Books I Read in 2019

List of Books I Read in 2019

Favorite Series for 2019: The First Law Trilogy, Joe Abercrombie

Standalone Favorite: Under Heaven, Guy Gavriel Kay

Nonfiction Favorite: The Blank Slate, Steven Pinker

Looking at this summary, I think I didn’t read enough books as I wanted to, though I achieve my target. There are short stories in the list that couldn’t be counted as a book with word counts that are less than 10k. Then there is a foreign language program. My reading list in 2018 was better.

On another note, this is the second straight year I’m having Guy Gavriel Kay in my favorite standalone read for the year.

This 2020, I am to read more novels.
