Welcome to my annual “best-of” celebration! Like last year, I’m separating the categories of my yearly best-of lists over a few days. It’s going to take me a few days to talk about all the stories I loved in 2019!
I have exceeded my reading goals for 2019 according to my Goodreads reading challenge! If you’d like to see all of my 5-star reads and extensive reviews, just check out my completed Goodreads challenge or browse my blog archives. Each day leading up to New Year’s Day you’ll get a new post about my 2019 favorites:
- Best of 2019: Novellas & Audiobooks
- Best of 2019: Contemporary Fiction
- Best of 2019: (General) Historical Fiction
- Best of 2019: (Inspirational) Historical Fiction
- Best of 2019: Film & TV
- Best of 2019: Happy New Year #OnTheBlog (reading challenge?)
The rules: because sometimes I need to keep things brief, I’m choosing to share 3 things that describe each of these stories along with a link to Goodreads and my review.
I read a lot more historical novels this year than I typically do! Narrowing down this list was a challenge — these are the best of the best!
