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 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is Best Books I Read in 2018. This was a tough list to put together, as you’ll see by the fact that I’ve given you my Top 13 because I couldn’t narrow to just 10 favorites. The way I picked my favorites was to start on Goodreads and see how many books I had given 5 star (or 4.5 rounded up to 5) reviews to. I had quite a few more than 10, so then I narrowed from there by selecting the books that resonated the most with me. Those were the ones I’m still thinking about even if it has been months since I read them and they’re also the ones that I tend to recommend most to fellow readers. Also, not all of these were published in 2018. At least two of these were backlist reads that I loved.
Anyway, here’s my list. Happy New Year, everyone! Here’s to a great reading year for us all in 2019!
