Books books books books books books books. Or, to quote that one famous line from the film Hocus Pocus, “BooooooooOOOOOooooook!” My love affair with the written word has taken many twists and turns throughout my life.
It began ever so slowly, as does most things when you’re a child. My very first memories include books. I loved the Frank Peretti Cooper Kids series, the Star Trek: Voyager novels, and the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mystery adventures. And I adored the made-for-tv adaptation of Anne of Green Gables with Megan Follows (and swoon-worthy Jonathan Crombie).
Not only have my reading habits changed over the years, but my taste in books has as well. They will be clearly evident in the twenty-four books listed below that I read these last nine weeks. I read on my lunches and fifteen minute breaks at work. For a few years I didn’t read a thing, so I suppose 2020’s been my year to catch up. Here are the last twenty four books that I read in nine weeks.

Knights, dukes and lairds, my oh my oh my! As you can see, I fell down that rabbit hole known as the Romance genre. Between Christian, historical and, well, steamy fiction (but only a few!)
I suppose it’s only the most natural progression of things. Fairy tale retellings have been a favorite genre of mine for years. In fact, my next project is one! With a genre bending twist.
Now that I’m a little more versed in one of my new genres, I think I’ll use the first few months of 2021 to explore another new genre. Perhaps mystery? Or science fiction? Or adventure? We shall see!
In the mean time, did any of the above titles catch your fancy? Are you in the mood for an honorable laird or scheming duke? Perhaps an island tale, or one set within the walls of a castle. I hope you’ve been able to thoroughly enjoy your reading lists this year, and that they brought you some joy.
What’s next on your reading list?
