Recommending Some Diverse Books I’ve Read This Year!

Sadly, I’m running out of post ideas and burning out.

So I hope you can forgive me if this post isn’t very good and I’m less active these days. I scrapped a bunch of post ideas before I finally settled on recommending a few diverse books I’ve read this year. This is only a small selection of diverse books worth reading, and I could really do better at reading and promoting diverse books (we all could). But I hope you’ll find some books to pick up here!

But bottom line, it’s a good rating for me. And today I’m going to recommend 10 books that I gave 3 stars.

Top 5 Best Books I Read in 2019 // Last Year’s Saving Graces

2019 was not a good year in terms of finding new favorites.

I only had three 5-star reads out of 78 books. And most were not at the all-time fave level, even though I still love them a lot. That being said, I’ve chosen (and ranked!) five of the best books I read in 2019, and Iโ€™m gonna gush about them today.
