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.)
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.)
