The Books I Read in 2019 Part 2

Hello everyone, I hope you are well today! I shared last week that I met my goal of reading 30 books in 2019, and today I’m sharing the rest of the books I read! If you missed part 1 you can find that here for the first 26 books I read. I definitely slowed down after August, but I read a really large book! I also have another large book that I still haven’t finished, so that will make this year’s list. Okay let’s get to the list!

 

27. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens– This was such a beautiful book, and I’m so glad I read it. The descriptions of nature and the whole story just warmed my heart. It left me practically sobbing and also shocked at the ending, but I really enjoyed reading this book.

28. Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty– I’m slowly working my way through all of Liane Moriarty’s books, and this is her newest release! It was funny and unexpected, and made me want to go to a spa (but not the one from the book)! It might now have been my favourite of her books, but I still liked it.

29. 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne– I read The Hating Game by the same author last year, and I think I might have liked that one better. If you are looking for a book that’s all sexual tension, I’d recommend this one. But it was a little predictable.

30. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown- For some reason I’d read Angels and Demons at least twice, but couldn’t get into the Da Vinci Code! I think this was my third attempt, but I really got into it this time around. I have the other Robert Langdon books on my list!

31.It by Stephen King– This was a literal monster. Might be the biggest book I’ve read and it took me about six weeks to read. I’m glad that I read it because I’m no longer curious about the story, but man it was a long book! I would recommend it if you have lots of time on your hands.

32. You by Caroline Kepnes– This is the book the Netflix show is based on, and reading it was a good refresher because season 2 was just released. There is a sequel and I’m not sure if it’s similar to season 2, but I’d like to read it.

33. The Paris Diversion by Chris Pavone– This is the sequel to The Expats that I think I read earlier this year (it gets confusing when you read so many books)! I enjoyed it, but don’t think the ending gave me the resolution I was looking for.

34. Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella– This was the perfect read for the holiday season! I’ve been reading the Shopaholic books for as long as I can remember, and it’s so funny how quickly I get back into them! I really enjoyed this book and tried to read it slowly! I hope there are more!

35. The Nest by Cinthia D’Aprix Sweeney– I’d had this book on my shelf for a while after my Mom gave it to me to read, and I finally got to it! The Nest refers to a family inheritance that 4 siblings are waiting for when the youngest sibling turns 40, but when one sibling gets into trouble, it’s gone. What followed was a little weird, but overall I enjoyed the book. It did wrap up nicely.

36. Now is Your Chance by Niyc Pidgeon– I would recommend this book if you’re ever feeling a little low. It’s a 30 day book where you read one chapter per day, and it includes small things to add to your day to live a happier life. I started reading it in March and didn’t get all the way through it (maybe because it worked!), and came back to it in December to finish it. I will keep it on my shelf if I feel like I need it again!

37. The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman– A very cheesy book, but I think it’s important to read! I bought this before I got married in 2018 but didn’t get to it until December. The premise is that there are 5 love languages, but you and your partner might have different ones, so you have to learn to speak their language. If you want to be intentional in your relationship, I would suggest reading this book and having your partner read it as well! I’ve read that this book has helped many marriages, and I think I first heard about it in Kristin Cavallari’s book.
