Editor's Choice collection for 2019

These are the books that I reviewed in 2019 that I found particularly entertaining and engaging, and some of them taught me things that I did not know. Many of these titles were published recently, while others have been in print for some time. They are all either stand-alone titles, or the first title in a series, and all of them would make wonderful gifts for a birthday or for the holiday season. Enjoy!
