Hi Book Lovers!
Top Ten Tuesday is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl (go check out her TTT list!). This week’s theme was:
Top Ten Books I’ve Read in 2018 (so far).
This is easy-peasy. A lot of these are books that were big months or years ago, but hey, better late than never! Let’s go.
There is no order to these, they are just being listed as I remember them!
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. I have not yet done a review as my best friend still has my book (which is totally fine, friend!). However, I truly loved this book.
Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi. This was a cute middle-grade story that was full of life and in a world I forgot could be created for people to enjoy.
★★★★☆ (4/5) — My Review
Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult. Undoubtedly Picoult is my favorite author. I have been trying to re-read all of her books and this was the last one I read. I listened to it on audio and for the first time in this story, I cried a lot. My heart still aches over this story. I just cannot.
★★★★★ (5/5) — My Review.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I recently posted my long overdue review on this. It was a re-read for me, but I loved it just as much the third time around as I did the first two.
★★★★★ (5/5) — My Review.
A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir. Review is still coming for this one, but I greatly enjoyed the second installment of this story!
★★★★★ (5/5) — My Review to come.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Again, I just recently read this and have yet to post a review but it blew me away. It was crazy to read, exciting to the point I couldn’t sleep, and I loved the story and characters.
★★★★★ (5/5) — My Review to come
Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills. This was SUPER light, a little cheesy, and yet I loved every second of this book. Review to come!
★★★★☆ (4.25/5) — My Review to come.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
Yes, yes this is generically boring to post but I CANNOT HELP IT, ok? I’ve been listening to all of them on audio this year because I LOVE Jim Dale’s voice for all different characters. They had to make this list, even if they’ve made this list in the past. Sorry, not sorry.
★★★★★ (5/5) for all three.
- What books made your list?
- Did we have any of the same top 10s so far this year?
- Of your top 10 – which one would you recommend first to me??
