My 10 favorite reads of 2019

Top Ten (1)

Hey guys! Time for the last Top Ten Tuesday of the year ( if you do not know what TTT is, you can read all about it at That Artsy Reader Girl.) !! And we are going with a classical prompt on this 31st of December: 10 favorite reads of 2019 🙂 It was not easy, and I had to ask Goodreads for help, but here is my top 10:

  1. The wise man’s fear – Patrick Rothfuss: also, my longest read of the year! I waited a while to read it but SO WORTH IT.
    1215032
  2. Lore Olympus – Rachel Smythe: this is an ongoing webcomic (I’m planning an article on the matter) and an incredible story I discovered this year. I’m just crazy about this beautiful retelling of Hades and Persephone!
    47327685
  3. The Ruin of Kings – Jenn Lyons: an incredible high fantasy adventure!
    39863237
  4. The Way of Kings – Brandon Sanderson: that is a big book if you ask for one! But such a rich universe and interesting characters!
    9329354
  5. Charmcaster – Sebastien de Castell: I’m crazy about the Spellslinger series and this third book was pretty incredible!
    36302416. sy475
  6. Un dîner avec Cary Grant – Malika Ferdjoukh: This one is French and it’s wonderful. A historical dive into New York city in the 20s and a band of young adults trying to make their life there!
    40640733
  7. Traitor to the Throne – Alwyn Hamilton: Rebel of the Sands really captured my heart with its magical world and brave characters! I could have but the entire trilogy there but well I had read book one in 2018 :p
    29739361. sy475
  8. The Mirror Visitor #4 (not yet translated in English, original title: La tempête des échos) – Christelle Dabos: This series is everything and more, it’s so complex and fascinating and you must all read it. Finally having the last book and reading it was an intense moment!
    32903085. sx318
  9. The Gilded wolves – Roshani Chokshi: Roshani’s writing style is simply stunning and I’m crazy about it! So of course, I was ecstatic to discover her latest YA… and I loved it!
    39863498
  10. Nos âmes tourmentées – Morgane Moncombe: another French book here, and a romance! Yes, a romance made it to my top 10! This one was so heartbreaking and powerful, it had to!
    50088394. sx318 sy475

That’s it for my top 10, it was hard to choose but I bet it will be even harder next year! What about you? What were your favorite books from this year?

See you for a cup,

Elise

    So many of these I’ll finally get to read in 2020! I finally got a copy of Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, and I’ve been meaning to read Lore Olympus for AGES. And I finally got Gilded Wolves, too! Great list!
