πŸ“š My Life in Books 2020

Hello my fellow bookworms, I am so sorry I have been absent from my blog for so long: I’m afraid I have been very poorly πŸ€’ and then I was daunted by how to start back. Then I saw this fun meme doing the rounds on some of my favourite blogs and I thought that looks like a great way to ease myself back into blogging. I first spotted this meme being done on Karen’s blogΒ and since then I’ve enjoyed seeing it on Cathy (746), Ali, Margaret, Laurie and Cathy’s blogs, too.

To take part is simple: answer the following questions using only the titles of books read in 2020, trying not to use any book more than once. Links in the titles will take you to my reviews, where I’ve been able to get around to writing them (I am disastrously behind πŸ™„)!!

Β  Β 

In high school I was The Favourite (Ophelia Field)

People might be surprised byΒ The Cottingley Secret (Hazel Gaynor)

I will never be (like) Lady Susan (Jane Austen)

Every Monday morning I look like Jane Seymour: The Haunted Queen (Alison Weir)

Β  Β 

I fear The Poison Bed (E. C. Fremantle)

My life in lockdown was likeΒ The Berlin Wall (Mark Black)

My fantasy job is More Than A Carpenter (Josh and Sean McDowell)

At the end of a long day I need Quick Cooking (Mary Berry)

Β  Β 

I hate being Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (Jules Verne)

Wish I had Wholeness (Christy Wimber)

My family reunions are (full of) The Loving Spirit (Daphne du Maurier)

At a party you’d find me with (the) Lords and Ladies (Terry Pratchett)

Β  Β 

I’ve never been to Wolf Hall (Hilary Mantel)

A happy day includes (The Hairy Bikers’) One Pot Wonders (Si King & Dave)

Motto I live byThe Man Who Would Be King‘ (Rudyard Kipling)

On my bucket list is (to visit) The Marvelous Land of Oz (L. Frank Baum)

In my next life, I want to have The Bible Jesus Read (Philip Yancey)
