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 HIGHLY encourage reading both! I’ve read some people’s reviews about Daisy Jones who didn’t find it super interesting, but ugh, I loved it! The style of it bores some people but has really worked for others. The audio is amazing, though I enjoyed the physical book just as much, if not more. I definitely would try the audio for Evelyn, though. I own the book but I switched to audio about 20% in and wow… it was so good. Both audios are on Scribd!


      1. I definitely get that! I always wait a while to rate & review my reads for that exact reason! I have to mull over my thoughts and feelings towards the book for at least a week or so before I can fully decide how I feel about them 😂


    1. Sadie is truly an amazing book/audio! I personally enjoyed the physical read of Daisy Jones & The Six better, though I’ve also listened to the audiobook and enjoyed it a lot as well. Most people seem to enjoy the audio more, since it’s a full cast and really adds to that documentary feel, so if you think that would add to the experience being more enjoyable for you, I’d definitely recommend the audio!
