Best Books of 2019

Best Read: One of my last and best reads of the year. Devoured it and now want to read it more leisurely to see how Madeline Miller takes this minor mention from the Odyssey and creates a rich, complex character.


Authentic Voices: Fierce young writers who are writing about their lives and also showing how social media can be a force for good. I follow them all on Instagram and am excited to be able to follow their careers from the beginning.

On The Come Up
With the Fire On High
Dear Martin
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Good Reads: Engaging, thoughtful, funny

The Last Witchfinder
The Barrytown Trilogy
Where the Crawdads Sing (read it in one night!)

And for #10, one of those books that finds you when you need it:

When the Heart Waits
