Today we are meant to be talking about resolutions and hopes for 2021 for Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl). But I always talk about my goals and resolutions for the blog and reading in my own time here so I decided to pick out another topic that has to do with 2020 since that is also what the next few prompts focus on.
I thought it would be good to see what authors I read multiple times during 2020. In some cases I did review the books but in other cases I did not. So its good to give them some more attention here.
Terry Pratchett (9 books)
It will probably come as no surprise that I read 9 books by Pratchett in 2020 as I hosted a discworld reading challenge (which by the way is back this year…) Eight of these were Discworld books and one other was a book with quotes that were mostly Discworld. Pratchett is one of my favorite authors but I still have so much to read. I tend to have him on a list like this every year.
Seanan McGuire (9 books)
A bitter surprise might be Seanan McGuire. I’ve been reading her Wayward Children novella’s but had not read anything else by her. But I started the October Daye series and read about 8 of them. Its not my favorite series ever but at the same time I am deep in now, and I do enjoy it. And I have more as ebooks and physical books to read.
Shanna Swendson (8 books)
Yes hello miss Swendson. I finally got myself the last few of her Enchanted Inc books to finish it up. I stil haven’t actually finished it but I did reread all my copies and then started reading the remainder of the books. I really need to finish this series this year.
Ilona Andrews (7 books)
Long series do tend to make it easy to get on list like this. In this case I started reading their (writing duo) magic bites series when I was having a harder time picking up high fantasy. It was fun to blaze through up to the sevent book and then I grew pretty tired of it. I’ll probably finish it at some point but not anytime soon I’d imagine.
Martha Wells (5 books)
Of course with Network Effect coming out I had to reread the first 3 novella’s, finally read the last and then grab a hold of the full novel. I probably wasn’t the only one in 2020.
Patricia Briggs (4 books)
Around the time I started the October Daye and Magic Bites books I also started with Mercedy Thompson by Patricia Briggs. I’d always been a bit hesitant because I wasn’t sure I’d love it but I did. I am going to take my time with this series. No need to rush, right?
Alice Oseman (3 books)
Here of course it were The Heartstopper graphic novels that I had to read. I actually reread two and then threw the last one right after it. Graphic novels are so easy to reread that I probably will do it again when I get the fourth installment when it releases.
Genevieve Cogman (3 books)
Another new author I started in 2020 was Genevieve Cogman and her Invisible Library series. A series I had my eye on for a while. I certainly enjoyed the first three books, they are great fun and fast reads.
Rhiannon Williams (3 books)
You will probably have seen this author mentioned a few times in 2020 if you visit me outside of top ten tuesday. I read her middle grade trilogy Ottillie Colter this year and was quite taken by it. I highly rec it.
Gail Carragher (3 books)
When I finally got myself book 2 of the Parasol Protectorate series I was eager to read on. I reread Soulless and read books 2 and 3, and might I say they have left me with a big urge to stab one big werewolf. And not in a kind way. I haven’t had the urge to pick up the other books because of it or Gail Carragher would have ended up a bit higher.
