I haven’t read any of the books on your list, but I’ve considered The Body – good to see you rank it so highly! Happy new year, I hope 2021 will be a great year with lots of amazing books!
The Body is really worth reading (as is any book by Bryson, in my experience). Hope you have a great bookish year too!
Fab list with a few on there that I’d like to read sometime! Happy New Year to you too! xx
Thanks! I ended up with 20 on the list, by accident really, then I thought I’d leave it there because it matched 2020.
I hope 2021 brings lots of amazing books your way 📚😊
Thank you! And a happy bookish new year to you too 🙂
I read “Flowers for Algernon” over twenty years ago now and just reading the title on your list brought back some good vibes. Loved it! 👍📚
It’s an unforgettable book 🙂 I have re-read a lot of my favourites lately.
Not read The Time Machine but will put it on the 2021 list. All the best for 2021🙂
Oh yes it’s a must read 🙂 Happy new year to you.
Happy New Year!
Thank you! Same to you.
What a great list, NS! I must get to ‘Me’ soon and Flowers of Algernon has been sitting in my Kindle like forever! Must. Get. To. It. too! Happy New Year, NS! Here’s to a better year, and another year to our bookish friendship 🙂
Thank you Jee 😀 and yes, hopefully a better year all round for everyone! ‘Me’ is really worth it, and ‘Flowers for Algernon’ too (really sad though).
I think the comment I just wrote disappeared 🙁
It didn’t, I have replied to it 🙂
