The Twenty Books Jay Recommended the Most This Year – 2020

I was pleasantly surprised to find myself on a year-end list of books. As a writer, reader, reviewer and occasional journalist, Jay has seen a lot of books, and these 20 in 2020 stuck with him.

I recommend a lot of books. Each month, I compile a list of the ten books I recommended most that month. This is very unscientific. I scan my Twitter, email, articles I’ve written, and other corners of the Internet to sort my book recommendations into a countdown. People love lists and countdowns…

Regarding #19 (me) Jay said of WHITE PICKET PRISONS,

Kelli Owen is one of a number of authors who is under recognized for her talent. This book could have easily become a copy of a number of stories that orbit this premise, but Owen very quickly establishes that she is no one’s imitator. It has a great crime fiction feel and a marvelous horror sensibility. I was glad to be reading this story the whole time I was in it.

See his blog post for the other nineteen books you should probably be aware of!

For this week’s rant I cover everything from “Angry Sherry” to schmoosy-wooshy, as I discuss all those the things people discuss loudly in public (usually on their cellphone) that make the rest of us a little bit crazier. In the kiddie pool, I discuss your privacy as a writer, and then I bring you happy twitter accounts to make your day a little brighter.

‘Tis the Season | Buttercup of Doom ep 20

BODep20-tistheseason300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
This Week’s Rating: PG13 — buttercup ratings system info here

In this episode… it’s all about the Holidays, capital H. Christmas, Yule, Xmas, Hanukkah, whatever, I hit them all. I talk about xmas letters, vent about Christmas vs. Xmas, question who put the white baby in the manger, and ask you two things by the time I’m done: What did you ask for this year? What are your family traditions?

Sponsors: For those needing last minute Xmas gifts (works for other holidays and birthdays, as well) why not donate in their name and give them a nice card telling them about it? Donate to who? Well, of course, Scares that Care
