Top 20 Favorite Books of 2019

I know, I know, it’s only December and there are still plenty of days left to read in 2019 but I thought I’d get in early with my absolute favorite, five-star books of the year…

(By the way, I’d put all my reviews here for them but the post might go on forever (did I mention I really LOVED these books?!?!?). You can check out my reviews for them all on Goodreads if you need more gushing!)

First, the books I read for the first time in 2019, in no particular order…

  1. More than Words Can Say – Karen Witemeyer
  2. P.S. I Like You – Kasie West
  3. The Warrior Maiden – Melanie Dickerson
  4. London Tides – Carla Laureano
  5. Love and Other Mistakes – Jessica Kate
  6. I’ll Push You – Patrick Gray
  7. True to You – Becky Wade
  8. Olivia Twist – Lorie Langdon
  9. A Glitter of Gold – Liz Johnson
  10. The Dating Charade – Melissa Ferguson

I also re-read a LOT of favorites this year. Some more than once. I tend to go for ‘comfort books’ when I’m tired or stressed rather than starting something new and, nothing against releasing a book or anything (because, seriously, DREAM COME TRUE!!!) but between that and everyday life with three young kids, a husband and people who seem to like it when you talk to them on occasion, it’s been a big year!

So, again in no particular order, here are some of my all-time favorite comfort reads…

  1. The Hawthorne House series – Kristi Ann Hunter
  2. The River of Time series – Lisa T Bergren
  3. Shadows Over England series – Roseanna M White
  4. The Gifting series – K E Ganshert
  5. Then There Was You & All Made Up Kara Isaac
  6. Firebird – Kathy Tyers
  7. Patchwork Family series – Karen Witemeyer
  8. Pretty much all of Kasie West’s books
  9. The Painter’s Daughter & Lady MaybeJulie Klassen
  10. The Kensington Chronicles – Lori Wick

What have been your favorite books this year? Are any of them listed here? I’d love to hear from you! Despite my crazily tilting TBR pile, I’m always on the look out for recommendations for good books 🙂

  1. Olivia Twist, True to You, and A Name Unknown are some of my top-favorites as well! They’re SO GOOD!!! I’m actually reading Heart of a Royal right now, and I’m loving your writing style and the plot (and those characters!!!). Great job!!!!
