I’m sharing a few of my favorite reads of 2019. I read up to four books a week sometimes and find it difficult to post about every single book. I selected these from the ones I managed to blog about. Click on the title to read more of what I think about them.
Have you read any of these?
Both of these left me in a puddle. Mockingbird had a few moments of humor and was realistic, while A Monster Calls was achingly beautiful and veered into fantasy.
This one had me captured from the first page.
Contemporary with An Autistic Character
An unusual serious contemporary with romantic elements. A great read.
A second chance romance with all the feels.
The State of Grace
Strong voice and likable character.
Notable Novels About Grief
I know grief seems to be a theme, but since that’s what I am writing, I ended up reading YA contemporary novels about it.
Loved this one. So touching.
Also listed above, because it is that good.
Contemporary YA About Social Issues
Yes. Read this one.
Dual voices. A great book. Two girls get caught in a riot. Deals with race issues.
Heartbreaking and oh so relevant. How PTSD can wreak a family.
Beautifully written. Captivating.
If you haven’t read it, go get a copy!
Funny and cute. A light, enjoyable read.
Well done and interesting.
A little dark but grabbed me and didn’t let go.
Loved the voice. Great characters. Cozy.
The Taming of the Shrew in a modern setting. Had me laughing.
