Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books 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 of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Happy New Year! Hard to believe another year has passed. That old 2018 is in the past and I look forward to a new year filled with blessings. I'll be setting some goals for the new year soon, but right now I'm hoping Top Ten Tuesday participation increases in 2019. It's one of my favorite memes.

When I think about the best books I've read in 2018, I realize 10 titles is just under a quarter of the books I read last year. Gone are the days that the books read was in the triple digits. Maybe one day I'll get back to that, but for now, I'll just be happy that reading and blogging continues.

Here is my list of Best Books I Read In 2018 (in no particular order):












I also have two honorable mentions because The Daughters of the Mayflower series is so superb:



What are some of your favorites from 2018?

So great to see all of you here today. This is one of the reasons I love this meme. You are all so dedicated about leaving and returning comments. Happy new year, gang. Hope we have a year filled with tons of great books. Ashley, you definitely need to check out The Daughters of the Mayflower. Good stuff!
