Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Reads of 2019 (Not All of Them Are 2019 Releases)

I’m really bad at Top 10 lists as I never seem to be able to stop at 10!  So here’s my top reads of 2019 plus some extras that were also incredible.  I’ve reviewed almost all of these on here, so make sure to check out the full reviews by using the search box or go to the page where I list all my reviews by title.

2019 Releases

Gideon the Ninth (The Locked Tomb, #1)

I enjoyed this fun mash up of fantasy and science fiction. Sometimes it was hard to remember it was set in space, but the twists and turns were fantastic!

Vortex Visions (Air Awakens: Vortex Chronicles, #1)

You don’t need to read the Air Awakens series before this one, but I guarantee you’ll want to learn about Vi’s parents once you finish this book.

Steel Crow Saga

Reminded me a lot of pokemon buddies or animal companions from my favorite series but rolled up in a beautiful LGBT+ way with lots of Asian influences.

Sorcery of Thorns

One of my very favorites this year, these magical books and extraordinary librarians will always be on my recommendations list.

Darkdawn (The Nevernight Chronicle, #3)

I was not disappointed with the culmination of this trilogy. It had all the answers I was looking for and some that I didn’t know to ask.

Kingdom of Exiles (The Beast Charmer, #1)

I can best describe this book as Assassin’s Creed meets pokemon. Enough said.

Bloodwitch (The Witchlands, #3)

Each book in this series just becomes more and more brilliant than the last. Can’t wait until she finishes the next one!

Crown of Coral and Pearl (Crown of Coral and Pearl, #1)

Fun and fresh. I’m wondering where the author will take us next.

Non-2019 Releases

Navigating the Stars (Sentinels of the Galaxy #1)

Love this author for her fantasy, but can highly recommend her newest sci-fi series as well now. Fast paced and fun to read.

Come Tumbling Down (Wayward Children, #5)

I’ll have my full review of this up soon, but we finally find out what happened to Jack and Jill when they left at the end of book one!

Brimstone Angels (Brimstone Angels, #1)

This was a reread so I could continue the story after finally collecting the rest of the books. Love the narration for the audiobooks and Farideh is amazing!

Three Mages and a Margarita (The Guild Codex: Spellbound, #1)

I’ve been happily devouring this series since I started it and can’t believe I’m almost caught up already.

The Rebels of Gold (Loom Saga, #3)

Recognize this author from earlier? That’s because I finished this marvelous series in time to start her newest.

Through Wolf's Eyes (Firekeeper Saga, #1)

Another reread in order to catch up with the series but this time it’s because the author finally came back to the world to write more of their story 🙂


What were your favorite reads of 2019? Were they new releases or comfort reads? Finally finishing a series or starting a new one?
