Here's a curated list of the top books to read for 2019. Most of these already have tons of great reviews by people who have read them pre-release. I'll keep adding to this list as the year progresses. If you have a book you would like to recommend, please Contact Us, and I'll consider adding it to this page. The only requirement is that the release date is sometime during 2019.
