Favorite Books I Read In 2019


In no particular order, my favourite reads of 2019 were:


The Last Letter - Rebecca Yarros
This book left me freakin' traumatised. I'll never ever read it again. However, it was heart-breakingly beautiful and it definitely lest its mark on my soul.


Wild Like The Wind - Kristen Ashley
Hound broke my heart! I loved him even though he was so far from perfect.


The Guild Codex: Spellbound series - Annette Marie
Yes, I'm putting the entire series on the list. It was so much fun and I LOVED it and will spend most of 2020 anxiously awaiting the next book then the next book until it is complete!


The Guild Codex: Demonized Series - Annette Marie
Yes, these are on the list too. Annette Marie has been the author to make the biggest impact on me this year so it shouldn't be surprising.


Red Winter - Annette Marie
Yep! More Annette Marie. I'm not sorry. This book blew me away and I can't wait to finish the trilogy early in the new year.


Sapphire Flames - Ilona Andrews
I don't think there will ever be an Ilona Andrews book I don't love. I don't think it's actually possible.


The Bar Next Door - Katia Rose
Monroe and Julien were awesome characters and their relationship made me swoon! The book was a perfect blend of sexy, sweet and fun and left me wanting more therefore it definitely deserves a mention.


Unearthed by Cecy Robson
This book was a great start to a new series and considering how excited I am for the next book in the series, well, it had to be on the list, didn't it?


The Cruel Prince - Holly Black
A last minute edition as I only got around to reading it last week but I have to admit... I thoroughly enjoyed The Cruel Prince and when looking at the books I've read this year it would have been a mistake not to include it.

🌻

So, that's my list! The books that had the biggest impact this year, for me. 

What are yours?

  1. Lots of great covers in that pile and books I remember seeing some of those books reviewed on your blog. I'm intrigued by some of the urban fantasy books which I might try.

    1. UF was my thing in 2019... I have a feeling it'll continuing being my favourite genre in 2020!

  2. I have read none of these, but I remember adding Bar Next Door to my TBR, because you made it sound really, really good. That's a good number of hits, though.

  3. I still have Unearthed in my TBR and here's hoping I'd actually get to read it by next year. Also The Guild Codex: Demonized Series.

    1. Demonized is awesome! OMG I'm dying in expectation of the next one! Hope you get the change to read them.

  4. You make me realize that I am probably missing out not getting to Annette's books yet. Yes to Ilona Andrews and the new Cecy Robson series. I will eventually stop being a wuss about the Rebecca Yarros bringing me to tears or the last Chaos book and read them. :)

    Great list, Nicci!

    1. Definitely missing out! The Guild Codex series (both of them) are my favourites but Red Winter is also fabulous! Was less of a fan of Steel and Stone but I think that was because I was expecting something different from what it was... Hope you give them a try!

  5. Oh, I need to read Wild Like the Wind too. Sapphire Flames was also a favorite of mine! :)

  6. So happy to see The Cruel Prince made your favorites of the year! :) The Last Letter is still on my TBR. I want to read it so badly but I also know it’s probably going to destroy me.

    1. It'll definitely destroy! The book is beautiful but seems designed to destroy your soul before putting it back together with a huge piece missing!

  8. I am also really enjoying the Guido Codex Series and Slaying Monsters for the Feeble also made my list of bets books :). I haven't read her Red Winter trilogy yet, but I have a copy of the box set and plan to read it eventually.

    1. I struggled with the beginning of Red Winter... It was very info heavy but it takes off in a BIG way so stick with it! :)

    Happy new Year!

  10. I still have so many books I want to read this year. I'm putting more and more in my wish list to read this year.

  11. Those are interesting choices! I'll have to try out Annette Marie myself if she made such an impact on you! My 2019 list was pretty small compared to past years.

    1. Yeay! I'm glad to hear you're thinking to try out Annette Marie's books! She's awesome.

  12. The Guild Codex series have been on my radar for a while now. I keep hoping my library will get them in, but I'm starting to think I'll have to take a chance and just buy them. They just sound so good!
