What a weird year of reading for me.
It was a total roller coaster.
Between COVID & the political season & all the back & forth stupid & ridiculous arguments between people, my emotions struggled in it all.
I wanted to hide away in make believe worlds but I also had a hard time just escaping the grip this world had around my mental state.
So its interesting to me to look back & see what did take me away for a little bit
So this one, I really enjoyed the twists & turns in it - especially because it disturbed me so much too. Luckily, I read this in February so before my "disturbed level" was to its max with 2020.
I still love this series.. & the 2nd book was just as good & I actually have the 3rd book but want to be in the mindset to really enjoy it & keep the excitement of it up.
I really really thought this first book was so interesting. I'm not into futuristic or sci-fi books - I have a hard time understanding, but this one was really deep thinking. Now, the rest of them in the series, I wasn't too excited about. The 2nd was ok - the 3rd, ugh. But this one, totally enjoyable.
My Bachelorette loving heart was into this... add in a plus size woman who had some snazzy attitude - Totally into this one! This was my first kick off into Book of the Month club too & I'm still loving it too!
This one wasn't corny or over the top romantic - it was realistic to me in the sense of romance. Funny too. I'm currently reading a book by this same author & I'm really enjoying her writing. She may be on my radar for all her future books.
This one I could not put down... I had to see how it ended. I think I read it all in one day. I'm keeping an eye out to see when the next one in this series comes out. I honestly laughed at the main character & enjoyed the mystery of it all.
AND MY FAVORITES!!! I'm going with 2 for 2020
This book really did change my life. This one made me rethink how I let others treat me & gave me some strength in my soul to be who I am authentically. & with Jen's trademark humor in situations, it honestly made me laugh out loud & equally cry for the things in this world that are said to represent Christianity, but is so far from the hands & feet of Jesus. I may need to re-read this after 2020.
So this may have been everyone's pick last year - I'm late to the game... but I just really enjoyed this book. Warm to the heart on friendship & had a turn at the end that I was not expecting but I totally approved of. This has a lot of hype & usually, I'm horrible at hyped up books - but this one, I'm totally standing behind.
So tell me what your favorite read was this year....I'm always a year behind anyways.
It may very well be my 2021 favorite read!
