Happy New Year!

I know posting this at near the end of January is a bit late, but I’ve been having some challenges with Mental Health so I couldn’t post this earlier.

Anyway, I thought I would do a quick round-up of my favourite books of 2019 and also share what plans I have for 2020 with Bookish Connections.

If you want to keep up with my book reading do check out my Goodreads profile which I’m keeping more up to date than my social media channels or this blog haha!

This post is all about my favourite books from 2019!

BEST AUDIOBOOK

City of girls - Elizabeth Gilbert

City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

I know everyone would expect me to say Becoming by Michelle Obama, but while I didn’t like all of City of Girls, the audiobook was insanely good!

BEST AUTHOR OF COLOUR

Djinn Patrol by Deepa Anappara

Djinn Patrol by Deepa Anappara has to be my favourite book by an Author of Colour followed closely by This Green and Pleasant Land by Ayisha Malik

BEST FICTION

Circe Madeline Miller

Circe by Madeline Miller has to the Best Fiction book, in my opinion, I read and listened to the AudioBook and I LOVED it!

It’s an epic for sure.

BEST NON FICTION

The Bullet Journal Method

The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll

A late entry to the category, but this book inspired me to actually just start Bullet Journaling and despite failing at the first hurdle, I’m determined to just start again!

And that’s my round-up for 2019!

From 2020, I hope to continue reading and writing book reviews, but for the most part, they will be short reviews on Instagram so if you’re not following me there then please do!

I’m Bookish Connections on there.

And lastly, I’ll be doing more posts here alongside full-length Book Reviews.

Last year I read 23 books out of 35 which I had challenged myself to, and this year I’m only challenging myself to read 12 but hope to smash that target!

What books or topics would you like me to write about next?
