My Top… Books of 2019

My last New Years post. After this, I’ll try getting the blog to a normal schedule. Hopefully posting 5 times a week. Anyhow….

Here it is: my top ten books of the year post. LOL just kidding. 🤣🤣🤣😂😭

I poured over each monthly wrap up, looking at books– some I’d even forgotten I’d read this year! It was brutal, and out of about 110 books I narrowed it down to 52 books… for someone who read over 600 books in a year, I think this is doing good (less than 10% of the books I read).

So, instead I made multiple lists!!

I made a Middle Grade & Young Adult list, Graphic Novels list, and Adult list
And no duplicates  — so yes, this is my way of showing off more books.

Just to clarify, these are books I read this year, not necessarily books published this year!

Top 5 Graphic Novels

ダンジョン飯 1 [Dungeon Meshi 1] (Delicious in Dungeon, #1)Crush (Berrybrook Middle School, #3)Fence, Vol. 1The Backstagers, Vol. 1: Rebels Without ApplauseBEASTARS 1 (Beastars, #1)

Top 10 Young Adult Books

The Gilded Wolves (The Gilded Wolves, #1)Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy, #1)A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers, #1)Spin the Dawn (The Blood of Stars, #1)Sorcery of ThornsAurora Rising (The Aurora Cycle, #1)The Merciful Crow (The Merciful Crow, #1)The Infinite NoiseSong for a WhaleWaiting for Normal

Mostly, I think this list proves that I really need to read more contemporary…. 

Top 12 Adult Books

This list right here is what took the most time, stars friggin’ above. 

Vicious (Sinners of Saint, #1)Red, White & Royal BlueLet's Get TextualFaking Ms. Right (Dirty Martini Running Club #1)

The Foxhole Court (All for the Game, #1)Wolfsong (Green Creek, #1)Sin & Chocolate (Demigod of San Francisco, #1)Trick (Foolish Kingdoms, #1)

City of the Lost (Casey Duncan, #1)Stillhouse Lake (Stillhouse Lake, #1)Sapphire Flames (Hidden Legacy, #4)Gideon the Ninth (The Locked Tomb, #1)


If I was forced at knife point to pick my favorite book of the year, Gideon the Ninth is probably the one that would win… although, I’m not sure if it is because it is the most recently read of the pack or because it made such an impact… 


Seriously, narrowing this down was brutal and even as I’m typing up these final words I’m second-guessing my choices. No, no, I’m moving on — ending this now before I make 5,000 changes. 

What books were some of your favorites of the year?
