Favorite Books of 2018

So folks it’s that time of year again…a recollection of all the books that scored high in 2018.

For me, the following books score in no particular order in terms of 1-10. They are listed in the order of what they were read. They are just books that have settled into their own niche in my book nerd heart. I also happen to recommend these first for people who ask about books to read. You all know that having someone to geek out about your favorite characters can make for a richer reading experience.

The end of 2018 got a bit busy for me so I wasn’t able to read as much as I would like. I don’t even want to mention the reading slump. Even though it doesn’t feel right to call a slump since I was still reading but I kept putting books down to start something else. Thankfully I seem to be out of it for now.

But above are my favorite reads of 2018. Each one of them leaving their own individual marks on my heart as favorites do.

And yes I actually recommend all of them to someone on a regular basis.

Definitely check them out!

Happy Reading 🙂

Have a safe and happy New Year!
