My Favorite Books of 2019

2019 was such a great reading year for me. I read and listened to so many good books! But my favorite book of 2019 was the audiobook version of Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte, narrated by Thandie Newton. I’ve loved the book since I first read it many many years ago, but this audiobook version was outstanding and it made me love the book even more.

So add this version of Jane Eyre to the nine books below for my TOP TEN for 2019!

So, dear friends, I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR, and happy reading in 2020!

    Absolutely thrilled to see The Magic Apple Tree on your list, it’s one of my all time favourite books. And you’re making me think that it’s time reread Cider with Rosie. I read Laurie Lee’s book about walking in Spain a year or two ago and thought it was excellent.
    Happy New Year to you too, Robin.

      I absolutely loved The Magic Apple Tree, Cath! I bought a couple of her other books (not the mysteries…yet) and look forward to reading them in the new year. Also, I put the Laurie Lee you recommended for “Spain” on my Wanderlust challenge list, so I’ll be reading more of his beautifully written books, too! So many books to look forward to! Happy New Year, my friend!

    Happy New Year to you, Robin! Nice list. I’ve only read Jane Eyre and 84 Charing Cross Road. Don’t think I’ve ever actually read Pollyanna the book. Looking forward to hearing what you read in 2020!

    Happy New Year, Robin. I’ve had that Jane Eyre audio on my wish list for a long time… glad to hear you loved it. Thanks again for the 84, Charing Cross Road audio recommendation. It was the perfect end for 2019. I enjoyed Sweet Bean Paste, too. I look forward to following your 2020 reading.

      Happy New Year to you, too, JoAnn! I so agree that the audio of 84, Charing Cross Road was a delightful way to end the year. Here’s to another year of great reading for us! Cheers!

      Nan, each of those has become a forever favorite for me, too. I know I heard about The Magic Apple Tree and Greengates from you…probably all of them, for that matter! ❤️

    Yay, Book Love was a favorite of mine too. Actually, if I remember correctly I may have read your review of it and that’s what prompted me to read it in the first place. So many interesting books on your favorites list that I’ll have to look into!

      Les, it’s a real treat! I hadn’t planned it ahead of time, but found it on Audible and couldn’t resist. It’s one I’ll listen to again…and again.
