Great question! I‘ve read quite a few outstanding books so far, but I think my favorite has to be ‘A Gentleman in Moscow‘ with ‘The Remains of the Day‘ coming in as a close second.

I‘m really bad at following directions and/or choosing just one, so I have a few contenders for my #bestbooksofar2019 😃

🌟 The Highland Witch by Susan Fletcher
🌟 A Ladder to the Sky by John Boyne
🌟 Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield
🌟 The Lost Queen by Signe Pike

megnews I recently read my first John Boyne and want to check out something else by him. Will keep this one in mind. Thanks for sharing!! 8mo
Soubhiville Yes to Ladder and Once Upon a River! Both excellent! 8mo

Warmth of Other Suns

Dreamland Burning


megnews I‘m so glad to hear The Warmth of Other Suns is one of your favorites so far this year. I‘m reading it now. Never heard of Dreamland Burning but it sounds great. Stacked. 8mo
mhillis @megnews It‘s long and worth reading! I liked how the author was able to zoom in on three specific stories yet still capture the wider situation 8mo

Time flies! How about a top 3? 😉

“Sing, Unburied, Sing” by Jesmyn Ward

“The House on Mango Street” by Sandra Cisneros

Honorable Mention:
“Sadie” by Courtney Summers
(audiobook HIGHLY recommended!)

Also, I really, truly loved the tagged poetry collection!


megzlynn Daisy Jones and the Six. It truly lived up to the hype. 8mo
monalyisha Thanks to @ladyneverwhere & #newyearwhodis (which I organized; is that too immodest? 😅) for the first two books on my list! 8mo

megnews Sing Unburied Sing was one of my favs last year. House on Mango Street was in my top 3 so far this year! Thanks for sharing! 8mo
monalyisha @megnews Sounds like we have really similar taste! I‘ll have to pay special attention to your reviews. 😉 8mo
Joreads I have read two of Jane Harper‘s books The Dry and the Lost Man. Loved them both. I‘m a quarter way through her third and it does not disappoint either 8mo
Joreads @Kimberlone I need to read that series it‘s been on my list for ages 8mo
LogiKitty Haven't read too many but! Sadie (Courtney Summers) was my #1, followed my Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Ransom Riggs), & lastly The Harvest (Alanah Andrews) 8mo
ladyneverwhere Oh yay! I'm so glad those two are still so high up there for you. Heroine Complex and Difficult Women would definitely be up there in my top few for this year. And I finally get Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating from the library. . . But I didn't read it fast enough and had to return it 😜 8mo

Fiction: Priory of the Orange Tree

Non-Fiction: Born a Crime

Hard to pick a favorite, but these stood out and I‘ve recommended to them to friends so they made the cut.
