Favorite Reads of 2019: Part Four – Best of the Best

Well, here we are at my best of the best list. These are the ten books that I’m going with as my top favorite books I read over 2019. These books are pulled from my first three favorites list which can be found here: Part One, Part Two, and Part Three.

It was SOOOOO tough narrowing this down. Overall, these are books that made me feel lots of feelings while reading them. I’m definitely one that connects to books on an emotional level so that’s what makes a book tops for me. If you’re like me, maybe you’ll enjoy these too. And if you haven’t already definitely check out my first three favorites posts, there’s lots of great books I read this past year and maybe you’ll find your next favorite among them. πŸ™‚

1. A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World by C. A. Fletcher



2. The Last Sun by K.D. Edwards



3. Dark Age by Pierce Brown



4. Wolfsong by T.J. Klune



5. The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang



6. The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty



7. Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson



8. Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater



9. Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh



10. The Girl with No Face by M.H. Boroson



So, that’s it, my final picks! Like I said, it was really tough to narrow this down to only ten books. There were so many books that could have easily made this list for one reason or another–there was just so much great SFF that came out this year, couple that with me getting to some back list stuff…well, it sure did make for a fantastic reading year. I can only hope 2020 will be just as fun and full of great reads. What do you think of my list? What are some of your favorites this year? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!

    Awesome list! I’m actually narrowing down my favorites to five on a post next week, which was very tough! Two of these are on that list, can you guess which ones??πŸ˜‰

    AAAAAH I can’t believe I haven’t got to read The Dragon Republic yet – there’s a 2019 gap I must remedy ASAP! (but first, I will likely read Silver in the Wood, which sounds delicious and which is stashed on my Kindle. I do love starting a year with a few novellas).

    Great list. I still need to read the Boroson book which is outrageous considering how excited I was for the release, and, small confession, but I struggled a little to get into Dragon Republic and put it down – I will pick it back up again, I just don’t think I was in the mood for it over Christmas.

      I’m a mood reader so I totally get it! I’ve had a lot of books I was really excited for that I just….put to the side. *glances at pile of books on end table* Hopefully when you pick up The Dragon Republic again you’ll enjoy it. It did take me a little bit to get into that one because Rin is so unlikable in it, but it really picks up and the ending slayed me.

    Wonderful list! I hear such good things about boy and his dog at the end of the world- I really want to read it. I read Dark Age really recently and loved it! I’m definitely curious about Wolfsong and Kuang’s series. And I love the sound of sorcery of thorns- the concept is fantastic and everyone seems to love it! πŸ˜€ Call down the hawk was beautifully written as well πŸ™‚
