Top 13 Books of 2019
Denver Book Blogger Reviews
Here it is! My Top 13 Books of 2019!
2019 may have been my favorite year for books.
I originally was going to have this be a Top 10 list. But I thought, why don’t I give you a book a month to try? That way, you can think of me all year long. And, being the nerd that I am, I decided to give a nod to the Thirteenth Tale and pick 13 books. Who doesn’t like good literary allusion?
So without further ado, here are my Top 13 books from 2019. What I love about this list is it truly represents my various reading tastes. There’s everything from historical fiction to Sci Fi to YA and a mystery thrown in for good measure. The truth is…I love to read. I have no boundaries when it comes to content so I’m able to fall in love with a diverse spectrum of books.
