Top Ten Reads of 2019 So Far…


It’s been a while since I’ve written a non-review post (sadly, I’m far too busy with getting my Master’s degree to write monthly roundups anymore), so I thought I’d do a quick overview of the best books I’ve read so far this year. Note, this isn’t just books published in 2019, it’s any book I’ve read this year.

I’ve read 66 books so far and counting, which is a reasonably big sample size. Reviews (if they’re posted yet) are linked by the titles, and I’ve given a few keyword teasers to let you know what kind of book it is. Brace yourselves for some epic literature!

The Lost Puzzler, Eyal Kless
Puzzles. LitRPG. Adult. Sci-fi. Absurd. Mystery. Speculative.

The Girl King, Mimi Yu
