Books of 2019

Here are all the books I read this year. I’m taking it a bit easier this year and haven’t signed up for any challenges. Instead I’m going to be focussing on my Read the World Project and trying to get my physical TBR down a fair bit. You can find out more about what I’m reading on my Twitter and Goodreads.

Without further ado, here’s what I read in 2019! Any titles with asterisks are rereads and if it has a link, that goes to my review.
