My 19 + 1 Favorite Books of 2019

It’s the time of the year to look back and reflect on what we read and what we loved. Here are my 19 favorites from 2019, plus 1 additional title (as usual). You’ll find a few family sagas, psychological thrillers and romances, books with unreliable narrators or ‘what if’ plots, as well as memoirs that will renew your faith in the resilience of the human spirit. Sit back, pick one and travel to Australia, Kentucky (with a kick-ass horseback riding group of librarians!), France, Boston, London, Chicago, New York, Alaska, the Colorado Rockies, the Hamptons, and the Caribbean. Enjoy your reading and my last blog post as a Cleveland Heights Librarian. I am retiring but definitely will not retire from reading! I hope you all keep on reading as well! Enjoy!
