My final #Booked2020 round up. I didn‘t finish all the prompts this year, but considering I didn‘t plan my reading very much, I‘m happy that I got as many as I did 🙌

#SetInIndia: Burnt Sugar
#ParentChildMemoir: Braving It
#GothicHorror: Tha Haunting of Hill House
#EccentricMC: Mit Arbejde

Didn‘t get to Tartan Noir and Set in Hollywood 🤷‍♀️

Now I‘m ready for #Booked2021!

Cinfhen Woohoo!!! Great job for someone who wasn‘t “trying” This is your “OfficialFinalEntry” #Booked2020 2y

A fun, surprisingly sweet murder-mystery.

Joyce becomes part of ‘the gang‘, a group of retirement-home-residents invesigating cold-cases, who find themselves with a ‘live‘ murder (or 3) on their hands.

I loved the characters, their energy, enthusiasm & complexity, and even the side-characters had a story. And the relationships, particularly the inter-generational ones, were fab. The plot twisted suitably, tho I took issue with some plot points.

rockpools Overall though, a good read. And a whole host of #EccentricMC s to choose from, so this‘ll be my final book for #Booked2020 🎉🎉🎉 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft (edited) 2y
ChasingOm I really enjoyed this one too. I‘ve had a good run of library holds that were worth the wait list recently! 2y
rockpools @ChasingOm So nice when that happens- unless they all come in at the same time!! 2y

(A little peak at our MASSIVE roof terrace 😍)

This book has been highly praised in Denmark, but it is VERY Danish - it mixes genres (poetry, vignettes, diary entries, medical journals), but it is done in a quite pretentious way, so I didn‘t get a lot of it. What did work, was the overall themes of motherhood, post partum depression, feminism and finding your way through it all.

Cinfhen STUNNING 😍 2y
JennyM That‘ll be a lovely place to relax in the evenings. But maybe with a different book 😉 2y
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen @JennyM I can‘t wait to fill it up with furniture, plants and maybe a hammock. I have big plans for my Spring/Summer evenings, when that time comes 👌😍 2y
Nerdfins What a pretty area! 2y

I‘m trying this bizarre new thing. It involves only reading one book at a time. Well, two - one in print and one on audio, but close. Right now, it seems to be working!

Up next, 2 ARCs - I‘ve just realised that City of Tears is on the NetGalley app, so they‘ll probably archive it before I‘m done. That‘d be annoying

Then bookspin, double spin & an ARC - although maybe for my Monthly Forecast not my #WeeklyForecast (I‘m not going to get to them!)

TrishB A good plan 😁 2y
Cinfhen How‘s this one?? It looks really fun 2y

rockpools @Cinfhen It is really fun. And kind of sweet. AND it‘s going to be my final book for #Booked2020 😁 2y
Cinfhen Is it print or audio??? 2y
Cinfhen Oh , I see it‘s audio!!! 2y
Cinfhen I think I‘m gonna try the audio for #Booked2021 #ClubSpadeHeartsDiamondInTitle 2y
rockpools @Cinfhen Yes, and nicely done by a polite English older lady, with a bit of a twinkle- it‘s working for me! 2y
Cinfhen 👍🏻 2y
rockpools @Cinfhen Sounds perfect - I wasn‘t expecting my hold to come in til March, so I was planning on doing the same, but they must‘ve bought extra copies- and there‘s more than one #EccentricMC to choose from! 2y

Sorry for the late #Booked2020 my friends! House renovations and prepping for maternity leave have warped my sense of time! But I realized I'm almost caught up again!

I got #RedWhiteorBlueTypeonCover, #EccentricMC, #YANovelbyaPOC, #WineorWhine, #BannedBook, and went back and covered #TartanNoir!

Also realized I covered a few from Fall already, so I'll have time to finish catching up before the end of the year! Yay!

Cinfhen Woohoo 🙌🏻This is your #OfficialThirdQuarterEntry 🎊🎊🎊#Booked2020 2y
