#SixforSunday is… it’s really just that. You choose 6 books (normally) that you’d choose to fit whatever the prompt is that week. This meme is hosted by A Little but a Lot and you can follow the link to find the prompts for January to March. I’ll also post this month’s prompt’s at the end of the post.
This week’s prompt: Books you wish you’d read in 2020
**My choices are in no particular order. You can click on their covers to explore their Goodreads entries.**
1. The Lion’s Den
This novel came on my radar after reading a Reality Show blog that said gave novel suggestions for various reality shows. The Lion’s Den was listed as a suggestion for Below Deck. I kept this book on my TBR as it sounds like an entertaining thriller novel all while on board a yacht.
Fairy Tales are always high on my list for novels to read. This one interested me as it tackles a well-known tale and retells it in a new way. I know a few of my friends that have enjoyed this author’s other works, so now I think it is time that I give at least one of her books a chance as the synopsis greatly interests me and fits my type of reading.
3. Tweet Cute
I recently read this author’s newest work, You Have a Match, and enjoyed the novel. It reminded me that her other work, Tweet Cute, has been sitting in my TBR pile for months. As I liked her writing style in my recent read, I have faith that I’ll enjoy this novel, too!
This novel, of course, came on my radar due to the massive college admissions bribery scandals that came to light in the media. The story for this novel follows similar events with an actress mom bribing a school so her daughter gains admission. It’s an interesting concept that parallels reality and I’m curious how this fictional novel will tackle this story.
5. Simmer Down
This novel sounded delightful when I first put it on my TBR list. It features food while the main character works in a food truck and once you add in the Maui back-drop, the story sounds ideal. Like the other novels on this list, I had ever intention of reading this book last year, but time just got away from me.
6. Written in the Stars
This was one of the most anticipated novels of 2020 and it was on my radar to read a long time ago. Somehow it slipped my mind to actually get around to reading it and now I need to put it back on my Kindle, so I can tackle it this year, at least. It originally interested me as it features the fake dating troupe, which is typically an entertaining read.
JANUARY– It’s all about booooooooooks
3rd – Bookish resolutions for 2021 10th – Bookish wins of 2020 17th – Books you wish you’d read in 2020
24th – Books you’re excited for in 2021
31st – Bookish hates
Even though I missed the first two weeks for this meme, I am excited to try this one this year. I chose my six from 2020 releases as it would be too difficult to remember everything that I wanted to read in 2020. If you’ve read my other posts, then you’ll sense the pattern that I have well over 1000 novels on my TBR list, and those are only the recorded ones on Goodreads. Therefore, limiting it to just 2020 releases at least narrowed down my list to choose from a little (although there are still tons on there). Eventually, I’ll catch up, but I doubt it as too many good books keep being released and my TBR list just continues to increase.
