2019 Favorite Author List {read}


2019 Favorite Author List {read} is a great place to get ideas for your TBR List for 2020. I started sharing this list in the 2014 Favorite Author List {read} and the 2015 Favorite Author List {read}. You might also enjoy  My Top Christian Fiction Authors in 2013 and Fiction Authors Index, which lists the titles read.

My favorites have evolved somewhat during this time, with some new ones being added. In 2019 I pushed hard to read all of the books by my favorite authors. I have a few more to read in 2020. I did finish reading the Miss Read books (the second time), which I highly recommend.

Perhaps I should clarify, this is for fiction only. You might like to read my list of Top Reads in 2019 {book reviews} to see the reviews of the books I read by these authors.

Without further ado, here are my lists!
