This week’s Tuesday Topic is: What was your favorite book you read last year? You can write about this topic or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to link up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!
I love to read. I find it so relaxing to sit down on the sofa or anywhere comfortable and read a book. Add a glass of wine and it is much better. :-). Reading takes me to a new place. Reading transports me to the place where the story takes place. It is a whole new world for me.
Thanks to Wendy for posting the books she has read. I go through it and then pick a few to place a hold at the library. Others I have read based on other people’s recommendation as well.
I don’t have a favorite book that I read last year. I read a few interesting books and it was hard to pick one. I wished I could say that I read more books since I did have more time last year. I didn’t. I also watched a lot of TV last year. Thanks Netflix! Also, none of the books I read were running or fitness related but I do have one on my list to read this year.
Unorthodox – Wow! I enjoyed everything about it and learned about Hasidic Jewish traditions. I also enjoyed the Netflix series. It was a perfect thing to do during the beginning of quarantine.
Truths I Never Told You – I could not put this book down. I knew it was a very different way of living in the 50s and 60s but to read about (illegal) abortion made me feel sad and angry.
Ghosted – I was not too crazy about this book. I only finished it because I wanted to see how it ended. Rosie Walsh meets the perfect man. Somehow he then starts to avoid her. Ha, I thought he was just a jerk. He wasn’t. There is a family tragedy that took place years ago and it involves both families.
Darling Rose Red – This was another I could not put down. At one point I remember it was late and dark and I was still outside in the balcony reading. It was twisted but yet interesting. I had never heard of Munchausen syndrome by proxy and this book is an example of it. Cannot imagine how this could be happening out there.
Books I am writing to get from the library are:
The Silent Patient
Win at All Costs
The Vanishing Half
The Promised Land (I have the audiobook and started listening to it but keep getting distracted).
