I simply cannot list my best reads for 2019 until the end of the year. What if I finish a really great book on December 29? (Plus, today is my birthday so I can do anything I want). Traditionally, I try to cull my list to ten but then I remembered that this is my blog, my way. So this year I’ve done some themes to showcase my favourite reads. Because if you have a great reading year, why choose an arbitrary 10 books?
All books have been listed in the order that I read them. Click on the title below the picture to read my review.

Looking back, having a yellow cover seems to have been a strong starting point for a great book.
Do I dare do a books of the decade, seeing as Sam Still Reading will turn 10 in 2020?
Happy Birthday! 🎂
Thanks for sharing your favourites lists
So many good books! I have about 4 of these on my TBR now … I think I’m most looking forward to the Graeme Simsion and Taylor Jenkins Reid. Happy reading!
Happy Birthday. I wonder if you received any books for your birthday? I would find it very hard to select my favourite books for the year. I have read and loved some of your selection.
I ended up doing a books of the decade post which will be up tomorrow. Surprised the heck out of me let alone anyone else.
I am still working on my 2019 top reads post. I don’t think I have read any of your top choices. I’ll have to look again more closely.
(Please check your MM post as it won’t open – thanks.)
