play My Life in Books once more. I did this last year and it was a fun way to look back over the last twelve months of reading.

The idea of the meme is to answer a few questions using only the titles of books read in 2020, trying not to use any book more than once. Links in the titles will take you to my reviews where I’ve got around to writing them .

In high school I was: The Girl with the Louding Voice  by Abi Daré

People might be surprised by (the knock on the door when  ) A Monster Calls  by Patrick Ness

I will never be Old Baggage by Lissa Evans (at least I hope not! )

My life in lockdown was like The Sound Of Things Falling by Juan Gabriel Vásquez

My fantasy job is (to be) The Curious Curate by M C Beaton (but only if I get to curate a library or a museum)

At the end of a long day I need The Mirror and the Light  by Hilary Mantel ( how else would I know where I hid that gin bottle??)

I hate being (In) The Waiting Rooms by Eve Smith (have had more than my fair share of the hospital variety in recent years)

Wish I had: 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World by Elif Shafak

My family reunions are : The Quiche of Death by M C Beaton (better not let my family see that….I might be disinherited)

At a party you’d find me with: Normal People by Sally Rooney (boring eh??)

I’ve never been to: Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

A happy day includes (time with) Dear Edward by Ann Napolitana (in case you’re wondering, Edward is my husband’s name)

Motto I live by (is) Love by Hanne Ørstavik

On my bucket list  (is a visit to) The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

In my next life, I want to have (A) Dear Life by Rachel Clarke

The origins of this meme are rather hazy but I spotted it this year via Karen @ kaggsy’sbookramblings and Lisa @ANZLitLovers. It was a bit more challenging this year because my reading has slowed right down and the titles of the books I did read, didn’t lend themselves that well to the prompts. Not to worry, its only a bit of frivolity at the end of a dark year.
