#Blogmas: Top 10 books I read in 2019

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Alice by Christina Henry
    A twist on the classic Alice in Wonderland Story.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Bird Box by Josh Malerman
    This was so well done being that you weren’t supposed to see what was going on.
  8. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
    This follows a grumpy old man. You will laugh and cry all in the same page.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

Should I do a most surprising reads? What types of lists do you write at the end of the year?

  1. You should definitely do a “most supprising reads” list. I might have to copy this one. Did I read 10 books this year?? I’ll have to check my Amazon orders for a reminder.


  2. I think I’m going to. I don’t think I did one last year but I feel like it’s only fair if I always do a most disappointing to do a most surprising as well.
    I never read books as soon as I get them. I have like 700 books last I counted? I have increased the ratio of books read vs unread though. I’m trying to go through them all this month and get rid of ones I know I’m never going to read.
