What I've been reading in 2019


I don't read a whole lot, but this year I've tried to make more of an effort to read books. There's something about getting lost in a good book that can transport you to a whole new world and it can take you away from the stresses of everyday life. So, today I thought I'd share with you what I've loved reading in 2019 (so far). I was originally planning to do a monthly reads, but I don't read often enough, maybe in future I will, but for now, this will do.

I haven't included any summaries in this post, I figured if you like the look of a book you can just click the link and have a browse. Forgive me and my laziness.

Everything I never told you by Celeste Ng:

I loved this book, it was thoughtful, emotional and tense at the same time. I'd definitely recommend it.

The Promise by Teresa Driscoll:

I found this book slow to start and was difficult to get into, but by the half way mark I was hooked.

Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh:

Let Me Lie is an intense psychological thriller that I couldn't get enough of.

Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman:

I loved loved loved reading this book and it's what got me back into reading again. 

You by Caroline Kepnes:

I watched the Netflix series and I thought it was great so I figured I'd give the book a go. Wow, the book is so much better than the series. 

It's hard to pick a favourite out of the bunch, but I'd probably say I found it easiest to read you as I already had the character's visualised in my head from the Netflix series. The one I enjoyed the most however , is probably Everything I never Told You. It wasn't too long of a book and I loved the story-telling.

  1. I haven't read any of these books, but I'm a big fan of psychological thrillers myself :) I am like mid-way through You on Netflix, I had no clue that it was based on a book! Thanks for sharing x

  2. I've read Elinor Oliphant is Completely Fine and it got me back into reading too! I found the twist at the end so mind-blowing and the general story had me hooked too. It took me a little while to get really into it though as I found the beginning to be a bit slow. Lovely post! xx
