Books Read From MY TBR–Mount TBR Challenge
Chanel’s Rivera by Anne DeCourcy
American Housewife by Hellen Ellis
Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck
Seasonal Books Read
Reading “seasonally” is one of my strategies for this year.
Snow by John Banville (read in December, reviewed in January)
Wintering by Katherine May–review coming later this week.
Wintering: A Season With Geese by Stephen Rutt–review tomorrow.
Read Books Set in My Stage of Life
Reading such books is another of my strategies for choosing books this year.
Reece Witherspoon’s Book Club choices
I’ve enjoyed several of her choices so I decided to continue trying them in 2021.
Sorry, Reece! I couldn’t get into your YA pick this month. I’m not reviewing it because this is such a weird time. I don’t want to put anyone else off of it. This was the first of her YA picks that I tried.
Continue Reading Essays and Short Stories
2020 was such a weird year! I read to fantasy-ish (-like?) books that I enjoyed and started devouring short stories and essays–usually not my picks at all.
I’m Still Here by Austin Channing Brown (Read in December, reviewed in January)
Loud Black Girls by Yomi Adegoke
American Housewife: Stories by Helen Ellis
after the quake: stories by Haruki Murakami
Books read that I already owned
