I spotted this meme first on Annabel’s blog and then Lisa picked it up, and I thought it would be fun to do – not sure that I have ever taken part in this before:

Using only books you have read this year (2020), answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title. (Links in the titles will take you to my reviews where they exist)

In high school I was: Settling Scores (Various)

People might be surprised by: The Art of the Great Dictators (Joshua Rothes)

I will never be: The Woman in the Wardrobe (Peter Shaffer)

My life in lockdown was like: The Year of Reading Dangerously (Andy Miller)

My fantasy job is: Settling the World (M. John Harrison)

At the end of a long day I need: A Sound Mind (Paul Morley)

I hate being: Beyond the Fell Wall (Richard Skelton)

Wish I had: A Russian Journey (Paul Hogarth and Alaric Jacob)

My family reunions are (a): Journey Through a Tragicomic Century (Francis Nenik; translated by Katy Derbyshire)

At a party you’d find me with: The Carlyles at Home (Thea Holme)

I’ve never been to: Paris (Michael Schwab)

A happy day includes: Three Types of Solitude (Brian Aldiss)

Motto I live by:  Let the Old Dead Make Room for the Young Dead (Milan Kundera)

On my bucket list is: A Time in Rome (Elizabeth Bowen)

In my next life, I want to have: Happy Half Hours (A.A. Milne)

I did this quickly so what it actually tells you about my life and my reading habits, I don’t quite know – but it was great fun to do.

Do join in – what will *your* 2020 reading say about your life! 😀
