This post: best books of 2019.
I’ve been meaning to get this “best books of 2019” post on the blog for ages.
Most weeks, I’m too busy reading (and homeschooling my five kids) to actually sit down and write about reading.
Know what I mean?
But here we are at last-
A compilation of the best books of 2019.
Do you have a favorite read from 2019?
I’d love to know what it is- because I might need to read it too.

Oh, and drop your email below to opt in to new posts (like this one)-
I love compiling a great reading guide, and I know you don’t want to miss those. xoxo
These are my favorites, friends-
The best books I read in 2019.
by Charlotte Bronte
Admittedly, I’ve read very few classics as an adult.
Last fall, Jane Eyre was one of my tenth-grader’s British literature reading assignments.
I decided that was quite enough of my kids reading all the good stuff, so I borrowed Amy’s copy of Jane Eyre and read it over our Thanksgiving break.
I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting this story; I’ve since added more classic literature to my regular reading.

This isn’t the kind of book one sits and reads, really.
It’s more of a manual.
I refer to this book a lot, and my oldest daughter (the tenth grader) likes it too.
by Sarah MacKenzie
This isn’t a book I ever planned to read.
I mean, seriously- the title sounds completely ludicrous.
Last year, a friend recommended the book; I was in a tough place as a homeschooling mom so I bought a copy.
This book changed my life.
I’ve read it several times and will likely read it again.
If you love church history, you’ll want to read these.
I do love church history. The true anecdotes in these books inspired and challenged me deeply.
Both titles would make ideal morning devotionals, although I wouldn’t recommend reading them to children.
by June Casagrande
I’m totally revealing my inner nerd with this one.
But I can’t deny: I adore this book.
And, yes, I actually sit and read it.
Enjoy it, even.
If you’re a blogger, editor, or just a fellow word nerd- get the book.
But be prepared to hereafter spy typos everywhere you look.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Girls’ Club last spring.
I gleaned many insights as an introverted woman, and as the mother of two girls.
by Cloud and Townsend
Raising Great Kids is one of the books that shaped my parenting paradigm.
In fact, I’ve yet to read a book by Cloud and Townsend that I didn’t find life-changing- or, at the very least, deeply inspiring.
by Gordon Neufeld and Dr. Gabor Mate
This was another book that profoundly shaped me as a parent.
Although Hold On To Your Kids isn’t a specifically faith-based book, I feel that Christian parents would benefit from the insightful message.
