It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
Kathryn focused on the Goodreads 2020 choice awards and so I thought I would join her. I voted in the first two rounds and was amazed at just how few of the books in all categories I had actually read. I read the most from the Romance category – four. But there are several more I want and plan to read.
Here are 5 I plan to read first:
The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez. I am reading it right now and so enjoying this.
In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren. I’ve seen some lacklustre reviews for this one, but I do enjoy the authors and I like the premise of the book.
Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert. I so enjoyed her previous book so have to read this one.
Party of Two by Jasmine Guillory. Again, an author I enjoy, so must read this one.
Beach Read by Emily Henry. Good reviews have made me want to read this one.
What books do you plan to read from the Goodreads choice awards?
I always feel so under-read when the Goodreads Choice Awards come out. But then, I can only read so much. I have read one of the books on your list here–In a Holidaze. It was my first by these authors, but it likely will not be my last. I enjoyed it, but didn’t love it. The others are also books I want to read. They all sound so good! I hope you enjoy them when you read them! Have a great weekend, Beverly. Stay safe and well.
Thanks! I’m always amazed when these awards pop up at how few I have actually read – and I read a lot. Have a great reading week ahead.
I want to read Barak Obama’s memoir and I’d like to read the Mary Robinette Kowal book–The Relentless Moon. I hope you enjoy your books! I liked Beach Read quite a bit.
Thanks for the recommendation Jan.
Great idea to look at it this way. I usually wait until the final list is made and see if I am drawn to anything. I have read Beach Read and it was good. I haven’t read Jimenez or Guillory but have heard of both of them and would like to give them a go.
Thanks Kathryn. I really enjoy reading those 2 authors. I’m sure I’ll like the Beach Read.
I’ve heard that Beach Read is great! The Goodreads awards have got me on the look-out for a graphic novel called I Will Judge You By Your Bookshelf (I’m not a graphic novel reader usually, but I picked up Good Talk this year and it was brilliant, so I’m eager to try more).
Thanks Sheree. I don’t read many graphic novels but these sound interesting. Will check them out.
