Welcome to a series of posts that chart my wonderful reading year, 2020. I don’t have the time to review all the books I read and wanted I way to celebrate each one. So I’m going to do a monthly post of all the wonderful books I’ve been reading that month. Short snappy reviews, simple comments about why I enjoyed them so much.
It is a scary world out there at the moment and my reading is suffering, but I am keeping it up and hoping my reading mojo doesn’t disappear totally.
Sending Cwtches to all those that need one.
So welcome to my celebration of my reading in October 2020.
The first book I finished in October was the exciting and splendid Betrayal by Lija Sigurdardottir. This novel takes a look at corruption, politics and misogyny and wraps it all up in scintillating story.
My next read was Dead Perfect by Noelle Holton, whose innate understanding of the criminal mind and how the justice system works, produces a thriller that is both tense and authentic.
Next came Michelle Obama’s Becoming, a stunning read from a women who has become an icon for to so many. It is a intelligent and thoughtful read and will defiantly be one of my favourite non fiction reads of 2020.
Then it was back to fiction in the form of A Cut Like Wound by Anita Nair. An exotic feeling murder mystery and a very enjoyable read.
Next I read The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald. This was a sweet charming and gentle read, just what I needed at the moment. I loved it!
The last book read in October was the brilliant The Coral Bride by Roxanne Bouchard.
Well that was October 2020, a challenging time for us all. I am looking forward to more reading in November and spending time away from the troubling world we are all living in.
