Reading List 2019

I read twenty-eight books this year, which isn't bad going for a busy year. In this post I list, in no particular order, some of my favourite reads of the year.




I didn't read as much fiction as I'd have liked to this year. This year was dominated by reading a lot of non-fiction on philosophy and religion, but I think I've had my fill of reading on these topics for the time being and would like to focus on reading more fiction (one of my New Year's resolutions is to start a new novel every month) and confine my non-fiction reading to practical and biographical content.

I hope everybody had a nice Christmas! Here's hoping 2020's a good year.

Nice list. I didn't read that many books this year, which seems a shame after I read a large number of books last year.

Of the ones you have listed, the only one I have read is Me and Earl and the Dying Girl which I thought was a really good book. I actually read it in a single day, which has to say something of how enjoyable this book was to read.

The End of Time and Unfollow both sound really good. I really liked all of Gavin Extence's other books, so I intend to read The End of Time, and Unfollow sounds like a really interesting read.

It was a tough call deciding which books to include. I really enjoyed The Shining, and it's probably my favourite Stephen King novel so far, but it didn't quite move or interest me in the same way as the titles listed above.

Thanks for commenting!

Reading 28 books in a year is quite an impressive feat. I probably managed to read about half of that number this year, although the book sizes were quite varied. I can't say I have read any of the books you listed, either fiction or non-fiction, but I have heard of some of them. I do find it interesting that Stephen King's famous work, The Shining, is not on your list.
