Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday and had a relaxing day doing whatever you wanted to be doing! Anyone get an amazing gift?!
I can’t believe it’s already time for me to start recapping my favorite reads of the year, as I write this I’ve read 303 books so narrowing my lists down was no easy feat. I’m starting this short series out with standout debuts and in the coming days I’ll share my picks for best thrillers, best women’s fiction, romance, audiobooks, historical fiction and finally some 2019 books that I was lucky enough to read already! All of these books come highly recommended by me and I urge you to add them all to your TBR because I’m a book pusher like that 😜
Only Child was the kind of book I still think about to this day, it was so timely and heartbreaking, yet incredibly beautiful and poignant.
Sometimes I Lie had me raving as far back as 2017 and I’m still recommending it today. The second book is out in early 2019 so if you haven’t read this you have time to catch up!
Rapid Falls blew me away because it had every single element in a psychological thriller that I crave, it was fast paced, exciting very intricately plotted. I’ll be following Cowie closely.
The Woman in the Window took the literary world by storm this year, if for some reason you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?!
The Chalk Man is another book that seemed to be everywhere this year, and rightfully so! It was such a clever mix of coming of age and good old fashioned mystery with an amazingly strong ending.
The Wife Between Us is another one I’ve been blabbing about for well over a year but it’s just THAT good! I can’t say a lot but if you haven’t read you have to, a total must read!
That’s it for my first set of picks, I’ll have a new list to share tomorrow, but I’m the meantime what do you think of my choices? Agree? Disagree? Let me know!
