20 more books read in 2020

Monday, January 25, 2021

The last time I blogged it was 100 books read in 2020. I read a total of 120 so here is the rest of the books I read.



Top to bottom, honorable mentions :)

"A Time for Mercy" and "The Law of Innocence" are by two of my favorite authors. Not to be let down both books were great.

"Texas Tough" was a typical Janet Dailey read. Light and enjoyable. She wrote Harlequin Presents when I was a small girl. My mother read Harlequins -- I'm probably telling my age when I saw this but that was back in the 70s and when I was still in elementary school I started reading them. Janet Dailey was one of the first authors I read and I always loved her books. I read her though middle school, high school, college and beyond.

"The Keeper", "The Stars Below", " The Finisher" and "The Wide World" are a newer Young Adult series by Baldacci. They reminded me a bit of the Harry Potter books but while not AS good were still enjoyable to read.

"Fortune and Glory" another funny Stephanie Plum book.

"Out There" was a great book about an ultra runner overcoming his addictions. Wonderful book!

"The 20th Victim" was good.

"I'll be Gone int he Dark" is a great book, based on a true story, about a serial killer in California.

The other books were "okay" but nothing spectacular EXCEPT for the book showing the "G" as Goodreads didn't have a cover photo. You can find this book on Amazon though. It is AMAZING!



I cannot say enough about this book. It's one of the best -- if not THE best books that I read in 2020. It's a true story about a man who was born blind, his love for music and his faith in God. He's an amazing man and if you take the time to read the book you will discover this as well as the fact that he never let being blind slow him down. I'm so in awe of this man and all he accomplished even as a child.

I hope you are finding time to read! I'm not reading as much this year (so far) as I did last but I'm still moving along and hope to have some good recommendations coming again soon.

Happy Reading!

    Baldacci, Grisham and Connely; we are on the same page. I suggest you check out the writings of Ian Rankin, great murder mysteries with a Scottish theme. The Scots can be a nasty bunch. emoticon
    If you enjoy historical fiction I suggest The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish, a long but fabulous read.

    Well done, keep the lists coming! emoticon

    I want to try that Baldacci series. I enjoyed the latest Stephanie Plum. I thought it was better than the last couple. I just finished an older Lisa Jackson. I was expecting a different book but it was a reprint of a couple of her Harlequin books. Enjoyable and a quick read.

    Wow...120 books in a year! That is a huge accomplishment!! My goal this year is 26 books and I am halfway through number 3. Love having a reading goal for the year.
    Thanks for your comments on the books you've read, always nice to have another reader's perspective.
