Last year, I read around 40 books and was so proud of myself. I made it a goal to read a book a week – which I didn’t quite hit considering the size of some of the books – but nonetheless, I read a lot. But out of those books, I have those that I loved and those that I didn’t.
Of course, my favorite books of 2018 might not be yours, and that’s okay! But I’ve found it really takes a lot to make me keep thinking of a book once I’ve put it down, and really want to reread it again. So here’s some books that do just that!
#1: Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian
Yep, this one makes my list again. I just love this book. You can click here to read more on my thoughts about why I love this book so dang much. I plan on rereading it this month so I can refresh my memory before reading the sequel!
#2: The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
This is another repeat that makes my list! I seriously loved the writing and the story of this book. It was so compelling, and I loved every minute of it.
#3: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
This was actually my first Holly Black novel I ever picked up, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this book! It isn’t my favorite book of all time, but Black’s writing and descriptions are gorgeous, and her world is intricate and fascinating. I plan on rereading this before reading The Wicked King!
#5: Hate List by Jennifer Brown
I don’t normally read books like this, but something about the initial blurb really gripped me. A story about the aftermath of a schooling shooting, that takes place between the past and present, I really was sucked into this novel. I connected so much with the main character, Valerie, and couldn’t help but feel and understand her pain. This is a must read for me!
#6: The Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas
I loved every book in the ACOTAR series, but it took me a little while to warm up to the story and characters of Throne of Glass. I think Maas has a nice writing style, and her characters, romance, and plotlines are so interesting. Both of these series are displayed front and center on my bookshelf!
While these may not be your personal favorites, they were definitely mine for 2018!
