Ten Twelve Books I Read in 2019
I read 54 books in 2019, but before we get to my favourites, I want to list some stats:
- Audiobooks: 26
- Ebooks: 19
- Physical books: 9
- ARC or review copy: 16
- Library borrows: 32
- Own copies: 6
- Rereads: 1
- Abandoned (DNF): 5
- Books I bought after I read: 3
Audiobooks literally saved me this year, and allowed me to post at least 1 new review a week. I have a full time job and other time-intensive hobbies, so being able to listen to audiobooks on my commute to work really helped me listen to some amazing books this year.
I also discovered a love of YA thrillers!
And now, here are
ten twelve (because I couldn’t narrow it down!) of my absolute favourite reads for 2019:
Angel Mage by Garth Nix
The Rift by Rachael Craw
People Like Us by Dana Mele
100 Days of Summer by Abbie Emmons
Little Monsters by Kara Thomas
The Stranger Game by Cylin Busby
Honor Among Thieves (The Honors #1) by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguire
Bid My Soul Farewell (Give The Dark My Love #2) by Beth Revis
Fierce Fragile Hearts (Beautiful Broken Things #2) by Sara Barnard
Lair of Dreams (The Diviners #2) by Libba Bray
Before the Devil Breaks You (The Diviners #3) by Libba Bray
The Shadowglass (The Bone With #3) by Rin Chupeco
