Top Ten Reads of 2019!

I was looking back for my previous “favorite books of the year” posts before writing this one, just to see, and realized that apparently I didn’t even start it until last year (2018)! So I guess I won’t be trying to post any “best of the decade” lists, because I just know, without anything to guide me (like yearly top tens to help narrow it down), I’ll end up missing something really important and feel awful about it. There’s some I know off the top of my head, but that’s just too nebulous for my personality. So, long story short, you aren’t getting that from me, haha.

BUT, I can at least provide you with a list of my Top 10 Favorite Books from 2019. There’s no rules to this for me, it’s anything goes as far as genre and publication year, etc. – as long as I personally read it in 2019. (Well, there’re no rules, but there is one caveat, I couldn’t pick a Top Ten fiction and nonfiction combined, so I have nonfiction “Honorary” Top Ten additions. So, just bear with me there.)

This is a stack featuring all of this year’s favorites that I own. It was a library heavy year for me and I was glad to support our local one, but definitely wish I had more of this list on hard for future re-reads!

And now, without further ado, here’s the list! In no particular order, with the exception of the first two, which were definitely my two favorites. (*Note: all listed books are linked back to my original reviews, so you can check out more details on what I loved about them, if you’re so inclined.)
