Favorites of 2019

It’s finally time to talk about my favorites of 2019. I had a few surprises on this list that I didn’t expect to love. Let’s discuss.

I am not usually a classics reader. I have a handful of classics that I love. So when I picked this up on a whim I was shocked by how much I loved it. It tried to read it in high school because it was a favorite of my aunt. I dnfed it and honestly had forgotten about it until I unpacked my boxes at my new home. I picked it up to give it a try and I fell in love. Unfortunately, my aunt has passed on, but it felt like I had a little piece of her with me after I read it.

This is a last minute love. My husband gave me this for Christmas. I quickly knew it was going to be a favorite. It is everything I want in a witchy book. It is perfect for reading in winter. It pairs well with a large chai tea latte.

I feel like A House of Salt and Sorrows is so underrated. I read this in the summer and I could not put it down. I purchased it a Parnassus Books in Nashville so it has a fun sentimental value to it as well.

This is my first Leigh Bardugo book. I loved it. It was a gritty, tough fantasy to read but so worth it. I have a full review on it if you want to check it out.

This was a most anticipated of the year. It did not disappoint. When I read this it felt so real. I couldn’t believe that it was not a real band.

This was my first read of 2019. My husband gave it to me as a Christmas gift. The writing is beautiful. It is such an interesting take on Greek mythology.

That is my favorites for the year. What were some of yours?
