I feel a little strange sitting down to put together a blog post that is not a review post – I have definitely drifted away from blogging consistantly this past year, and I apologize. Life is like that though; it changes and flows and you kind of just have to go along with it.
The end of 2019 didn’t go exactly as I had planned. I always look forward to putting together a nice, organized list of favorite books, taking pictures of them, with the hope of sharing on my blog here as well as my instagram (@vikinglady10). But I’ve had some more health struggles, and my pain has kept me from doing much of anything. Except reading. I have been reading still. ;) Thankful for that.
So while I don’t have a nive and pretty organized Top Ten Reads or pictures or anything like that, I did make a list of the books I definitely enjoyed in 2019. It’s long, and I’m okay with that. I mean, can one ever get tired of good reads? I don’t think so.
I’ll probably copy and paste the cover pictures in, since that’s easier than taking a photo myself.
According to Goodreads, I read 23,809 pages across 80 books. My goal was 75, so I was very excited to top that goal. Someday I’d like to reach 100, but I’m making my 2020 goal 80. We’ll rise slowly. ^.^
I also vastly enjoyed:
The Songbird and the Spy by J’nell Ciesielski
Weddings, Willows, and Revised Expectations
Dance With Me by A.M. Heath
Midnight on the River Grey by Abigail Wilson
Cross My Heart by Robin Lee Hatcher
Cameo Courtships by a collection of authors including Debra Marvin
A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson
Underestimating Miss Cecilia by Carolyn Miller
Deadly Intentions by Lisa Harris
The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken
The Gray Chamber by Grace Hitchcock
Bella At Midnight by Diane Stanley
The Heir of Ariad by Niki Florica
The Perfect Christmas by Bell Renshaw
Like a Winter Snow by Lindsay Harrell
and SO many others that would take too long to name. Bravo to you if you’ve actually read this whole list. I realize I am more so putting this together for my own personal reflection XD
I’d love to hear what books you enjoyed in 2019! I’m looking forward to many more books to come in 2020.
