Top Ten Tuesday: Books I meant to read in 2020 and still want to.
2020. What a weird year. I didn't finish over 20 books that I actually started, a personal bad record. Many of those books are books I really want to read/finish. There are also other books which are called out to be read all year and I ignored their plea. Listed are these books. Will I get to them in 2021? Who knows.
1. Anxious People by Frederik Backman---I read over half of it before the library checkout ran out. I got back in line and now have to wait another 5 weeks before it is my turn again.
2. Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf---I played along with the Classics Club spin and this is the book I was supposed to read. I didn't. Not one page.
3. The Toll (Arc of a Scythe #3) by Neal Shusterman---I
read devoured the first two books in the series and intended to read this third book in 2020. Didn't happen.
4. Island of Sea Women by Lisa See---I actually checked out the audiobook for this one but didn't take the time to listen to it. I think I still want to read it. Not sure.
5. The Beast Player by Nahoko Uehashi---I have a goal to read all the Printz winners and honors books. This is one of the honor books and I still haven't read it.
6. The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd---I had high hopes for this book since I love the author but I didn't make any effort whatsoever to read it.
7. A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor by Hank Green---the second book in a series that I really liked. I actually used a Audible Credit to get this book so I have no excuse other than I haven't read it (listened to it) yet.
8. Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo---I read about a third of it before the library checkout expired and the book disappeared off my reader. I just got it back but haven't started it back up.
9. The Midnight Library by Matt Hoag---I honestly think this book is the most likely of all teh books on this list that I WILL actually read. Sounds too good to miss.
10. Apple: Skin to the Core by Eric Gansworth---A Native American author who writes stories and poems of being called an "apple", red on the outside, white on the inside. I have a copy of the book on my nightstand. Will I get to it?
