2019 in Books | A Year Reviewed | Booksmagick


2019 has been a year full of ups and downs, reading-wise. In the beginning I set myself a goal of 80 books and didn’t reach it by 2. Some months I’ve been more active than others and the last three months of the year I fell into a reading slump so deep I was only able to listen to audiobooks and barley managed some comics. Work has been demanding and at some point I really didn’t want to look at a single book in my freetime.

I ended 2019 with quitting my job as a bookseller and I’ll write another post just about that soon. 🙂 In the meantime have some stats from 2019!


Books read in total in 2019: 78

E-Books: 13

Audiobooks: 8

English books: 51 ergo 27 German books

Manga and Comics: 19

Pages read in total: 22419


Looking back at the list of books I read I see that I managed to pick up more books that I really enjoyed than books I don’t remember fondly. Surprisingly, it’s not difficult to name a favourite of the year: Six of Crows

If I had to name the worst book I read this year it’d be more of a battle because there is a handful that I read and reviewed for work I really, really didn’t like. Ah, let’s just list ’em all, in no particular order:


I’ve rediscovered some genres I hadn’t read in some time and thus forgot I liked them. Yeah, it happens. A colleague at work got me into psychological thrillers again and I was sucked up by the stories. Dark, sinister and with a touch of the supernatural. My favourites in 2019:


All in all, 2019 was a good year for books and reading and I’m looking forward to 2020 and all its new books! ❤
