Our final reviewer top reads list comes from Svetlana Libenson! You can check back and read our other favorite reads of 2019: Debbie Wiley Danielle Dresser Jessica Grogan Miranda Owen Teresa Cross Now, here’s Svetlana’s list: It’s that time of year again: time to reflect on the last twelve months, to make resolutions, and to welcome in a new decade, 2020. I can hardly believe its 2020. It seems like only yesterday that 2019 had begun, and now in a couple of days we will walk into the 2020s. When it comes to literature, my taste runs towards historical fiction, domestic suspense, multicultural fiction and contemporary fiction, and 2019 had its good moments in those categories.  In no particular order, I will share eight of my favorite 2019 reads as well along with some honorable mentions. MIRACLE CREEK by Angie Kim was a recent read for me, but it’s one that I’ll think of whenever I remember 2019.

Ainsley determines that Reed’s gaming hell is keeping her family’s matchmaking business from being respectable and therefore profitable and begins a war with Reed in an attempt to close him down. This was a fantastic enemies-to-lovers tale where the hero and heroine take their time getting to know each other rather than falling into insta-lust.

Some of our reviewers will be sharing their top reads of 2019 from now through the end of the year! Today’s list is from Fresh Fiction Editorial Manager Danielle Dresser. 2019 was an awesome year for books. I’m grateful I have the opportunity to work with books every single day. In additional to being the editorial manager of Fresh Fiction, I’ve also started working closely with Love’s Sweet Arrow, the romance independent bookstore outside of Chicago. I’ve taken my love of books and cultivated a fulfilling career within the world of literature, and I’m so pleased to be able to share with you some of my favorite reads of the year.  I did my best to read widely and outside of my comfort zone – for me, that meant reading nonfiction and graphic novels (which I did do! Check out my Good Reads page here: But I couldn’t stray too far away from my love of romance and literary fiction, which is what makes up the majority of my Top Reads of 2019.  Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert – This has to be, hands-down, the book I’ve recommended the most this year.
