Best Books of 2019 – Marian

Additional mentions:

Best Books of 2019 – Lissa

Things Lissa read in 2019 that she wouldn’t normally have tried:

Marian: I’m very surprised to see that of my five favorite books of 2019, three of them are science fiction books.

Lissa: I know, right?!? What is happening to us?

Best Books of 2019 that I didn’t get around to reading. Yet. (Lissa’s list at work)

Lissa’s Instagram feed is her inefficient yet meaningful place to track the best books she read last year….

These books are coming out in 2020! We are excited!

2020 Reading Resolutions

Lissa’s resolution: Buy and Read More Print Books and Read Them Intentionally (Not in my Bed!) and Write in the Margins.

Marian’s resolution: Read More and Better Poetry. Join a Book Group.

Marian’s resolution FOR LISSA: You should read the Murderbot novellas. And listen to Lockwood and Co.

Lissa’s resolution FOR MARIAN: Reflect on what you read more. The learning is in the reflection. And I think you should try a John Scalzi novel. You can pick which one.
