Top Favorite Books of 2018 (So Far)
We still have a little less than a week to get some reading in, hence the (So Far) in the above title. I might read an amazing book in that time – you never know! In order to determine my top favorites, I went through Goodreads and found all the books I gave 5 stars to!
Vicious by V. E. Schwab
Sink or Swim by L.A. Witt
Liar Liar by M.J. Arlidge
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
Craft Brew by Layla Reyne
Fatal Throne by Candace Fleming, etc.
I will tell you now that you’ll see a lot of V.E. Schwab on this entire list – three books in fact! There are also some amazing m/m romance if you’re interested – Sink or Swim and Craft Brew above. Fatal Throne is wonderful if you are interested in King Henry VIII, and Liar Liar is part of a mystery series I ADORE!
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer by Michelle McNamara
Blood of My Blood by Barry Lyga
A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
Game by Barry Lyga
Picture Us In the Light by Kelly Loy Gilbert
White Rabbit by Caleb Roehrig
There’s that third V.E. Schwab book! There are also two Barry Lyga books – such a good series! I’m a big fan of true crime, so I loved I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, and White Rabbit is a YA mystery with LGBT+ characters. Picture Us in the Light was dubbed one of my new favorite books, so I do recommend!!
Heat Trap by J.L. Merrow
At The Edge of the Universe by Shaun David Hutchinson
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
And finally, we end with three LGBT+ books. Heat Trap is part of a mystery series. At The Edge of the Universe is such an amazing, unique YA novel that I highly recommend. And finally, The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is a historical fiction novel full of mystery and laughs. You can’t read it and not love Monty a little bit.
There you have it – all the books I gave 5 stars to in 2018. Yes, I’m a tad liberal with my 5-stars, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t absolutely LOVE every single one of these.
