Somehow every year I just barely miss my reading challenge goal. How many books do you have to read in a year in order to keep your bibliophile card? Regardless, I am still an avid lover of books. This year I spent time in multiple genres, exploring time travel, futuristic fairytales, historical fiction, cozy mysteries, and rereading a few urban fantasy favorites. The highlight of the year was discovering The Others by Anne Bishop. This urban fantasy series captured my attention and love from the beginning, while also giving me an escape during some of 2019’s trials. In fact, I read the series three times this past year. Hopefully, I won’t need to escape that often in 2020, but I still think The Others might show up again at least once this coming year.
