The Books I Read in 2019

This past year I read so many amazing books and explored different genres. I am lucky enough to be surrounded by a few friends who also share an interest in reading which made it fun to discuss opinions on some of the books as well as share new recommendations!

I ended up reading 23 books which was one more than last year! Needless to say, I’m excited to share this list with you and hope that you will join in the conversation with some of the books that you enjoyed during 2019 and are anticipating to read in 2020.

I chose my top five with great difficulty because there were just so many good reads. For narrowing down the list I wanted to share with you a few that embodied a compelling storyline with a strong narration and acts of courage. Each book in the top five was different but to me had those few qualities the same.

My top 5 book picks:

  1. Educated by Tara Westover 
  2. The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah 
  3. This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel 
  4. Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
