As the 2010s concluded, staff at many magazines, websites, and libraries took a look back and chose the best books of the decade. It's fascinating to review the variety of new stories that emerged during the 2010s and to see which ones we're still talking about. Reviewing these lists is also a wonderful way to add to your TBR list. Time Magazine, the Boston Public Library, Elle Magazine, Lithub, and goodreads each curated a list. There's some crossover (A Visit from the Goon Squad and My Brilliant Friend showed up on several lists), but a lot of variety as well. If you're more curious about the best books of 2019, Lithub compiled a list of books that appeared on the most 2019 best book lists.
Here at the Bedford Public Library, the staff compiled a list of the books we most enjoyed reading during 2019. You may view that list here.
