Best and worst books of the year | 2019

Book year


This is the second part of my reading wrap up for 2019, which will focus on the books themselves that I read last year.

Yesterday I posted a blog about all the statistics linked to my reading, which if you’re interested in that side of things as well you can also read.

However, I’m going to speak about some statistics to do with the books I read, using Goodreads’ wrap up for the year, as well as picking out some of my favourite and least favourite books of the year. Obviously it’s all subjective, if I hated one of your favourite books I’m sorry, my dislike of it doesn’t mean it’s a bad book by any means.

If you’re interested in seeing all of the books I read, there’s a full list at the end of this post.

So in no particular order, here are some of my favourites:
