I’m joining hosts Girlxoxo, Traveling with T and Estella’s Revenge for their annual #AMonthofFaves blog event – “a fun way to recap the year that was” with “every day of the event (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) planned out” and a link-up on all their blogs. Tomorrow’s topic (that I’m posting today because of The Sunday Salon) is “Favorite Books Read This Year.”
As I mentioned in my last post, I had six books that I rated five stars on Goodreads. Pictured above are those six. They are:
- The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
- The River Why by David James Duncan
- The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
- American Street by Ibi Zoboi
- Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue
Tanya recommended the last one. The Lord of the Rings and The River Why were rereads. The Poet X: I listened to on audiobook as read by the author, the format I highly recommend in this case, even though this was the lone audiobook I finished this year. As for the rest, I just highly recommend them all.
What were your favorite books that you read this year? Share in the comments or provide a link to your post in the comments.
This concludes my participation in #AMonthofFaves this year. To see my other posts in the themed month, visit this link. To see what my favorite TV series and movies were from this year, visit here. And for my top 25 albums of the year, visit yesterday’s post.
On Tuesday, I’ll be posting My First Book of the Year with Sheila and others (including Laurel-Rain Snow, who reminded me with her post that I read this morning that I need to e-mail Sheila a photo of me with my first book; thanks, Laurel for the reminder!). I’ll also be posting my goals for 2019, the year I turn 50 (in June). Stay tuned!

I’ve heard so many good things about The Poet X audiobook. I read it with my eyeballs and enjoyed it in that format, so probably won’t revisit but I’m glad to hear you liked the audio so much.
I’ll never get tired of rereading LOTR!
Agreed. Since I was a teenager, I’ve reread several times, but it had been probably at least five years (GASP!).
Those all look excellent! The Poet X is on my list for a reading challenge, good to know it’s good on audio since I’m always trying to listen to more of those too.
I think you’ll like it…and thanks again for the recommendation of Behold the Dreamers. Both my wife and I enjoyed it.
OK – The PoetX is going on my audiobook cue! And loving the diversity in your list.
