Reading list

       24 minute read

Books I’ve read, ordered chronologically. See my top reads from 2020 and 2019.

I’ve always been a reader, mostly voracious and other times…not so much (parenthood will do that to you). I finally started keeping track of what I was reading after one-too-many times where I bought a book, got a few chapters in, and realized I had already read it years before. Oops. Here’s the list, going all the way back to 2011.

  • Books I really enjoyed are marked with two plus signs. ++
  • Graphic novels & comics are italicized.
  • Books I didn’t finish are marked as abandoned.

I also use Goodreads.

Abandoned

Books I didn’t finish are marked as abandoned.

Why didn’t I finish the book? I like to read one book at a time and years ago it took me months to slug my way through a book that everyone kept telling me “keep reading, it gets better, you’ll love it.” Nope, didn’t love it…or even like it. Lesson learned. If I don’t enjoy a book within the first 30-50 pages, I stop reading it. There are way too many amazing authors and books out there in the world for me to enjoy, not to mention my lengthy to-read list (tsundoku).
