Inasmuch as 2018 was a year of personal growth and development for my book choices, 2019 … is not. Last year, I read books like Ian Cron’s The Road Back to You and Susan Cain’s Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking. I wrote mini-reviews of all the books I read last year. The tone of what I’m reading in 2019 has been — it’s just been different. And fun.
Here’s what I’m reading in 2019
In 2019, I’ve been reading gobs of science fiction and fantasy.
I’ve re-read the entire Harry Potter series and was reminded of how much I love these characters and (most of) Rowling’s story telling.
The couple of books of John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War series are really good. I’m excited about the rest of them, though I’ve been warned that there’s a definite dip in the middle.
I can best describe the Barry J. Hutchinson’s Space Team series as Douglas Adams meets the the A-Team. The first three books are fun, comical, and adventuresome.
But perhaps what I’ve enjoyed the most has been Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. It has depth and weirdness in endless supply. I also enjoyed Gaiman’s Stardust for its fantastical whimsy.
So if you need some distraction in your life from your daily goings on, I can recommend that you delve into some of these.
