I am kicking off the new year with the Bookish New Year’s challenge. This fifteen-day challenge is hosted by Tabatha at Broken Soul Reviews. The challenge is open to any book bloggers who want to participate.
The prompt for day two is best and worst books of 2019. I am going to focus on the best books of the year though, in order to keep things on a positive note.
I think that 2019 was my best year yet reading-wise. I managed to surpass my Goodreads reading challenge of 75 books by reading 84 books during the year, which I am still astounded by. I have never read that many books in a year before! I started out the year by re-reading my favourite ever book series – Harry Potter, of course – and this really set the tone for the rest of my year of reading. I probably won’t do the same thing this year, but I did watch one of the movies yesterday so I guess that is kind of close (although we all know the books are far better than the movies….)
Moving on from the topic of Harry Potter (because I could go on all day), here are some of my favourite reads from the past year. Not all of these books were published in 2019, but I did read them during the year. If you click on the title of the book, you will be directed towards the relevant Goodreads page. Here goes:
What were your favourite books of 2019?
