This week I finished off my 2019 reading and started my 2020 reading. I’ll be including some other stats with my books purchased and read in the new year to help me keep track of my goals more easily. My 2020 Goals will be posted on the 14th.
This week I finished reading
Unchartered by Tracy Garvis Graves ✰4✰
Stainless Steel Rat’s Revenge by Harry Harrison ✰4✰
Sassafras by Trish Heald ✰5✰ I stayed up until 1130 pm on New Year’s Eve to finish this one in time and I loved it!
And my first book finished in 2020 was
1. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness ✰5✰ I’m using this for the Pop Sugar Reading Challenge prompt to read a book with at least a four-star rating on Goodreads. It is rated 4.37 stars currently. It is also a book from my list of books on grief I hoped to read this year. That full list will be posted on 16th.
This week I continued reading
It’s Ok That You’re Not OK by Megan Devine (page 87/241)
This is the last book I was in the middle of when 2019 ended and I just haven’t finished it yet. I don’t like to be in books about grief for too long each day, but I appreciate reading them because it makes me feel normal and seen.
This week I started reading
I started reading a lot of books on the 1st. Mostly because I couldn’t decide what I wanted to read first and so I started several at once.
Middlegame by Seanan McGuire (page 80/523)
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (page 8/1468)
Fool Moon by Jim Butcher (page 11/342)
Grieving: A Love Story by Ruth Coughlin (page 10/173)
That Which You Are Seeking is Causing You to Seek by Cheri Huber (page 24/114)
This week I acquired
One day this week Pepper was very sick all night. She was up vomiting and I was up trying to keep her calm and trying to keep up on all of the bedding that now needed washed over and over. She’s only thrown up one time before and it was when my husband was still alive. it’s so much harder to manage a sick kid and other responsibilities all alone. I ended up shopping while she was resting between unpleasant wake ups and I bought several books. They were technically 2019 purchases
If We Were Villains by M L Rio
The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms
Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
Dear ijeawele by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
And one gift:
Lovecraft Short Stories by H P Lovecraft
My first purchases from 2020 were both from Dollar Tree.
1. Falling Ill: Last Poems by C K Williams
2. Doctorow: Collected Stories by EL Doctorow
Next week I hope to pick up
Often I am Happy by Jens Christian Grondahl
