Books of 2019

This year was a struggle for reading! I had a tough pregnancy (gestational diabetes, hyperemesis gravidarum) that made it hard for me to read words on a page without feeling ill.

Here are my favorite books of 2019:

  1. Special Exits by Joyce Farmer (graphic novel)
  2. The Descent of Alette by Alice Notley (epic story in verse)
  3. We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson (horror)

Some runners up:

  1. Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather
  2. The Vegetarian by Han Kang
  3. East of the Sun and West of the Moon by Kay Nielsen
  4. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
  5. Circe by Madeline Miller
