Today I’m taking part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! Obviously a very fitting topic for the last day of 2019!
I have to say I think I had pretty good year reading-wise. I didn’t read a lot of books that I ended up hating. And I’m excited to share my top 10 with you guys today!
Without further ado, and in no particular order, these are my favourite books I read in 2019!
Brief Answers to the Big Questions (by Stephen Hawking)
I really, really liked this one. I learned a lot and still had fun reading it! (full review)
Vicious (Villains #1) (by V.E. Schwab)
I loved Vicious! I’ve had Vengeful (its sequel) on my nightstand for weeks but I can’t get myself to read it, I’m afraid it might taint the first book 😦 I would still highly recommend Vicious if you’re looking for a good fantasy/sci-fi book!
The Kind Worth Killing (by Peter Swanson)
Such a good mystery thriller! I adored Swanson’s writing and use of multiple POVs! (full review)
The Hate U Give (by Angie Thomas)
This is a pretty powerful one. I knew this would be special, I loved it! (full review)
Autoboyography (by Christina Lauren)
This book was very beautifully done, the authors did such a good job. (full review)
Dark Matter (by Blake Crouch)
If you want to read a good sci-fi thriller, I would definitely recommend Dark Matter. I was in awe of the storyline and the plot twists! (full review)
Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood (by Trevor Noah)
I kind of wish I had written a full review for this book so I could tell you guys in full length why this book is so, so good and so important. I learned so much. I can and will recommend this to anybody!
The Long Walk (by Richard Bachman aka Stephen King)
I really enjoyed The Long Walk. It had been a while since I had read anything horror and I’m super happy I ended up reading this book. Although I loved it, I can see why someone might not like it as much, to be honest. I’ll still recommend it, though! (full review)
Flowers for Algernon (by Daniel Keyes)
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind (by Yuval Noah Harari)
I have to be honest, it took me a while to finish this one. Not because of its size but because Harari started rambling a bit in the middle parts of the book. It just wasn’t as gripping anymore. But, as you can see, I still put it in my favourites of the year list because, overall, I still enjoyed it and learned much! (full review)
This is it! These are my top 10 reads of 2019! Here’s to another year of good books!
