My Favorite Books of 2019

I did the rankings by three different categories: did it entertain me, would I re-read it, and how well do I like the writing. If the numbers seem low, it’s because this is overly competitive. For the last three I did it based on love, which was so difficult.

10. The Unhoneymooners – Christina Lauren.

Ent. 6/10 R.R. 5/10 Writ. 8/10 Overall 19/30

I really like this book but it’s not something that made it high on the list. It’s an enjoyable read but so enthralling that I couldn’t put it down. I do love both the characters and the story line, I just didn’t read it at the right time.

9. SHAZAM! Vol. 1 – Geoff Johns

Ent. 10/10 R.R. 4/10 Writ. 6/10 Overall 20/30

I loved this movie, therefore I read the comic and this is my favorite comic/graphic novel (I don’t know what category this goes under) by far. It’s so good but my romances just take me away differently than action.

8. After the Game – Abbi Glines

Ent. 9/10 R.R. 8/10 Writ. 6/10 Overall 23/30

This is my favorite and I love unplanned pregnancies. I don’t know why but the connection between a parent and their child is another kind of thing. I think it’s because I love my younger sister (who is way younger than me) but I didn’t really plan or want to have her. I was really excited when I found out about her, but I didn’t pray for my mother to get pregnant. I always love Brady as a person. I don’t love Abbi Glines’ writing, but I don’t mind it on audio.

7. On the Come Up – Angie Thomas

Ent. 8/10 R.R. 6/10 Writ. 10/10 Overall 24/30

I have yet to read “The Hate You Give” because I don’t really like reading hyped books, but this book was one I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. Music is my thing and her being a rising musician inspires me and makes me so happy.

6. Snow White: A Graphic Novel – Matt Phelan

Ent. 10/10 R.R. 10/10 Writ. 5/10 Overall 25/30

I love a good retelling and the addition of The Great Depression just threw me through the roof because I love History. It’s so interesting. You know I will like the book if you have those two combinations together.

5. Waiting on the Sidelines – Ginger Scott

Ent. 8/10 R.R. 9/10 Writ. 9/10 Overall 26/30

It’s Ginger Scott. Do I need to say much more? It’s a dramatic book that is amazing and I love it. It’s Ginger Scott.

4. The Deal– Elle Kennedy

Ent. 9/10 R.R. 10/10 Writ. 10/10 Overall 29/30

I tried this book didn’t like it, gave it another Audible try and fell in love. I have a few issues with the book, but all of the greatness hides it.

3. Walking Disaster – Jamie McGuire

Ent. 10/10 R.R. 10/10 Writ. 10/10 Overall 30/30

I was gonna say “Beautiful Disaster” but I read that in 2018, so I read this in 2019. I seriously can’t handle how much I love Travis. He’s my favorite book boyfriend of all time.

2. The Goal – Elle Kennedy

Ent. 10/10 R.R. 10/10 Writ. 10/10 Overall 30/30

TUCKER! Like I said, pregnancies are my favorite. How Tucker acts with his daughter makes me so happy. Tucker loves his girls.

1. Best Kind of Broken – Chelsea Fine

Ent. 10/10 R.R. 10/10 Writ. 10/10 Overall 30/30

This is the book of the year. I don’t know how to explain how much I love this book. It wasn’t first on my list when I was carelessly categorizing this. Once I did take into account the numbers, it was obvious that this was at the top. The sexual tension and how well Chelsea fine did it made me fall in love. She is an amazing writer who knows how to put past and present together in a beautiful way. She is an amazing writer and I know that is the main reason this book is my favorite this year.

Blogger’s Note:
