As is my usual M.O., I’m late to the party. At least when it comes to things like round-ups and the such. (I always make actual deadlines when I give them to someone else. It’s my own deadlines I give myself I have issues with.) Now that everyone else has given their year end round ups and thoughts, here I am. For those that are curious, I’m listing out my top 10 posts of 2019.
Once again, some of my older reviews got a lot of traction. So, instead of listing my top 10 posts of the year, I’m listing the 5 that got the most views in 2019 that were not from 2019 along with the 5 that got the most views that are actually from 2019. I’m also not including any of my Top Ten Tuesday posts, as they seemed to get a lot of my views in 2019, which was my first year participating.
OLD POSTS STILL GETTING LOVE
#5 – Monthly Mash-Up #5 (October 2014)
I have no idea what draws the interwebs to this post, it’s old and not overly interesting. Maybe it’s my cute kitty? It was fun looking back, though. Especially because it reminded of my love of Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. Love it!
#4 – Show Me (January 2018)
The great thing about going back to these older posts is remembering a book or author I love. I realize I haven’t read anything from Abigail Strom in almost 2 years, which is a shame. I always enjoy her stories.
#3 – Crazy in Love (October 2017)
Another one that confuses me. I didn’t love this book so I’m not sure why it keeps getting traffic. Maybe it’s the title getting hits and leading people to the post?
#2 – The Chesapeake Bride (August 2017)
The second year in a row this review got a lot of looks. In fact, it got even more views in 2019 than it had in 2018 or when it was originally posted. I must say, I love this cover every time I see it again.
#1 – Cowboy Christmas Blues (March 2018)
This has been my most viewed review since I posted it almost 2 years ago. It consistently gets traffic every week, sometimes daily. It’s a great book, a great series, and one of my favorite authors so I have not problem with that.
TOP POSTS OF 2019
#5 – Claimed (Dark Protectors)
What a great series. And with this cover, can you blame people for clicking on this post?
#4 – Twice in a Blue Moon
This was my second book by this writing team, and I’m so glad I gave them another chance. While I liked the first book I read by them enough, it didn’t blow me away. I loved this book so much!
A book club pick that I wasn’t overly fond of, with mixed feelings from some of the others in my book club. Another great cover, though.
Here we are, 10 months after I reviewed this short story, and still no cover. It was included in the paperback copy of Cowboy Honor I read and really enjoyed this Christmas tale.
This story ended up so much more than I thought it would be. I notice from my review that I said I wouldn’t wait so long before reading the next book in this series. Well, guess what? I haven’t read it yet. That’s me for ya!
Just like last year, I’ll be back in the next week or so with a total recap of my reading year. I’ll also include my reading and life intentions for 2020.
