Happy New Year!
I am going to share with you guys about my favorite reads of 2019. In total I have six books that totally stood out to me.
The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes
Whenever Jojo Moyes puts out another book for us to devour, I never fail to enjoy them. I have always loved her writing since first reading her masterpiece, Me Before You. The book possesses all of the positive adjectives you can ever name, from wonderful, brilliant to remarkable and moving!
Here’s my review on The Giver of Stars.
Know My Name by Chanel Miller
Ever since I stumbled across Emily Doe’s name for the past few years, I became so interested to know about her story. When I knew that she had written a memoir, I just had to get it.
I’ve never read a book that was so powerful yet gut-wrenching at the same time. Chanel Miller proves to us that every story deserves to be told. She is also gifted as a writer because her story is just so perfectly plotted and written. If you are still searching on memoirs to read, pick this one and you will be instantly amazed.
Here’s my review on Know My Name.
Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid
This has got to be my most favorite fiction book published in 2019.
I know this book will be an instant New York Times Bestseller, just because of the engaging story with such importance of the themes discussed in the book.
People will always turn their backs to discuss about hard issues such as race, privilege and class. That’s why Kiley Reid wrote this novel. For people to acknowledge that this issue is currently happening to people especially minorities.
Here’s my review on Such a Fun Age.
Young Adult Historical Fiction
The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf
This book checked all the boxes for me. It explores an area of history that is close to my country, it has great representation of mental health and it is full of cultural representation with great mix of action.
Here’s my review on The Weight of Our Sky.
Young Adult Contemporary
Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
I love love this book so much! I just love the trope of enemies turned to lovers and Tweet Cute is best candidate for that. It is an entertaining rom-com about two teenagers whom families have delis and then one Twitter war leads them to an unexpected faith.
I also enjoy all of the references on pop culture such as memes, GIFs and social media. It’s a story that you would want to read if you are searching for a cute and fluffy read.
Here’s my review on Tweet Cute.
Young Adult Contemporary
How To Make Friends With The Dark by Kathleen Glasgow
Kathleen Glasgow writes a harsh yet realistic exploration of pain and sadness in a voice who tries to find her own self after losing a loved one. The unforgettable story touches my heart to the core.
Here’s my review on How To Make Friends With The Dark.
Here you go! This is my list of best books of 2019. I am excited to know what books do you enjoyed reading last year.
Thanks for reading.
