Top Ten Reads in 2018
Narrowing down a list of Top Ten Reads in 2018 was always going to be hard. How can you pick favourites?! It’s like asking a mother to pick a favourite child!
When I was getting a list together of the books I read in 2018 in order to make my choices, I made two discoveries: –
- Goodreads hadn’t credited me for 4 books read, so I actually managed to read 50 books in 2018 instead of 46
- Of those 50 books, I rated nearly half 5* ; only 7 books got a rating of 3* or less
Boy, don’t I make my life difficult…
It’s been tough and I’ve had to be brutal. I read a lot of amazing books in 2018 (as you would guess based on my VERY high ratings), but I had to narrow it down to 10. So, here are my Top Ten Reads of 2018! Where I have reviewed the book on my blog, links to my review posts can be followed by clicking on the images.
