Since the end of March marks the first quarter of 2019, this seemed like a good time to round up a few favorite reads of 2019. I haven’t been reading nearly as much as I wanted or hoped to, although this is partly because I’ve been trying to clear out my TBR and have been setting down a ton of books unread. While this isn’t my favorite reading experience, it does mean that the books I’ve finished have generally been pretty strong reads! This list is almost a third of my total books finished at this point.
I am really proud of the fact that I’ve managed to stick with reviewing almost every book I finish. I’m giving myself a pass for novellas, graphic novels, and some chapter books and trying to include those in shorter reviews instead. It’s one of my goals for the year to keep this up as much as I can. All of the links below go to my reviews.
The Girl with the Dragon Heart by Stephanie Burgis
Begone the Raggedy Witches by Celine Kiernan
The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie
Always Coming Home by Ursula K Le Guin
A Spark of White Fire by Sangu Mandanna
I, Claudia by Mary McCoy
Merci Suarez Changes Gears by Meg Medina
The Winged Histories by Sofia Samatar (the only reread on this list, but I couldn’t resist adding it)
