Tell Me Something Tuesday is hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings and discusses a wide range of topics from books to blogging.
QUESTION: Best Books of 2018
This year it feels like my reading tastes changed drastically. The books I enjoyed the most were heavier reads and not what I would have typically read before. There are a few romances that won my heart, but it seems like I’m getting pickier with that genre, too.
And this is the first year I’ve read 110+ books! I’ve never read that many books in one year, and it was rediscovering a love of audio books that definitely helped.
It was hard to narrow this list down to 10, so I’m going to do it a little differently. I’m going to combine author’s books and count them as one and separate my favorite audio books at the end.
I’m sure these books will be on a lot of favorite lists this year. They are must reads.
I love Taylor Jenkins Reid and this book blew me away. Such a unique and wonderful read.
These two books couldn’t be more different but they are equally perfect.
Amy Harmon never ceases to amaze me with her beautiful writing.
I usually stay away from super long books, but I couldn’t put this one down. A definite must read.
Another fantastic book that I wouldn’t have normally picked up if it weren’t for the recommendation from a friend.
I look forward to Kristan Higgins’ books every year and she hasn’t disappointed me yet!
I discovered a new favorite author this year.
Another new-to-me author that will be on my auto-buy list for the future.
These days there are few authors who can write romance without making me cringe and this duo does a fantastic job. I absolutely loved both of these books.
The two best thrillers I read this year.
Favorite Book of 2018
It’s difficult for me to pick just one book that stands out from the rest. But, if I think back over the past year and which book I remember the most – the one that stayed with me months after I finished – this is the book. With a perfect combination of romance, suspense, friendship and family drama – this book holds a special place in my heart.
Favorite Audio Books
I’m so glad I rediscovered a love for audio books this year. I listened to some really fantastic books, and these were the ones that stood out.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
