My Top 10 Reads of 2018 || Blogmas 2018 Day 16

Hey everyone! Today, we’re talking books again! I’m going to tell you about my top 10 reads so far this year!

I’d planned to read 120 books again this year for my GoodReads goal, but it looks like it might be the first year in 4 years that I might not be able to make it! But I have my fingers crossed! All that to say, this list isn’t comprehensive, but we’re going to make the best of it!

  1.  Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I mean, OBVIOUSLY. I read the Lunar Chronicles this year, and they were absolutely amazing and mindblowing and AH. I love this series so much!!! If you haven’t read this series yet, you’re seriously MISSING OUT.
  2. If I Run by Terri Blackstock. Christian suspense, man, is a WEIRD genre. But this whole series was a trip and a half and I LOVED it. It was so so well written. There were so many plot twists and action and faith content and just AH. I need to reread this series already!
  3. Turtles All the Way Down by John Green. This book really blow John Green open for me, and I really started to enjoyed contemporary books after I read this one. The portrayal of mental illness was so good as well!!
  4. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. This one made me SOB. WWII stories of any sort already have my heart, but this one absolutely destroyed me. It’s short and sweet but SO POWERFUL.
  5. Chasing Jupiter by Rachel Coker. This one was written by a homeschooled young author, and it was SO GOOD. It was so pure and light and summery, but it also talked about much more than just fluff. It also made me cry, and it was so so cute!
  6. Wild Blue Wonder by Carrie Sorosiak. This one I just picked up because I saw it in somebody’s book subscription box unboxing video, and thought I might as well check it out. The setting reminds me of where I grew up in Michigan and it was so well written AND surprise, it made me cry.
  7. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro. This was a genderbent modern-ish retelling of Sherlock Holmes, and it was so fun to read! I definitely need to read the rest of the books in the series, and see what I think about them as well.
  8. Harry Potter and the Sorcer’s Stone by JK Rowling. I turned 18 this year (yay @ being homeschooled Christian), so I started reading the series, and I love it!! I can totally see why everything is so hyped and loved. I’m only 2 books in, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the books!
  9. A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden. This was a fun Christian fiction book to read: it had suspense and villains and New York City and fun history bits, and I enjoyed it a lot!
  10. Heart on the Line by Karen Wittemeyer. I apparently have a thing for telegraph operators, because this is a book about one as well! It had mystery and sass and agh it was just fun.

So here are my top 10 books from 2018! Let’s be honest, most of them are either just amazing series or books that made me cry, but they’re ranked high on my list! What are some of your top books of 2018? Let me know down below!

      OOh yay, it’s a fun book!

      I have a foot in all of them except Slytherin, LOL. I *think* hufflepuff? But could also be Ravenclaw.

    I’ve read all the books on the list but 6 and 10. The Boy In the Striped Pajamas was so sad and so good! And Cinder was amazing, of course. 🙂
