To Be Read List

Welcome to a new year! Last year I read 21 books out of my 17 book goal. If you’re on Goodreads, I’d love to connect.

I have stepped up my reading goal for 2020 to 20 books. My first TBR of the year consists of four books. One I received as a Christmas gift, another with a Christmas gift card, one I already own, and the last is a book from my sister. Let me know if any of these books are on your TBR for 2020.

The House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig

If you like fantasy stories that include ghosts and fairy tales you will enjoy The House of Salt and Sorrows. This book is a twist on a fairy tale combined with a murder mystery. Twelve sisters have become eight. The setting is a fictitious island with a large estate on top of massive cliffs overlooking the ocean. Four older sisters have died in various ways. However, something doesn’t seem right about the fourth sister’s death. The sixth sister Annaliegh thinks she may have been murdered. Everyone dismisses her claim, but she doesn’t stop looking into the death of her sister. If you are a fan of murder mysteries and fantasy let me know if you enjoyed this book.

The 7 1/2 deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

As you may have noticed, I’m a big fan of Agatha Christie. Especially, her Hercules Poirot novels. This book is recommended to readers who love Agatha Christie. A woman was murdered but there’s another problem. The person required to solve this murder has to live through different people to gather clues about the crime. Each day he is in a different body and must learn new facts during the investigation. I started this book earlier in 2019 and put it down. It's a book that will require my undivided attention. Last year I read it while reading another book. Big mistake. Hopefully, I will enjoy this book as much as the other murder mysteries I read through so quickly.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Burrows

Reading wartime historical fiction can be emotionally draining. That’s why I space historical fiction out between fantasy and murder mysteries. My sister recommended this book to me while we were at their house for Christmas. She’s letting me borrow it. It’s set in post World War II in London, and it’s written in a series of letters. This should be a quick read and hopefully one that I will love.

Winter Wood by Shea Ernshaw

Winter Wood is a fairy tale set in a majestic forest. A girl by the name of Nora has been accused of being a witch, but her family has always had a special connection with the forest. After a severe winter storm, a boy was lost but miraculously found alive. Nora has to discover how and why he survived. But the boy does not want his secrets revealed. I can’t wait to start reading this book.

What are your next to be read books? Let me know so I can add more to my list as well.

Happy Reading,
