Even though I certainly struggled to find time and energy to read in 2019, I did mange to read a fair amount of books and these are my top five. I loved these five books and I absolutely recommend them.
(in no particular order)
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
There was so much hype around this book, I didn’t expect it to live up to my expectations but surpassed them and more. From the plot to the characters to the pace, Evelyn Hugo was as close to perfect as it could possibly be. This was the first book I read in 2019 that held my attention and had me staying up late to read one more chapter.
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
2019 was the year that Taylor Jenkins Reid became one of my favorite authors. After finishing Evelyn Hugo, I raced to the book store and picked up Daisy Jones & The Six. Even though I thought this book lacked direction in the plot, it was still extremely entertaining and I loved the characters. I even look forward to hopefully rereading Daisy Jones in 2020.
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
If I had to pick one book that was my favorite of the year, it would be this one. I read Where the Crawdads Sing cover to cover during a flight and as soon as I finished, I wanted to start reading it again. I had seen some hype around this book but I didn’t think it would actually live up to the hype but it totally did. The plot, writing, and characters are stunning. I’m amazed by the writing especially. This is one of the best written books I’ve read in years and I recommend it to everyone.
Say You Still Love Me by K.A. Tucker
In the last year or so, I’ve become such a die hard fan of K.A. Tucker and her amazing books. K.A. Tucker knows how to write an engaging, emotional, steamy romance. The characters are so well written, the plot was fun, and the pacing was perfectly entertaining.
Regretting You by Colleen Hoover
Y’all already know I had to have CoHo’s newest book on my list. If you’ve followed the blog for awhile, you probably know I love Colleen Hoover’s books and she’s my absolute favorite author. I look forward to her books like no one else’s. I will always auto buy her books and she’s never let me down with her books. Regretting You obviously was no exception and I loved every second of it. It’s been a long time since I was physically screaming while reading and the plot of this book had me screaming. I had my suspicions of the plot twist but when it actually happened, I couldn’t help how emotional it got me. CoHo always writes the most engaging books that are endlessly entertaining.
