Thanks to Annabel‘s example I’m posting my version of this alternative view of my year in the world of literature.
Using only books you have read in 2020, answer these prompts. Try not to repeat a book title.
Luckily I had quite a range of completed books to choose from, more than eighty! Links in the titles will take you to my reviews. Disclaimer: Not all the statements are true…
- In high school I was The One that Got Away (Jan Mark)
- People might be surprised by The Box of Delights (John Masefield)
- I will never be Dead and Alive (Hammond Innes)
- My life in lockdown was like The Masque of the Red Death (Edgar Allan Poe)
- My fantasy job is Sorcerer to the Crown (Zen Cho)
- At the end of a long day I need A Room of One’s Own (Virginia Woolf)
- I hate being Absent in the Spring (Mary Westmacott / Agatha Christie)
- Wish I had The Last Wish (Andrzej Sapkowski)
- My family reunions are Tempest-Tost (Robertson Davies)
- At a party you’d find me with Finn Family Moomintroll (Tove Jansson)
- I’ve never been to The Black Island (Hergé)
- A happy day includes Chess (Stefan Zweig)
- Motto I live by: Till September Petronella (Jean Rhys)
- On my bucket list is The Gradual (Christopher Priest)
- In my next life, I want to have The Patience Stone (Atiq Rahimi)
Interestingly, not through deliberate choice I seem to have landed on authors from around the world, and not just from the UK — the US, yes, but also Malaysia, Poland, Canada, Finland, Belgium, Austria, Dominica, and Afghanistan.
Does this appeal? If so, feel free to have a go too–you have a few days of 2020 left!
