Best Reads of 2019

18 Dec

In 2019 I have read 107. I am in the middle or nearing the end of a few more so that number should reach 110 most likely. That is the best reading year I've had in a long time. I imagine I'll read less next year, but I still plan to keep up some good reading habits I formed this year. I'll have a separate post next week about my reading goal for 2020 and a few things that are on my TBR List but for today, let's unveil my best reads of the year.

I am doing this without commentary otherwise this post would take me forever. I tend to write a lot about books once I get going! I hope to blog more this coming year about the books I'm reading as I finish them so I can share more about why I like or didn't like a book. Here's my list in no particular order...

Best Spiritual Formation:

  • What Does Your Soul Love by Gem and Alan Fadling
