My Life in Books, 2020

I do not know who started this yearly meme (and if anyone knows, please let me know), but I quite enjoy reading these posts. I have seen a variation of the questions this year, including a new one for Covid, but most of the questions are similar. If you have or will do one this year, put a note in the comment section.


Using only the books you’ve read this year, answer these questions:

In high school I was Greenwitch (Susan Cooper)

People might be surprised by What Maisie Knew (Henry James)

I will never be The Portrait of a Lady (Henry James)

My life in lockdown was like The Book of Longings (Sue Monk Kidd)

My fantasy job is Information Hunters (Kathy Peiss)

At the end of a long day I need A Room with a View (EM Forster)

I hate being Shunned (Linda A. Curtis)

Wish I had The Lady’s Handbook for her Mysterious Illness (Sarah Ramey)

My family reunions are Jude, the Obscure (Thomas Hardy)

At a party you’d find me with The Ancestor (Danielle Trussoni)

I’ve never been to The Jane Austen Society (Natalie Jenner)

A happy day includes (The Magicians, Lev Grossman)

Motto I live by We Must be Brave (Frances Liardet)

On my bucket list is The Pull of the Stars (Emma Donoghue)

In my next life I want to have Glimpses of the Moon (Edith Wharton)

I can’t wait to do this again….
