The Best Books I Read In 2019
My 2019 resolution was to read more books. To help, I managed to keep a record of every book I read this year as an highlight on my Instagram profile. Click here for the full list, or read on for the five best books I read this year.
I raced through all 1000 pages of this gripping, poignant and beautifully imagined depiction of the last days of the West. Click here.
Proper feat of literary ventriloquism, this. A blackly comic tale of hubristic Victorian colonialism and the Tasmanian genocide. Much, much funnier than that sounds. Click here.
A perfect novella with, in Mattie Ross, one of the best female voices in American literature. Click here.
I was left somewhat in awe at the discomfiting genius of this bleak fictional reimagining of the last days of the Neanderthals. Click here.
The author I most enjoyed discovering this year. Could easily have also chosen Butcher’s Crossing, but the technical brilliance of this retelling of the story of Augustus gave it the nod. Click here.
