My Top Ten Books of 2018

Happy New Year! Unfortunately I have been a bit absent from my blog recently. After moving back to the UK in September I haven’t found time in my new routine to fit it in. One of my new year’s resolutions is definitely to carve out some time for blogging during my weekly routine.

Now onto the topic of this post. I wanted to look back at last year’s reading and select my top ten books as I did last year. It was a much harder task this time round as I gave 17 books a five-star rating in the last year but I was able to select the ones that stood out the most for me. So in chronological reading order my top ten books of 2018 were:

March Reading Wrap-Up 2018

Unfortunately, I had a huge reading slump this month with a more than two week gap where I hardly picked up a book. Work took over and after reading a bit of a meh book I just wasn’t finding the time to read. However, I did manage to listen to an audiobook on my commute to work, and race through a couple of books at the end of the month so ended up finishing 6 books so it wasn’t too bad.

I was also really excited to do my first ever author interview this month as part of the #YAShot Blog Tour. Especially because it was with Laura Steven, as I loved her recently published debut YA novel, The Exact Opposite of Okay. You can read the interview here.
