You guys… I tried making this post 18 Favorite Books I Read in 2018, but GODDAMNIT I READ 160 BOOKS THIS YEAR AND HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO NARROW THAT LIST DOWN TO JUST 18 FAVORITES?!
It wasn’t worth being cute. Anytime I thought about cutting a book from this list, I felt a deep sense of betrayal and I was pretty sure the Book Gods would smite me.
Also… I 100% cheated and put books in a series together if I loved them all, so… whatever. THIS IS MY BLOG I CAN DO WHAT I WANT!
Anyway, Happy New Years Eve! I’ve been loving reading your End of the Year Wrap-ups. I hope you enjoy this one:
Here are my favorite books that I read in 2018:
In no particular order.
This extremely dark romance is the first of its kind that I read and absolutely adored. These were the first books by Trisha Wolfe that I read, and I was hooked. Her way with words are basically magic.
This was a recent read for me, and it was 100% worth the hype. I’ve been so into contemporary lately, it definitely took a book like this to pull me back into the fantasy worlds I love.
I was so surprised by this novel because it is a trope that I’m not a big fan of and usually avoid (single mother trope), however, it is also a sports romance (which is one of my favorites), so when my sister recommended it to me and told me the premise (a girl rescues a man who happens to be a famous athlete), I decided to read it despite my hesitations, and I’m so glad I did!
I was absolutely swept away by Caraval and fell even harder in love with this world and its characters in Legendary. In fact, Legendary’s MC, Tella, is one of my all-time favorite MCs.
I mean… this is a love-to-hate, ice skating sports romance, what more can I ask for? Also, Mariana Zapata’s hilarious name-calling and put-downs in this were so epic.
