Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books I Read In 2019


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Favorite Books I Read In 2019.

According to my Goodreads records for 2019, I gave a five-star rating to 63 books in 2019! So how am I supposed to narrow my list down to just ten?

  1. Daisy Jones and the Six also made my top 2019 list for being the best audiobook. I think I would read any book by Taylor Jenkins Reid in this Historical Fiction interview style. I hope 2020 will be another year full of 5-star reads 🙂

    My TTT.

  2. Wonderful list! There are a bunch here that made my list as well. I’m seeing Recursion on so many best of lists, and also A Boy and his Dog. I’m excited to see what 2020 will bring😁

    • Thank you! I’d had a copy of The Heart’s Invisible Furies for a while before I finally read it — I’m so glad I did! It was such a memorable book. Enjoy!

  3. Great list. There are a couple on here I want to read, like Wanderers, Circe, and Our War. The Ten Thousand Doors of January has popped up on a couple lists. I’d like to try it too.

  4. I’m so glad to see Recursion on here! It definitely made my list as well. I just recently put a hold on the audiobook version of The Ten Thousand Doors of January so I’m glad to see you loved it as much as you did. 🙂

    • Ooh, I’ll be interested to hear your reaction to the audiobooks for Ten Thousand Doors! It’s definitely a book I’d want to reread, so maybe audio is the way to go!
