You’ve probably seen other lists like this…I’ve seen enough of them I’ve wondered whether it’s necessary to do my own. But. I always find it interesting to see what people consider the best books they’ve read in the past year, so I decided to take some time and compile my own list.
First off, if you’re interested in seeing all the books I’ve read in the past year, I keep track on Goodreads, you should be able to see my list here .
Now. For my favorite fictional reads…I can’t promise that this list is all inclusive, but it does show you some of the books I’ve read this past year that I really enjoyed.
My list…in no particular order.

Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette (#3 in Cities of Refuge series)

Well. Initially, I intended to post a list here of all the books I read in 2019 that I rated as a 5 star read. I don’t give very many books 5 stars, so I assumed my list would be short.
As I sat down and started listing them…well, I discovered that list was too long. 33 books, to be exact. So I knew I had to trim it down a bit. What you see is my attempt at narrowing this down!
(somehow, I’m not internet savvy enough to figure out how to attach a link to my images…I love it when you can just click on a picture and it takes you to the right page…but you won’t be able to do that here…if you want to find these books, just search the title on Amazon)
Yep, I got it narrowed down…a little. sigh. Folks, it ain’t gonna get much better than that!!
Have you read any of these? I’d love to hear your thoughts! What was your favorite read of the year?
Coming soon — A post about a few of the books I’m looking forward to reading in 2020!
