Advent Book Calendar 2019

It’s December, the time when we are getting ready for the holidays and reflect on the past year. Last year Jen and I ran a series of posts where we highlighted 24 books we loved. We are doing something similar this year, but with less posting. We both made a list of our top 10 favourite reads in 2019 and we’ll reshare them one at a day. If you missed a day, you can always come back here and check it out!

We had a really busy year as we took part in SPFBO5, which demanded a lot of our reading time. That being said, we still read quite a lot of awesome books, and getting it down to 10 wasn’t easy to do.

Happy reading peeps, keep checking back, I will update this post as the month progresses. We hope you will have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, probably with as many books as you can get your hands on!

Honourable Mentions

We’ve read a number of awesome books in 2019, but we couldn’t put ALL of them on our top 10 lists. We still felt like there were a couple of books we’d like to give a shout out to, becuase they were memorable in one way or another.

*It would have been cheating if I put this on the top10 list as this is one of my all time favourite books and I reread it this year. And probably will reread it a few more times during my life. But I still wanted to give it a shout out, because, well, it’s my freaking favouite book.


Blogger Love

We know that we wouldn’t be where we are without the support of the authors, publishers and our fellow bloggers. We have good and bad days and some days we feel like we are screaming into a void unheard and unseen – or at least I do have those days – but that’s not true. You see us and we see you! Jen and I wanted to say thank you to a few of our good friends for their support this past year and their friendship in the form of an Amazon eGiftcard. Please take a moment and check out their blogs, follow them on Twitter and give them some love, because these guys absolutely deserve it!
