  1. These look so nice! I’m a big fan of the Murderbot books but I’m a little behind. Miss Moriarty looks fantastic too- I LOVE the covers those books get as well.

  2. The Love Hypothesis made my year end list too. How could it not? I saw some books I previously read and LOVED up there too – One Day in December, The Flatshare, Shipped, Me Before You — KC shares many book faves with me.

    I didn’t get my act together in time to participate this year… I’m bummed. I need to plan better next year. Wild Sign and The Love Hypothesis are both in my top 10 for certain. Looking at the other lists – I also enjoyed Darynda’s book (that series is so good so far), and a few more on Sophia’s list, but I have to look at my Goodreads to see which are top 10. Maybe I’ll get a list out by the end of the year. Thanks for hosting again!

    • It’s no trouble to host as I want to do this rather than reviews this week to give us all a break. And this is FUN! I love to see people’s picks and will enjoy yours when you do a list. This is the 3rd year after I couldn’t find anyone else doing it in 2019 and it would be fun even without the linkups but that gets so many more great ideas and lists to see.

  4. Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood is on my want to read list. I am glad to see it made your top ten list, Anne. These are all great lists, actually. I see many somethings on every list I want to read. And several authors I have read before and enjoyed. I haven’t read any of the titles mentioned though, sadly. Oh well, more to look forward to, right?

  5. Sophia, many thanks for including my book on your list! I’m so grateful The Year in Between brought you some joy this year — and I’m deeply honored to be in such exalted company!
