My reading list 2019

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!
