Bookish Blog Hop summer hop: Favorite Book of 2019 so far

Bookish Blog Hops_ Summer 2019 Hop

Question: What is your favorite book of 2019 so far?

Brandy Potter (1)

My favorite is a re-read, but I actually have now purchased the book. It is The Supernaturals by David L. Goleman. I first listened to this book on Audible and was drawn in so far that I couldn’t listen in the car anymore because I almost got into two accidents. The characters are human with flaws and fears. There are those you love to hate, those you hate to love and those you just love. If you like The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, this will be a great read for you.

“Built at the turn of the twentieth century by one of the richest and most powerful men in the world tucked away in the pristine Pocono Mountains, Summer Place, a retreat for the rich and famous, seems the very essence of charm and beauty, “a scene borrowed from a wondrous fairytale of gingerbread houses, bright forests, and glowing, sunny meadows.”

But behind the yellow and white trimmed exterior lurks an evil, waiting to devour the unwary…

Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy’s investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with the event. But Summer Place has other plans…

As Summer Place grows stronger, Kennedy, along with the paranormal ghost hunting team, The Supernaturals, sets out to confront…and if possible, destroy…the evil presence dwelling there.”

So what do my fellow authors and bloggers have to say?

I’m going to pick 3 for this answer as I devoured all three books in the Me Before You series this year. I loved them all, and couldn’t wait to find out would happen to Lousia Clark next. I loved the characters, and I loved how thought-provoking each book was. The whole series is definitely one that stays with you long after finishing the books.

Looking at the record on Goodreads of books I’ve read this year… it’s woefully short! But out of all the books I’ve read so far… I’m going to have to say that
The Queen of Diamonds by Patricia Loofbourrow has been my favorite. I just love the world-building and the characters and the intrigue that’s going on with that series–it just doesn’t ever quit!

I will say that You Left Me No Choice by Kelly Blanchard will probably end up being among the favorites, if not the favorite of the year, when I finish it. (Though there are a few books on my TBR that I’m over the moon about!) It’s pretty good so far!


Haha, you know picking just one favorite book is basically impossible, right? The books that stood out for me in 2019 and that were released this year (at least as audiobooks) were
Heartbreak Warfare, an extremely emotional love triangle Military Romance, and Salt Magic Skin Magic, a dark fairytale M/M Romance.

Cats Luv CoffeeI’ve had a few five paw reads this year, but the one that I can’t wait to reread is House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig! It’s a dark fantasy retelling of the Twelve Dancing Princesses by The Brothers Grimm. It’s gothic and wonderful. I got it as an ARC read so it’s actually not out until August. I can’t wait to purchase it for my own bookshelf!

June 7One of the best books I’ve read this year is After the Green Withered by Kristin Ward. It is very different from what I normally read, maybe that’s one reason it stands out so much for me. It is a dystopian novel set in a world of severe drought. Water has become the currency and people’s paths are pretty much chosen for them based on where they live. Life revolves around saving water! But, all isn’t as it seems. And it’s that part that made this book so compelling! It is thought-provoking, disturbing and highly creative!

  1. I didn’t join this one as it was too hard to choose! Lots of great ideas, particularly keen to try After the Green Withered.
