My Life in Books Read during 2019

author life books read

I was enticed by the idea behind this blog post as read on author Laura Tisdall’s blog 🙂 based on a meme created by author A.M Burgess or Jillian the blogger – so here it is, my life in books I read during 2019. The links will take you the book’s page on Goodreads.

Using only books you have read this year (2019), answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title.

In high school I was an Academic Curveball (by James J. Cudney) with plenty of Hope (by Terry Tyler)

People might be surprised by Spider Bones (by Kathy Reichs) and that The Storyteller Speaks (by Annika Perry)

I will never be Blood Red Dust (by Stuart Aken), nor will I be Sally (by Sara Flower Kjaldsen)

My fantasy jobs are Sunwielder (by D Wallace Peach) and To Be a Queen (by Annie Whitehead)

At the end of a long day I need The Wizard, The Girl and The Unicorn’s Horn (by Kevin Cooper)

I hate Survival of the Fittest (although I loved the book by Jacqui Murray).

Wish I had Amazing Matilda: A Monarch’s Tale (by Bette A.Stevens)

My family reunions are The Dennis Bisskit Adventures (by Stephen Ainley) during The Curse Of Time (by M. J. Mallon)

At a party you’d find me with Sir Chocolate and the Fondant Five story and cookbook (by Robbie Cheadle)

I’ve never been to The Magic Vodka Wardrobe (by Sheila Patel) or Unexpected Wetness by Brian Lageose.

A happy day includes Hunter’s Chase (by Val Penny)

Motto I live by Just an Odd Job Girl (by Sally Cronin)

In my next life, I want to have Shadow of the Raven (by Millie Thom)

My dream came true is: Twenty Years: After “I Do” (by D. G. Kaye) with my Promised Soul (by Sandra J Jackson)

Most of these books caught my attention on Twitter during 2019 and were part of my 25 Books for Christmas, The List, Gift Ideas.

As an author / book blogger how would your life in books you read look like?

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel from Patricia Furstenberg. The book is extremely well written and well researched. Not only does she depict the harsh realities of war, but the emotional turmoil and pain of the soldiers and the Afghan population innocently caught in the war. It was also very interesting to read about the important role Military Working Dogs played in the US Marines’ war against the Taliban insurgents.
