There were so many great books in 2018! It was really hard to put my favourite reads of the year together… but I definitely had fun looking back at what I’d read during the year. In no particular order…
I just could not put this book down! It was way better than I expected it to be and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters were interesting and engaging and the storyline really grabbed me. Love me a good mystery and Sager did not disappoint. New author to me this year and now an auto-buy! Looking forward to his next.
I have recommened this to so mnay people! Surprisingly really really good. Great story and the main character is just brilliant. Loved the setting in Ireland. A great start to a series – again looking forward to her followup in 2019!
I love Taylor Jenkins Reid and really enjoyed her latest. While an easy read it was such a cool story; I loved the contrast of Evelyn and Monique’s lives as she tells her story. Perfect beach read. And such a gorgeous cover!!
Was feeling this one for a while! Bawled my eyes out at the final chapters. I’m picky with my historical fiction and as such don’t read a lot. Loved it and will definitely read again.
His latest and a hefty read (my longest for the year!). But EXCELLENT, such an incredible world he’s built and I love how the characters have grown in this latest installment. Sanderson always surprises me. Can’t wait for the next. You know in like three years…
Another one I couldn’t put down! Really enjoyed his style of writing and so desperate to find out what happened next I powered through this story! A premise that’s been done before but the main character was so endearing that you were distracted. Loved the twist I didn’t see coming. One of the best thrillers of the year.
This was was such a surprise for me! I really enjoyed the character of Eleanor who made me laugh out loud at some of the things she says. It was refreshing to read a story about someone who says everything on their mind but also has a friend explaining social graces that I think everyone needs a reminder of every now and then. A beautiful story and I’m looking forward to more from Gail Honeyman.
A wonderful thought provoking read that left me thinking about it for days. I loved that it was such a simple premise but told so beautifully. I loved the different time periods and the way they were weaved together through each sibling. Highly recommend.
I had to include the final of Throne of Glass! I really enjoyed seeing all the characters together and thought she finished the series off beautifully. There were definitely a few things that bothered me/that I didn’t like HOWEVER I thought she did a great job and wrapped up a lot from the first book and the series. SO. MANY. TEARS. Manon! The thirteen! I still don’t have words.
Despite being a slow burner I really enjoyed Circe. I love Greek mythology and really loved the way Miller told Circe’s story. While she could have left a few of the myths out, the story was weaved together so well and you really felt for Circe.
