The Best Books of 2019 (so far!)

list of favorite 2019 books so far

Halfway through 2019!

Can you believe we are already in the second half of 2019? So far this has been a year of setting some big goals for myself and working on a lot of personal growth. It has also been a great year of reading and there are still so many highly anticipated books to come!

What Makes a Book Memorable to You?

I read for all different kinds of reasons, sometimes to escape, sometimes to connect and some are just for pure pleasure.  As someone who reads quite a few books each month, there are lots of books I love but there is a smaller list of ones that really stick with me for the long haul.

When I have finished a book and am still thinking about it long after I have moved on to my next read, I know that is a sign of an amazing book. All of the books on this made me feel something and stuck with me long after finishing them.

Non-Fiction vs. Fiction

When I put together these lists I look back at my reviews and also my ratings on Goodreads. I often find that my favorites are usually a pretty good balance of both fiction and non-fiction…as you can see with my 2018 Memorable Book List:

Kindle, Audio or Hard Copy?

list of my favorite books of 2019 (so far!)

When it comes to reading formats, I like a little of everything. I love reading ebooks, hard copy books and listening to audiobooks and I really think there are a time and a place for all of them! I love to listen to non-fiction on audio, I get hard copy books from the library and from Book of the Month and I tend to read most everything else on my Kindle. And if I love any of them, I will buy a hard copy after I finish them to keep in my own personal library and also loan to friends.

So without further adieu, here is my list and the links to my personal reviews…
