Every year in December, various publications and websites announce their best of the year lists in various categories, and every December I collect those lists and combine them into meta-lists. Usually I make lists of best books, movies and music (albums), but this year I added TV shows, in acknowledgement that we are in a period of unprecedented quality in television. Here are the meta-lists for 2019:
Best Films of 2019
Best Books of 2019
Best Music of 2019
Best TV Shows of 2019
It would be a great bonus to us if you would provide links to the lists you use.
I appreciate your interest in the original source lists, but for a complicated set of reasons, I decided when I began the Make Lists, Not War website not to publish the specific lists I use to make the meta-lists. That being said, a simple Google search using the terms “Best Books of 2019”, “Best Movies of 2019”, etc., will pull up most or all of the same lists I found.
I started a meta-list for the Best Books of a Decade. There really wasn’t enough lists to make it a good meta-list, but it’s good enough to spot a few interesting standouts.
