Year of reading 2019: Part 1 – My top 18

Year of reading 2019
Part 1
 My top 18

To follow my tradition, here is part 1 of my yearly recap.
There is a total of 3 parts:

  1. my favorites, with my usual categories, see here below
  2. my stats
  3. my fun list with titles

If 2018 was my most pathetic year in the last decade, with only 77 books read, 2019 is my best year, with 118 books! I believe it justifies the 18 categories as shown here below, as I read enough in each category to list an awesome book in it.

The final choice is based on the quality of the book, on how it resonated with me and my own experience, and on how it stayed with me. Some of these books may actually have got only 4 out 5 Eiffel Towers at the time I read them.
