My Year in Books
This year was, to say the least, unusual. I did less reading than normal, mostly because the loss of my theatre job meant that I lost my audiobook-listening time in the car.
You can see my pattern of reading. I started out inhaling Hollywood memoirs, then took a side road with some borderline political bios. When I got back into a regular reading routine, it was very spiritually motivated. Then onward to politics/psychology and finishing up with some uplifting inspiration.

You read more widely than I do. I read only clean fiction–romance and romantic suspense. I didn’t keep a list of favorites, but my favorite author is Irene Hannon–in spit of the fact that she refers to “irises” instead of “eyes,” and almost alway has a red-headed heroine who has green eyes and wears a green silk blouse and black pencil skirt. 😉 Her suspense line in her books is always awesome.
Hugs and Happy New Year.
I enjoy Irene Hannon’s books too. I haven’t read enough to have noticed that red-haired, green-eyed pattern, but I will now! I always think of you when I read the word “irises,” since you pointed that one out to me.
Have a Happy and Blessed New Year, Sylvia!
