I keep track of books I read and movies I watch throughout the year in my planner, so I was able to go back through the list (and the ratings I gave them) and pick my favorites.
I read some great books in 2019, but I think my very favorite was Polaris Rising by Jessie Mihalik. I have the next book in the series, Aurora Blazing, in my Kindle app.
“Polaris Rising is space opera at its best, intense and addictive, a story of honor, courage, betrayal, and love. Jessie Mihalik is an author to watch.”–Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author
My favorite movie?
No question, my favorite movie of 2019 was Snowbound for Christmas! But that’s probably cheating a little bit.
When a high-powered CEO gets trapped by a snowstorm with his ultra-efficient executive assistance he can no longer deny he has feelings for her as more than an employee.
So, my favorite movie NOT based on one of my books?
I absolutely loved Murder Mystery, which is a Netflix film, and I lost count of how many times I rewatched it. So funny and smart and silly.
A New York cop and his wife go on a European vacation to reinvigorate the spark in their marriage, but end up getting framed and on the run for the death of an elderly billionaire.
And while writing this, I’m watching my first movie of 2020: Mr. Right! I love Anna Kendrick like crazy.
