A Look Back: Did I read my most anticipated books of 2020?

 

 

I wanted to look back and see what books I was most excited for in 2020.  I always like to see if I actually read them or not since so much changes for me and my reading moods.

Review of Glimpsed by G.F. Miller (physical arc)

 

49200365._SY475_

Glimpsed by G.F. Miller

Perfect for fans of Geekerella and Jenn Bennett, this charming, sparkly rom-com follows a wish-granting teen forced to question if she’s really doing good—and if she has the power to make her own dreams come true.

Charity is a fairy godmother. She doesn’t wear a poofy dress or go around waving a wand, but she does make sure the deepest desires of the student population at Jack London High School come true. And she knows what they want even better than they do because she can glimpse their perfect futures.

But when Charity fulfills a glimpse that gets Vibha crowned homecoming queen, it ends in disaster. Suddenly, every wish Charity has ever granted is called into question. Has she really been helping people? Where do these glimpses come from, anyway? What if she’s not getting the whole picture?

Making this existential crisis way worse is Noah—the adorkable and (in Charity’s opinion) diabolical ex of one of her past clients—who blames her for sabotaging his prom plans and claims her interventions are doing more harm than good. He demands that she stop granting wishes and help him get his girl back. At first, Charity has no choice but to play along. But soon, Noah becomes an unexpected ally in getting to the bottom of the glimpses. Before long, Charity dares to call him her friend…and even starts to wish he were something more. But can the fairy godmother ever get the happily ever after?

Goodreads Monday 1/25/21

 

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

It’s getting hard to remember which ones I’ve done already, so I’m sorry if you see a book pop up on these more than once.  It will happen.  Probably a lot.

Down the TBR Hole #170

 

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go

I am going to remove sequels for books when I haven’t read book one.  They may or may not get added back later.

 

 

I’m getting to more recent books now and won’t be removing as many.  Because of this, I’m not going to do 20 per post.  Probably 10 or 15.

My Lack of Commenting

 

I just wanted to apologize for not commenting and replying to comments lately.  January has been a very crazy month for us.  My daughter’s car (in our name) got hit on the 1st.  It took almost two weeks to get it done and we had to drive to take care of it (2 hours one way). My father in law was sick and then passed away.  He was moved to another hospital across state lines, so we traveled there.  My daughter had a baby on the 14th.  And our other grandson’s birthday was the 17th.  Our furnace also went out and is currently being replaced.  It’s been a mess.

Thank you to everyone who still visits and comments.  I hope things will slow down and I’ll be able to reply more often.

2020 Debuts I Read

 

I am surprised by how many debuts I read last year.  It’s a good surprise though.  I really enjoy finding and supporting new authors.  Since there are so many, I’m just going to post covers without descriptions.

 

I think all of these were debuts.  If I’m wrong on one, please let me know.  When I say debut, I mean books published and not self published books.
