Today I’m going to share my favourite books I read in 2019 (not necessarily 2019 releases). I didn’t have a great reading year in terms of quality, I read a lot of mediocre/disappointing books (post coming soon). I didn’t have many 5 Star reads, sadly.
In no particular order:
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I read the entire series in 2019 (on audiobook) and I LOVED it!!
It was such an amazing ride. I adore the characters, the world, everything!
The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E Pearson
Oh my god, this series.
I cannot stress (!!!) how much I loved these books. I devoured the whole trilogy in a week or less. It was incredible. Now one of my all-time favourite series. This series restored my faith in YA fantasy!
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
This is one of the books that surprised me the most, I am not a huge contemporary/romance reader but I LOVED this! Such an amazing book, so surprised it’s a debut. It’s adorable and deals with heavier topics.
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
My last read of 2019 and boy did it end on a high!
Another surprising read – a romance!
It was seriously incredible. The main character has a chronic illness and I have never related so much to a character before. This book was so so so good, if you read anything from this list please pick this!
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
Would this even be my list without a Sanderson novel?
This was my first time reading a YA (and sci-fi) novel by him and of course, it did not disappoint! Unfortunately, I didn’t get to the sequel in 2019 but I cannot wait to pick it up soon. Hopefully, it’ll be on my best books of 2020!
Saga by Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples
2019 is the year I got into comics/graphic novels.
I picked this up on a whim, I had a free trial of Kindle Unlimited and I wanted a quick read, so I thought why not a graphic novel? Oh my god! It’s incredible. I loved every moment. I cannot believe it’s taken me so long to get into graphic novels!?!
Crownbreaker by Sebastien De Castell
Stunning conclusion to what has been an incredible series!
Everything was wrapped up nicely and I couldn’t be happier.
Let me know what some of the best books you read in 2019 were, I’d love to know!
