Books I’ve Read in 2019

I like to read at least one book per week. This year, I’m also making a serious effort to read stuff that normally wouldn’t grab me, which means you might even find a few YA, chick lit, and pop-mainstream titles on this list. Hey, why not, right? I’ve come to believe that every book (the good, the bad, and even the downright ugly) has something valuable to offer.
