I’m sharing my top ten books of 2019 in this post, I have surpassed my Goodreads goal for this year so it is perfect timing! From this, I can definitely tell which genre I read the most of so as I mentioned in my bookish and blog resolutions post, I’m looking to read more diverse books! What genre do you read most of?
So in no particular order, ( it was hard enough choosing 10), here are my top ten books 2019!
I’m a huge fan of Cassandra Clare books, and this last one in the infernal devices trilogy is one I definitely won’t forget! I posted a review of the first two, and I’ll get round to posting this one for my reread before Chain of Gold is released! Anyone else so excited for that? The world building, the character development and a satisfying, but kinda bittersweet ending- I loved this one!
Daisy Jones And The Six
I was pleasantly surprised with Daisy Jones, it has such a unique story line and even the way it was written. It deserved the Goodreads choice awards this year! For fans of music, drama and coming of age, I’d recommend reading this book! My full review is here.
The only thriller and mystery listed! I feel like this book is so underated, the book community should definitely give it a chance! It gives me one of us is lying and gone girl vibes! Natasha is a girl who was dead for 13 minutes, this book unravels the mystery about how she ended up dead filled with much more drama!
A Curse So Dark And Lonely
A book that was released this year, a curse so dark and lonely is a fairy tale retelling of Beauty and the Beast, a book which I read in under two days! I’ve always been a huge fan of fairy tale retelling and this one isn’t an exception! It has just the right amount of fantasy, adventure and romance. Here’s my full review.
The Wicked King
The folk air series has received a lot of hype within the book community. The Wicked King has also won an award for Goodreads choice awards 2019.It has mixed reviews, however a lot of us can agree that the sequel to the cruel prince ( the wicked king) was so good! I’ve yet to read Queen of Nothing, which was released later this year. The Wicked King, is packed with tension, betrayal and did I mention Fae?
Six Of Crows And Crooked Kingdom
These two books were that good, I had to include them both for top ten books 2019. After the hype on the Netflix series which is yet to be released, I decided to give these a go. I absolutely love the concept Leigh Bardugo has created, the heist and characters we all love but shouldn’t really. It gives me peaky blinder vibes and if that isn’t enough, here’s my full review!
A Court Of Mist And Fury
I read this whole trilogy in under a week, and although I can definitely spot a few problems I’m not a fan of, this book provided great escapism which is just what reading is supposed to do and what I needed to. The way I see it is like twilight, loved it at the time but not so much now. I still included it for top ten, as I did really enjoy it and it was one of the first books I bought recommended by bookstagram!
Crown of Midnight
Another book by Sarah J Maas. I’ve not finished the whole of throne of glass, I still need to read the last two! However, this was such a good read for me and I loved reading about this world Sarah J Maas has created. To say the least, her characters are pretty interesting!
A Darker Shade Of Magic
I finished this book only a couple of days ago, but I loved it so it had to be on this list! The concept of magic, four different London’s pulled me in and I am always a sucker for YA Fantasy! My first read of V.E Shwab works, and hopefully more to come!
That’s a wrap! You can definitely tell that fantasy is my favourite genre and if you follow me on Instagram, it won’t come as much of a surprise too! I’d love to know if you have read any of these and what is on your top ten for this year too?
