On Wednesdays I post my “Top 5” which comes from a Goodreads group that creates topics for bloggers to write about. However, as I mentioned in last week’s post, the moderator is taking a hiatus for the Summer (June, July, & August) so the topics are kind of up to bloggers at the moment.

For the past few posts I’ve been sticking to June topics for years prior, but I’m jumping around a little now. Today’s topic is “Best Books You’ve Read So Far in 2019”. I’ve had a pretty good reading year, so this is a fun one!

The Hunger GamesThe Hunger Games (Series) – Suzanne Collins

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

I know that I’m quite a few years behind everyone else with this series but I finally read the whole thing at the beginning of the year and I really loved it! I could’ve done with a different ending but… other than that, I think that this may be my favorite completed series so far for 2019!

GeorgeGeorge – Alex Gino

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

I actually just finished this book this morning but I really wanted to include it because I thought it was spectacular. I have been reading a plethora of LGBTQ+ reads for June (Pride month) and I have to say that I think this has been the best one yet? It’s middle grade and fairly short, but the story is so genuine and sweet and sometimes sad and I just… really enjoyed it.

Daisy Jones & The SixDaisy Jones & The Six – Taylor Jenkins Reid

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

I’ve already raved about this book on this blog a couple of times, but ugh, it’s just so good! I’ve read it twice since I got it (maybe two months or so ago) and I just really get into the story every time. I know that it bores some people, which I totally get because I usually don’t enjoy oral retellings, but this one just did it for me. I have no explanation.

SadieSadie – Courtney Summers

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

I actually read this last year for the first time but I really wanted to check out the full cast audio in April and it blew me away. Seriously, if you haven’t listened to it, I’d 100% recommend it. Courtney Summers really knows how to write books that tear your heart out and stomps all over it… but in a way that makes the reading experience good, ya know?

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn HugoThe Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo – Taylor Jenkins Reid

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Yes, I really mentioned two TJR books in this post but, honestly, I think she’s been my most enjoyed author of the year. I really love her writing style and Evelyn Hugo was such a fun ride for me. This is another book with a great audio version that you should most definitely check out if you haven’t yet.

  1. I think your year has been way more fruitful than mine because i can ony think of two books than could be consideded a best book of anything! Really sad i know. Sadie was such a solid read though and i hope the second half of 2019 is even better!


  2. Sadie is incredible, and definitely tops my list for the year as well! I really want to read Daisy Jones and the Six, trying to decide if I want to use an audible credit for it now or wait 14 weeks for the library copy.
