This is one of my favorite posts to write each year, the other one is my yearly goals. And in a weird way I like writing the most disappointing (which are generally just not what I expected).
At the time of writing this I’ve read 71 books this year. 71! That’s insane. I was aiming for 100 but due to life I haven’t read much within the last couple months.
These are in absolutely no order, I really just go through Goodreads and pick the ones I like.
Best books of 2019 according to me:
- You are a Badass Every Day by Jen Sincero
Filled with short chapters you can pick up on a whim or start your day with. I definitely want to own a copy to mark up throughout life. She also includes ways to implement the things discussed.
- Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
Such an adorable story about the first son and the prince of England going from hatred to something more.
- Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Written in a dialogue-only form it follows the story of a rising star and her way to fame.
- Alice by Christina Henry
A twist on the classic Alice in Wonderland Story.
- Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid
After a night on the town you follow two different ways her life could have ended up depending on one choice.
- The Day the World Came to Town by Jim DeFede
On 9/11 air traffic was rerouted to Gander, Newfoundland. This follows the story of some of those people.
- Bird Box by Josh Malerman
This was so well done being that you weren’t supposed to see what was going on.
- A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
This follows a grumpy old man. You will laugh and cry all in the same page.
- How to Walk Away by Katherine Center
When Margaret ends up in an accident her whole life changes. This is a story about change and growth.
- No Exit by Taylor Adams
During a snowstorm Darby is trapped at a rest stop. And then finds a child in the back of a car while trying to get cell phone reception.
