Reading has become a huge part of my life this past year- I even have a book Instagram account if you missed it! It’s a pure escape for me, I love that time of the evening where I can dive into bed and know that I’ll be totally zoned into another world for an hour or so. I finished 66 books in 2019 and hopefully I can read as much this year too.

I thought I’d mention a few of my favourite books of 2019, and then some books I have on my TBR for 2020.


  • Eve of Man. Kind of a sci-fi/fantasy book, and my favourite read of 2019.
  • Crazy Rich Asians series– pure escapism and such a good series that hooks you completely.
  • Normal People. So much better than Conversations with Friends and leaves you with a massive book hangover after.
  • The Cows. SUCH a good book!
  • Where’d You Go Bernadette. I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would.
  • The Woman I Was Before. Really good book.
  • Vox- My second favourite read of 2019. You must read it!
  • The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton. Such a wonderful read.
  • The Sun is Also A Star- Loved it!
  • Looking for Alaska– WHAT A BOOK. MY HEART.
  • The Keeper of Lost Things– Love love loved it.
  • One Hundred Names– I was obsessed with this book. Wish I could re-read for the first time all over again.
  • Before I Go To Sleep- You just have to read this. It’s so good!
  • American Royals- As good as I hoped it would be! Deserves the hype in my opinion.



  • So Lucky- I loved Dawn’s book (The Cows) so I’m really looking forward to reading this one.
  • City of Girls– I think I’m going to save this one for summer because I feel like it will be a fab holiday read!
  • The Giver of Stars– Currently reading this one right now.
  • The Flatshare– I’ve heard so many good things about this book.
  • The Bookish Life of Nina Hill– Got this ready to go on my Kindle!
  • An American Marriage– Heard great things about this one and is on my TBR shelf.


Have you read any of these?
