The best books I read in 2019

As some of you may know, my sister Kathy and I have a friendly competition every year to see who can read more books. We track our progress on Goodreads (feel free to add me as a friend there if you haven’t already).

In 2019, I read 68 books (25,087 pages!).

I am pretty stingy with my star ratings on Goodreads (I only gave 10% of the books I read a full 5-star rating), so here’s the short list of books that I gave 5/5 stars this year:

As you can see, Kathy got me started on The Expanse series, which I highly recommend. Even though my two favorites fall in the middle of the series, all of the books are pretty good. The final book is coming out later this year, so it would be a great time to get started on this series.

What were your favorite books you read in 2019? I have plenty of digital holds on Kindle books at the DC library, but I can always add a few more!
