Favourite Books of 2019

I’ve read 70 books this year, far more than the 45 I had targeted to read. I started the year with the first book of The Discovery of Witches trilogy, though I still have the final book to read. I will be finishing the year reading The Hunting Party, a thriller set in a remote castle in the Scottish Highlands during the New Year. A special mention to a few book series I have read during the year, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and also The Queen of the Tearling.
