WHSmith Books of the Year
2019 has been another phenomenal year for new book releases, with both debut authors and established writers introducing us to new characters and stories that have stayed with us long after turning their final pages.
And so when it came to asking the buyers and bookworms of WHSmith about the best books of 2019, the debate was as controversial and high-spirited as you might expect. In the end, however, there were several books that stood out to everyone in the room as more than worthy of the title of WHSmith’s Book of the Year.
Take a look at our winners for Fiction, Non-Fiction, Kids’ Hardbacks and Kids’ Paperbacks to check out the must-read books of 2019.
