So, it’s time to really enjoy and indulge in these quiet days at the end of the year, and, if you can, find some time for yourself to reset and refresh before 2020 kicks off.

With the heavenly image of curling up in front of the fire with a cup of hot cocoa and a new book in mind, we have rounded up 12 of the best-selling books from 2019 that are definitely worth a read. From former first lady Michelle Obama’s memoir to novels that topped the New York Time’s best-seller list for weeks, you can’t go wrong when cracking open one of these books.

All are currently available on Amazon, so grab one or two of these great reads to dive into when you need a break from all of the holiday mayhem.
