BOOKS I READ IN 2020

I did a run-through of all the books I read last year and guess what … the number is 27! I read 27 books last year. This makes me just so excited. I love coming across new ( for me ) authors or a new book by an author that I have loved reading in the post and am always looking for recommendations for my next read. Even though I barely read 15 minutes a day, I truly cherish that little window in my day.

Below is a roundup of the books I read in 2020. I’ve categorized them differently compared to last year’s list based on feedback I received to make it easier to identify the genre.

1. The last flight : a novel / Julie Clark

This one kept me up late in the nigh on a weekday and I am not mad about it. Very much a page-turner.

4. The Scent Keeper by Erica Bauermeister

    • Genre : Fiction

5. Lions of Fifth Avenue by Fiona Davis

    • A+

It’s a story two strong women from two different generations connected by their family ties but also by their relationship with books. It involves a heist, a history of hidden secrets, of going at lengths to find oneself and for family. I was very invested in the story and the older protagonist’s story.
