Blogmas Day #7: The Brittany Awards // Adult

the-brittany-awards

Welcome to The Brittany Awards!

The Brittany Awards are my annual end-of-the-year lists to celebrate my favorite books of this year. For 2019, I have divided my list into three preliminary categories (adult, children’s/young adult contemporary, and children’s/young adult fantasy) and one overall favorites category. For each category, I will select my top three favorite books of the year and an honorable mention (for some categories). For the final category, I will select my top three favorite overall books. Any books with a review will have the review linked to the book’s title.

Today, I will discuss my favorite adult books. More and more, I have found myself branching out of my comfort zone, young adult, in favor of books targeted to adult. Here are my top three favorites:

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

When I started reading Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, I was getting the hype. However, when I reached the second half of the book, I understood why so many people gave it rave reviews. The emotion in the second half of this story is so well written, it really hits you in the heart. I gave this book five out of five stars.

  • Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Daisy Jones & The Six

I saw Daisy Jones and The Six everywhere online. Taylor Jenkins Reid is an author that I wanted to read something from, so I was excited when Daisy Jones and the Six appeared in my local library. This book was written in a very unique format, but it worked so well for the story. Like Eleanor Oliphant, this book took me a little bit to get into, but once I did, I was so sad when I finished it. I gave Daisy Jones and the Six five out of five stars.

The Bride Test (The Kiss Quotient, #2)

I didn’t completely buy into the hype surrounding The Kiss Quotient, but I was much more impressed with this book. The Bride Test had me hooked from start to finish. From the characters to the story, I was completely invested. I also appreciated the author’s personal connection, as mentioned in the author’s note at the end of the book. I gave this book five out of five stars.

What are some of the best books that you read in 2019?
