Best of 2019

I wish you a happy and peaceful new year, filled with good books and amazing experiences!

I’m back. :) (back again…) 

I had to take a bit of a break at the end of last year because I was getting in a rut, with reading and reviews and stuff & honestly it just wasn’t fun anymore. I took a step back and reevaluated the stuff I do here. I have psyched myself out, to how I should write and how I should read and how much I should read and all that. And it took all the fun out of it.

Reading is one of the best things that you can do, it takes you to new places, widens your horizons & it’s soo fun. And I kind of forgot that.

It took me a long time to come to a place where I can have fun with it, enjoy it for what it is, without all the crap.

I’m a much better person at the start of a new year, as opposed to the way I started 2019. While the year was filled with challenges, I’m grateful it happened the way it happened, because it forced me to face my demons. I prefer to keep my demos locked away and pretend they are not there until they explode all over the place. :) Bringing them forth, took the power away.

For the year that has just started, I have big plans. I want to love reading, find my way back to writing and find new bookish friends.

What are your wishes for the new year?

Before I can dive into 2020, I looked back at all the books I’ve read last year (I finished my Goodreads challenge. Yey!! :)), and pick out my favorites.

Here are the best books I’ve read in 2019:


My favorite V. E. Schwabb book so far. :)

The second book in the series. So good, so intense.

So much Ronan… <3

My favorite in the series.

I finally finished the series. It was so good. I loved the ending. :)Have to re-read the entire series. Soon!

I was not expecting to like it sooo much. I was hooked instantly and I’m a fan.
I love me a good fairytale retelling.:) Girl living a template of sleeping beauty, with medicide that keeps her awake. With few days to her 18 birthday, she discovered the truth of who she is.

Cinderella, but better.

Not the biggest zombies fan, in fact, they are my least favorite paranormal creatures, but I fell in love with the series all the same.

Short story, with a huge impact. Girl falls into a hole, that leads to hell. Manage to escape, only to be trapped in a whole different way. :)
Prove that you don’t need a guy to heel you and that finding a new guy to love, is not always the answer.
Love me a good dystopia. :)
The sixth book in the series, the best one so far. It’s funny, it’s steamy and it opens your eyes to all that it could be.
The story touched me so deeply. I was a crying mess days after reading it.

The buried mansion, reports of being haunted and one film crew to investigate it. What could go wrong? :)
Like Quiet Place (the movie), only better.
I hate when someone takes the beloved story and puts its own spin on it, but somehow I adored this one.
I keep going back to this one, it’s one of the best books about magic & magic school set in high fantasy
Dystopia & parallel universe & romance & awesome tech.

I LOVED reading the story from Angelbound from Lincoln's perspective, he is one of my all-time favorite characters.

Did you see any of your favorites on the list? :)

happy reading,
anie
