Since it’s almost the end of the decade, I didn’t want to just share my favourite reads of 2019, but also my top 25 of the best books I read during the past 10 years.
They are (more of less) in order of when I read them. Which is kind of funny, I think, because it shows how much my reading has shifted over the past few years.
By the way, this doesn’t quite span 10 years, but starts in 2014, when I first started my Goodreads account and started tracking my reading.
