The Belgian Reviewer’s top 10 of 2019


I’m finally ready to share my top 10 of the year. It was so difficult to choose only 10 and I made changes to this list twice but I’m happy with every book that’s on it and I’m trying not to feel too bad for the ones that should be on it too. I opted for books that were unique, orginal, with great twists and endings that really stay with me, even months after reading, so this is what you get then :-).

Of these 10 novels there are new authors for me (Søren Sveistrup, Heidi Perks, Louise Beech..), there are debut novels that really deserve to be on everyone’s readlist (The Doll Factory, The Escape Room) and there are a few authors who you can find (again and again) on previous lists of the past years (Matt Wesolowski, John Marrs).



Out of these 10 novels I read 7 in paperback and 3 in e-copy, and it’s all thanks to the wonderful publishers that I had a chance to read these amazing novels, so I’m eternally grateful for that, thank you loads if you’re reading this! I’m also extremely thankful for the e-copy that I won in a giveaway and turned out to be an unexpected revelation and an author I want to follow from now on. Last but not least, I find it really telling that I read 4 Orenda Books titles this year and 3 of them made it on the list. They have such great authors I shouldn’t be surprised really.

So what do you think, did I choose well? Any titles that are on your list as well? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Fantastic list! Changeling, Call Me Star Girl, The Passengers and Blood Song are all going to be on my best of 2019 list as well, I enjoyed The Escape Room and The Silent Patient, and the rest are on my TBR and highly anticipated… So yes, you made the right choices. 😉 Merry Christmas! xx

    • Thank you, tough decisions but I think I chose well then. Oh I really want no need to read another novel by HS Chandler. I hope she has another one (apart from her series) coming out next year! I can’t wait to see your list and compare how many I read of them 😉
