All Books I Read in 2019 – Ranked from Best to Worst

Hi all πŸ’•

Today I get to share with you a post that I have been wanting to do for a long time! I’m diving back into 2019 reading for a bit, and I’m going to be going through all of the 85 books I read in 2019, ranked from my favourite to my least favourite!

This post is going to be a massive, delicious list of books without any explanations, ratings or rantings! The list is mainly based on my enjoyment of each book, in comparison to everything else I read in 2019. If you are interested in getting more information and my full thoughts, take a peek at my other end of the year posts:

Best Books of 2019

Worst Books of 2019

You can also find a review of most of these books on my Goodreads page (I’d love to be your friend there too!).

Also keep your eyes peeled for these posts that are coming up soon:

  • 2019 Bookish Statistics
  • 20 for 2020: A year-long TBR & Reading challenges

I was lucky in 2019 and I mostly enjoyed the books that I read 😊 Even though something is lower on this scale doesn’t mean that I hated the book!

That’s everything I read in 2019 ranked from my favourite to my least favourite. Have you read any of these? Do you agree with my ranking? Would you change something around??

I was surprised how easy it was to rank my reads in the end! And as a major list lover, I can definitely see myself doing it again πŸ˜„

Would it be difficult for you to rank your reads? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Thank you so much for reading!

  1. Oh, this is such a cool post! I honestly love lists so much πŸ˜„πŸ’— I’m also very much looking forward to reading your upcoming posts πŸ₯° I actually wanted to start reading The Crown’s Game sometime, but I’m not sure how much I’ll like it, I’ve barely heard anything about it nowadays 😱

  2. 85 books…o.0 Wow

    I noticed our reading tastes are very different, so I don’t have much to compare on this list πŸ˜€ I find ranking books to be difficult, haha. And the book covers. Wow. Some beyoootiful pieces here!

    1. That’s really interesting! I definitely feel lists like these can really give a good perspective on someone’s reading tastes – it’s literally everything I read last year haha. I honestly thought that the ranking would be difficult, but once I gave every book a category like low, med or high, then it was suddenly easy to rank the books within those categories πŸ˜…
