In Five Years: A Novel
I read fewer novels this year than ever but I instantly forgave myself when I thought about the year I had. Never ending pandemic feels and the loss of my Mother made for a very distracted brain. The books I did read I really liked and wanted to pick up and finish.
Emma read aloud many books this year, including The Secret Garden which I loved. maiki read the works of P.G. Wodehouse to me since we adore watching Jeeves & Wooster. I recently tried the audiobook version of William Trevor’s short story collection A Bit on the Side and I did find many of them fascinating. I don’t find I enjoy audiobooks as much as Emma but it was neat to try.
