In 2019 I re-read some old favorites, discovered some new authors and enjoyed many Wilbur Smith novels.
I started off the year re-reading Shogun (one of my favorite novels of all time) and finished the year reading Black Samurai, which both took place in the late 1500’s and early 1600’s in Japan. Shogun is a fiction novel by James Clavell (based one real life adventures of William Adams) and Black Samurai more of a non-fiction book about real person.
In 2018 I discovered Douglas E. Richards and his Split Second series. 2019 gave me the opportunity to read a lot more of his novels. These include the Quantum Lens series and the Nick Hall series.
A new author for me in 2019 was Douglas Phillips and his Quantum series. Through his novels I was able to learn more about quantum particles and mechanics.
This was the year I was able to take a deeper dive into one of my favorite all time authors. Wilbur Smith. I first read his books back in the 90’s and became a fan. I did not read his novels for many year but re-discovered him in the past few years. In 2019 I read (or re-read) 12 more of his novels. I recommend every one on the list!
This was also the year that I got into the Outlander series (A bit late I know). Diana Gabaldon is a brilliant story teller and writer! Book one is awesome! Stay tuned for the 2020 reading list to hear more about books 2 through 8.
