Top Ten Books That I Read In 2018

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week’s Top Ten list is all about our favourite books that we read in 2018. I like doing these sorts of posts because I get to look back at the books I’ve read!

In no particular order, here’s my list… book images go to Goodreads!

They Both Die at the End

This was a beautiful read. I didn’t want it to end because I knew what was going to happen at the end. It was a really incredible read. I love Adam Silvera’s writing.

Bad Romance

Another fantastic writer here. Heather Demetrios is amazing. I highly recommend her books. This one was heavy going but so worth the read.

A List of Cages

I’d had this book on my radar and was so pleased I made time for it in 2018. I thought it was amazing. So not what I expected.

Close to Home (DI Adam Fawley, #1)

Another unexpected gem!

How to Stop Time

I love Matt Haig’s writing, if you hadn’t guessed.

A Thousand Perfect Notes

I bloomin’ loved this book! 🙂 It’s hard-going but so beautifully written.

Nice Try, Jane Sinner

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I thought it was really unique.

The Creakers

I adored this book! So much so, that I’m reading it with my book club at school! 🙂

This Is Not A Love Letter

This was a beautifully written book!

Flying Tips for Flightless Birds

I read some cracking debut authors in 2018 and this was another one! 🙂

Tell me about your favourite books of 2018! Feel free to leave me a link to your Top Ten post and I’ll stop by!

  1. I’m reading They Both Die at the End right now and it’s on track to be my first read of 2019. So far, I’m really enjoying my time with the characters and I’m sure it’s going to make me cry!

  2. A Thousand Perfect Notes. Definitely have to make time to read it this year. I might joke about how I can’t pass up a good Amazon sale (when I got this one), but at least I won’t have to wait for this to become available at the library when I get to it. It’s in my TBR jar for this month.

  3. I haven’t read any from your list but I did see They Both Die at the End. Glad to hear you enjoyed it despite the ending. I’m thinking the title isn’t lying? Thanks for stopping by my TTT.

  4. Happy new year! I got How To Stop Time for Christmas in 2017 but still haven’t read it – seeing that it’s on your best books of 2018 list today has made me want to make an effort to read it very soon. Hope your 2019 is full of fabulous books! 🙂

  5. I loved How To Stop TIme! Such a gorgeous book — in fact, I should probably read it again.And I’d really like to read They Both Die At the End. Great list!

  6. What a diverse list! I have had A Thousand Perfect Notes and They Both Die At The End in my tbr for a while now. I also planned to read Bad Romance but then kept delaying it. I guess I’m daunted by the fact that it looks to be such a difficult read!

  7. I don’t think I’ve ever seen ‘Love Letter’ on GR or any bookish list. But WOW! That cover is gorgeous, and makes me want to take a second look. 🙂 Glad you discovered some amazing reads in 2018, Chrissi. Happy 2019, and thanks so much for the Finding Wonderland visit.

  8. Great list, Chrissi! I need to cross How to Stop Time off my TBR this year – it sounds right up my street. 🙂
