The Book Mark // Everything I Read in 2019


Written by:

When I started writing my last book post, I initially was worried that I didn’t read enough to merit a “favorite books” list. While I’m active in my building’s book club, I didn’t think I had enough time to read anything beside the Buzzfeed listicles. (And my daily Morning Brew & beloved NY Times). Well, it turns out I did read. I read quite a bit in fact. 64 books to be precise. I’m not sure whether to be proud or ashamed, or a little bit of both. I thought I would put together the complete list of all the books I’ve read this year. I’m including everything- the good, bad and definitely embarrassing – Amazon Unlimited- I’m looking at you for your terrible (in a shamefully good way) suggestions. I hope you enjoy, and maybe get inspired for next year. I know top on my list is to read more works by people , specifically women, or color. Would love to hear what your #readinggoals are!
