2019 was a hell of a year in that it mostly sucked. What didn’t suck? Books. I read books this year that I know I will continue to revisit for years to come. Funny, badass, sweet, exciting, and beautiful, these stories ran the gamut and did not disappoint. Except for the few that did, but that’s irrelevant. Below the cut is all the books I loved, and some that I did not, in this, the Year of Acute Misery.
