Last year I shared All the Books I Read in 2018 and shared with you all how I planned to make reading more of a priority for myself in 2019. And I’m so proud of how far I’ve come since this time last year…I’ve read probably triple the number of books. I finally feel like I’m back to my pre-college self who loved reading for fun. Not to mention, I once again have an attention span longer than 2 seconds (thanks smartphones) which I’m SO glad about. I genuinely believe that creating good reading habits can benefit so many other aspects of your life, and I’ve definitely seen that when it comes to lengthening my attention span.
So without further ado, here’s part one of “All the Books I Read in 2019” Fiction Edition:
This is my favorite Jane Austen book by far, so I was super happy that it was the first book chosen for my Virtual Book Club this year. It’s a classic, but also very funny. 10/10 would recommend.
This may be my favorite book I read this year. I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did…which made it more enjoyable. I’ve never read anything remotely sci-fi-y, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was so clever and suspenseful.
This is another book that I had read before, but it was nice to revisit it now that I’m older. It’s a really interesting story, and a very easy read. I’d recommend it especially for teenagers looking for good Christian fiction.
Another book club choice that I was skeptical of. It had a lot of mommy-drama aspects that I wasn’t super into, but it worked with the overall murder-mystery aspect in a way that was both fun and serious and just very unexpected.
My mom told me years ago that “you would like these books. Old people like them.” Thanks mom, for affirming that I have the same taste in entertainment as an 80-year-old woman. I’m sure she’s right. But it is a really cute series. Slow and pleasant. Just like I like.
Ok, so I’m only like halfway through this one…but the movie was so cute, so I’m sure it’ll be great.
I’d never read this book, so on a whim, I decided to listen to it one day. I’m really bad at listening to books. But this one was short and lighthearted enough that I stayed interested…and even if my mind did drift off, I didn’t miss any major plot points.
This also falls into the category of short book to listen to. It’s such a classic, I don’t feel the need to say anything about it.
