Similar to my post the other day listing what Rotten Tomatoes deemed as the best flicks of the former year, I thought I would write a post regarding the best books of 2019. Books, to me, are even more subjective than movies are, so as I stated in the best movies post, keep in mind that this is one interpretation of the best books of 2019. This particular ranking comes from Indigo.
- Empire of Wild by Cherie Dimaline
- The Testaments: A Novel by Margaret Atwood
- From the Ashes: My Story of Being Metis, Homeless and Finding my Way by Jesse Thistle
- The Huntress: A Novel by Kate Quinn
- Three Women by Lisa Taddeo
- Daisy Jones & The Six: A Novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid
- The Body: A Guide for Occupants by Bill Bryson
- The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
- 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week by Tiffany Shlain
- The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead
- Whisper Network: A Novel by Chandler Baker

Indigo’s list goes much further than 20 listings, but I decided to cut it off here. Check out the link above to see the list in its entirety.
Revisiting my statement about this list being subjective, I personally haven’t read any of these books, but I’m curious if you have. Comment down below some of your favourite books from 2019!
