It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another Friday Favorites post! This awesome idea comes from the blog Something of the Book. There’s a different prompt each week, and I pick my favorites for that topic. This week’s topic is Favorite Reads of 2019.
2019 has gone by really quickly, and it’s hard to believe that this is the very last Friday Favorites post of the year. It’s been a really intense and difficult year for me, and I’ve found a great escape in reading. Fortunately, this has also been a year in which I’ve read some truly awesome books. There are so many to choose from, so rather than give a detailed blurb about each, I’m just going to list the books and link to reviews I’ve written wherever possible. This way, I’ll be able to share more than just a few with you guys. There are a couple that I read before I started reviewing, but the stories and how they affected me stayed with me long after I read them, so I knew I had to include them on the list.
#1. This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frenkel
#2. Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
#3. The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
#4. The Revolution of Marina M by Janet Fitch
#5. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
#6. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

I read a lot of really great books, but these really opened my eyes to new genres, cultures, and aspects of history. What were your favorite reads of 2019? I'm looking forward to hearing about them, and hopefully adding some of your favorites to my TBR list.
