books I've read so far in 2020

Notes from a Small Island - Bill Bryson
*****
my dad used to love Bill Bryson and now I can see why. what a smart travelling weirdo this Bryson is, entertaining me with his laugh-out-loud humour. this book is about his expedition through Britain and as a huge UK fan I couldn't help myself but loving this book. So much fun! 

Inside Out - Demi Moore
****
Demi Moore's memoir turned out to be way better than expected. A very interesting time travel through her career and love escapades. Gave me a whole new sympathy for Demi. 

Fremdkörper - Miriam Pielhau
****
very touching cancer diary. the author is far from self-pity, sharing a highly optimistic and motivating insight into her therapy journey.  

Educated - Tara Westover
*****
this is definitely not an easy read but it has been one of my favorite books this year. very educational, detailed and empowering lecture. deserved winner of many prizes.

How to win Friends and influence People - Dale Carnegie
****
wow, what an inspiring book! I heard so many good things about it and it really helps to understand and embrace human communication. highly recommended. 

Christadora - Tim Murphy
**
I think I've expected too much when buying this book, because many colleagues absolutey loved this book. I have to admit, that it's quite informative regarding the AIDS development in New York but there are so many other books I've enjoyed more. Sorry. 

Drei - D.A. Mishani 
***
more or less a quick and easy novel.

This is going to hurt / Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor - Adam Kay
*****
oh my god, did I laugh out loud during this book! what a fun diary, it was the best choice to read this during my Corona depression. definitely lifted my mood. 5 star book. 

The Year of Magical Thinking - Joan Didion 
***
this book made me think a lot about love, loss and companionship. what if we lose a loved one after decades of marriage? how does grief change our personality and perception of the world? Joan Didion gives the reader a very raw insight into her thoughts and feelings, leaving us with all kinds of emotions.
