December 2020 Booklist

Devolution by Max Brooks – Sci fi horror fantasy and totally fun.

Normal People by Sally Rooney – A story about a relationship that evolves over time. Apparently a Hulu series that I think I will watch now as I did enjoy this book.

Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson – I’ve read a LOT of books about race, the history of slavery and racism and Jim Crowe era laws, etc. and this is one of the most comprehensive, easy-to-read books on the subjects out there. Added to my faves list.

The Guest List by Lucy Foley – A classic whodunit and another favorite of the year. Really ended 2020 with a bang!

The Secret of the Old Clock (Nancy Drew #1) by Carolyn Keene – speaking of classic mysteries, this Nancy Drew was donated to QED for re-sale. I plucked it on the pile to read out of curiosity: would it hold up? I hadn’t read it since I was 7 years old and I vividly remember staying up late in the tin shed. I was on the top bunk of our bunk beds made of chicken coop wire, hunkered under my sleeping bag using a flashlight. It must’ve been riveting for it to stand out to me like that after all these years. And it was! I was surprised at how harrowing it was, too.
