I Don’t Care What You Say Any More, This is My Life*
Margaret at BooksPlease reminded me of My Life in Books, a great meme in which bloggers complete sentences with the titles of books they’ve read in a given year. You’ll want to check her responses, as they’re terrific! And as you’ll be there, do read her excellent blog. Some great book reviews and thoughts await you.
I haven’t done this meme for a while, but I decided to do it this time. Several of these titles, by the way, were longlist contenders for the Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Crime Novel. It’s always a privilege to be on that panel. So, here, without further ado, is…
My Life in Books 2020
In high school I was the one who was (the): Girl From the Tree House (Gudrun Frerichs)
People might be surprised by: Eight Perfect Murders (Peter Swanson)
I will never be: The Sentry (Robert Crais)

Wanna play along? Sure ya do! Just complete the sentences with your own choices of books you’ve read. I’d love to see what you write.
