Favourite Books of 2019
2019 was an absolutely amazing year for books! There were so many fantastic reads, it was actually kind of hard to pick my favourites. (I'm going to use that as my excuse for why this post is coming at the end of January rather than just my laziness 😂)
So without further ado, in no particular order, here are some of my favourites that I read in 2019, let me know your thoughts if you've read any of these too!
The Grisha Trilogy
I was so late in the game when it came to the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo and I can't believe that I left it so long before reading these! Especially as I loved Six of Crows so much! However, they easily became some of my favourite books ever and I am so excited for the show on Netflix! Plus, they introduced me to one of my favourite characters - the one and only Nikolai Lantsov!!
The Elvira Slate Investigations
Last year I was introduced to the Elvira State Investigations by Helen Jacey and omg I am so glad that I was. So far I have read Jailbird Detective and Chipped Pearls and I absolutely devoured them! The writing, the characterisations and the plot twists were just spectacular. Everything about these books just spoke to me and I can't wait to read more!
The Invisible Library
I found The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman when I walking around Waterstones on my lunch break one day. I absolutely loved the concept of this book and bought it there and then and it did not disappoint! It was such an easy and fun read. I really connected with the characters and I am excited to carry on with these series!
A Throne of Swans
Last year, I was so so lucky to be accepted to review A Throne of Swans by Katharine & Elizabeth Corr on NetGalley. As soon as I saw this book and read the blurb I knew I needed to read it and I was so surprised and happy for my request to be accepted. It was everything I wanted and more, I even finished reading it in one sitting! The storytelling in this book is extraordinary and kept me on the edge of my seat and I am really hoping that there is more to come!
Not only is The Binding by Bridget Collins an absolutely gorgeous book it is also an incredible read. The concept of your memories that you want to forget being bound in books is just genius and it was amazingly executed. I really enjoyed reading this and didn't want to put it down!
Thank you for reading through some of my favourite books. What were some of your favourite books from last year?
