2019 was a surprisingly anemic reading year for me. On the heels of an astounding 2018, when all is said and done, I’ll be lucky to crack 80 books by month’s end. Sure, impressive for some, but not this usually avid reader. I don’t know. Chalk it up to the fact that I was showrunning a new series. Or juggling various development projects. Or simply the fact that, following the insane number of books I read last year, I was feeling a little burnt out. But I’d love to get back at it in 2020 and, at the very least, break 100.
I have about a half dozen books recommended to me by friends that I still have to get to, but I’d love to hear from you, dear readers. What were the best books YOU read in 2019?
Oh yeah, fantasy football is also partly to blame for my rather poor reading effort on the year.
