Top 5 of 2018

I can’t believe 2018 is almost over, it’s been a crazy bit of a year I must say. This year I read 71 books, surpassing my goodreads goal by 11 books! Some of these books I loved while others, I didn’t. But for this post I’m going to be focusing on my top 5 books of 2018. These are in no particular order.

The first one is probably a pretty common one and that is Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas. This book was such a great conclusion to the series and I really couldn’t ask for a better ending. Being my most anticipated book of the year I had high expectations. And I must say, my expectations were surpassed.

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee was such an enjoyable read, I am not surprised that it made this list. I love these character so much and it was such a joy ride to read about them. I found myself laughing multiple times throughout this book and I was smiling the whole time.

My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult was just wow. I was given this book to borrow from someone I know and I really didn’t want to read it but I felt obligated to. But I am so glad I did because it was just wow, such an amazing book. This story is such a captivating one and the dynamic of the family and each character was so interesting to read about. And I absolutely fell in love with Picoult’s writing, I cannot wait to read another book by her.

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody was very enjoyable to read. I loved the world in which this book took place. The character growth for the main character Enne was fun to read about and see develop. The mystery in this book was fun to read about and throughout the book I kept holding hope for what happened to her mother. I have a full review Here if you want to go check that out.

And the last book on this list is Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. This series as a whole is amazing but Crooked Kingdom was I think my favorite out of the two books. The characters in this book are just amazing and I was happy to see some characters pop up from another series by Bardugo. The writing was amazing as always. And what really amazed me was the planning that had to go in to creating the major scheme and con in this book, like I don’t even know how she came up with it, it was just brilliant.

So there you have it, my top 5 favorite books of 2018! I can’t wait to see what new amazing reads I read in 2019.
