Since one of my writing goals for 2020 was also to read more, I thought it would help to keep track of what I knocked off Mount Tsundoku. Here’s as good a place as any to post what I’ve read in 2020 to keep me honest, and what I thought of each book immediately after finishing.
Death by Jack-O’-Lantern by Alexis Morgan: I don’t normally read cozy mysteries, but I picked this one up because of the Halloween theme and then it sat on the shelf all winter. The heroine is an overcommitted committee member trying to solve the murder of the local pumpkin farmer. This was the second book in the series, and I haven’t read the first, but it was fun. Good amateur sleuthing that didn’t stretch credibility, interesting romantic foil, and a very personable dog. I doubt I’ll follow the series further though. I read it because of pining for Halloween, not because of the holiday planning committee theme.
One book. That’s it. Yikes. Not a great month. I did lots of idle flipping through gaming books, but that was about all the concentration I could muster, given the everything going on.
