In a post last year I wrote about how my New Year’s resolution in 2018 was to read at least 1 book a month. In 2019 I wanted to continue in the same fashion, and set the same goal. Did I acheive it? Yes I did! 2018 was definitely a better year reading-wise for me, but I take that as an indicator of how much other fun stuff was happening in 2019.
I thought given the extra time we all are given at the moment this was a good time to share the books I read last year. If you want even more book titles then definitely check out my post from last year here.
Books I read in 2019:
Books in English:
Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney
Normal People by Sally Rooney
Your Erroneous Zones by Dr. Wayne D. Wyer
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
Your Writing Coach: From Concept to Character, from Pitch to Publication by Jürgen Wulff
When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times by Pema Chödrön
Books in Norwegian:
Jeg nekter å tenke av Lotta Elstad
Historie om et ekteskap av Geir Gulliksen
Null av Gina Cornelia Pedersen
Like sant som jeg er virkelig av Hanne Ørstavik
Kinderwhore av Maria Kjos Fonn
Grunnleggende plantediversitet av Kathleen Rani Hagen
Hver gang du forlater meg av Linnea Myhre
So what were my favorites? Sally Rooney comes on the top of the list. I finished those both of those books practically in 1 sitting. The Power of Now and Your Erroneous Zones are both reads I definitely recommend for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge on thought patterns and breaking out of bad habits.
For my Norwegians; Kinderwhore, Jeg nekter å tenke, Historie om et eksteskap and Like sant som jeg er virkelig were my favorites of the books from our fellow countrymen (pointing out that 3 of those books were written by women; girlpower!)
I hope this lis added some new books on your radar. I’d love to hear what kind of books you have been reading!
