I did not think I would be writing this post now, not even two full months into 2020. But I read 6 books in January and the more you read–even with two graduate classes, which are still admittedly in the “getting into the groove” phase–the more you want to read.
I’ll guess we’ll see when I hit my 20 book goal and if I go over this year. Here are the first ten of the year:
1. The Hollow of Fear (The Lady Sherlock Series #3) by Sherry Thomas. Fiction/Mystery/Historical. 4 stars. *
2. Tales from the Gunpowder Chronicles (The Gunpowder Chronicles #3) by Jeannie Lin. Fiction/Historical/Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Steampunk/Anthology/Romance/China. 3 stars.
3. Heartbeat Braves (Crooked Rock #1) by Pamela Sanderson. Fiction/Romance/Contemporary Romance/Native and Indigenous/ New Adult. 3 stars.
4. Crusaders: The Epic History of the Wars for the Holy Lands by Dan Jones. Nonfiction/History/Medieval/Europe/Middle East/Religion/War. 3 stars.
5. The Grumpy Guide to Life: Observations by Grumpy Cat. Humor/Animals/Life Truths. 5 stars.
