Best Books I’ve Read In 2018 (So Far).


Hey!

I can’t believe it’s already been half a year! So far in 2018 I have read 38 books and listened to 10 audiobooks (currently listening to my 10th now). Here are ten of my five star reads. I think total I have about 12 or 13 five stars for the year so far. All of these books below were so amazing and I loved everything about them. Some are sequels and series enders that I absolutely love so much.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Immortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes
Inferno by Julie Kagawa
Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum
Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum
Orphan Number Eight by Kim van Alkemade
The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

Turtles All the Way Down was probably the biggest surprise of 2018 for me, because I honestly went into it thinking I was going to hate it. I don’t usually love John Green books, but this one was pretty amazing. Another surprise was The Cruel Prince, because really hyped books and I don’t mix well. I don’t usually love hyped books as much as everyone else and I have no idea why! But it just doesn’t always happen for me, but I loved The Cruel Prince so much. Immortal Reign (Falling Kingdoms) and Inferno (Talon Saga) were series enders and they are two of my favorite series of all-time! I hated to see them end, but they were so damn amazing. ALL THE FEELS.

Books With My Favorite Color On the Cover (or In the Title).


Hey!

The topic for today is books with my favorite color on the cover (or in the title). This is a fun topic this week! My favorite color is PINK. I pretty much love all shades of pink. These ten books are books that I have not read yet, but really want to read. Some of them I own and some of them I don’t own yet.

Books I’d Slay a Lion to Get Early.


Hey!

Honestly, this post was a lot harder to do than I originally thought it would be. I guess there isn’t a ton of books that I am willing to slay a lion for. 😛 I decided to go with five books that are not released yet and then five books that are already released that I really want to get my hands on. I’ve been trying really hard not to buy a ton of books, so there are quite a few out there now that I still haven’t gotten.

Five Not Released:

The Wicked King by Holly Black
And the Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick Ness
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli/Adam Silvera
The Next Person You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

Five Already Released:

Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read.


Hi!

I am going to go with only the books that I own that I’ve had for a really long time now and still haven’t read. Let me tell you, it’s A LOT more than ten. I’m going to just get right into it. These are books that I’ve probably had since 2015 and haven’t read them yet.

I really want to try to make these books a priority this year and finally read them. There’s also PLENTY MORE not on this list that I want to try to make a priority this year. I really need to get to reading these older books I bought and that I’ve had for so long.

Top Ten Tuesday|| Books I liked, but can’t remember.

Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About.


Hey!

This is something that I am so bad with! Even some of my favorite books, I can’t seem to remember them clearly anymore. SO SAD, especially when I know I’ve loved them so much at the time that I read them. It’s so much worse when it’s a book that is a part of a series. Here are some of the books that I’ve read over the years that I REALLY loved, but can’t really remember much about them (other than the feeling of knowing I loved them).

serpentkingsimonvsbookoflostthingsthegiverangelfall

The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
The Giver (all 4 boooks) by Lois Lowry
Angelfall (all 3 books) by Susan Ee

These are some of my favorite books and it’s so sad that I can’t remember them completely. I know I loved them SO MUCH! I rated all of them five stars too. I think it’s time for a reread of these books. Luckily the Simon vs. movie is coming out this year though. It’ll give me a little bit of a refresher even if movies aren’t exactly the same as their books.

legioncrystalstormthesongrisinghollowcitydarkestminds

Legion by Julie Kagawa
Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes
The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon
Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

These are some of my all-time favorite series and series that I need to finish, but I just can’t remember most of what happened! The Talon series (Legion) and the Falling Kingdoms series (Crystal Storm) are both finishing this year though, so that’s pretty exciting. I just have to reread or find recaps, sigh. Part of the reason why I haven’t read Library of Souls yet is because I don’t remember much of what happened in Miss Peregrine’s and Hollow City, so I keep putting it on hold.

What are some books you really liked, but can’t remember much or anything about them? Let me know in the comments and feel free to link me to your posts!

In case you missed it, I have a giveaway going on until the 31st of this month (January). It’s linked down below if you want to enter and win a book of your choice! It’s international as long as book depository ships to you.

Top ten books I meant to read in 2017, but didn’t get to.


Hey!

FYI, it’s been over seven months since I’ve done a TTT post! I want to try to do more this year. Anyway, onto the topic for today. Ten books that I meant to read in 2017, but didn’t get to. There are SO MANY books that I wanted to read in 2017, but didn’t get a chance to. Narrowing this down to just ten is going to be pretty difficult, but let’s get started!

hiddenoracletheafterlifedimplethecrownsfatesixofcrows

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

toalltheboyscaravalcarvethemarkelizaandhermonstersthediabolic

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

Some of these I have been wanting to read for so long, like Six of Crows. I’ve had it since it’s release in 2015 and have yet to get to it. UGHH. I’ve also owned almost all of these since their release dates. Hopefully this year! I actually have a buddy read planned in February for When Dimple Met Rishi, so that’s good. I really hope to read all of these this year.

What are some books that you mean to read in 2017, but didn’t get the chance to read? Have you read any of the ones on my list? Feel free to link me to your TTT posts, so I can check them out! 🙂

Best Books You’ve Read In 2017 So Far.


Hey!

So far this year I’ve read almost 40 books, which is pretty good. I’ve read a TON of really great books too, so picking 10 books is pretty hard. I did it though! 😀 Down below are ten of the best books that I’ve read so far this year. You can check out more of the books that I read this year over here on my blog.

Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry
One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
Renegade Red by Lauren Bird Horowitz

I also really loved the sequel to The Bone Season (The Mime Order) and also the sequel to Nowhere But Here (Walk the Edge). Those were both pretty amazing too. I flew through all of these books when I picked them up. So many feels throughout every single one of these too.

Have you read any of these books? Feel free to link me to your TTT posts, so I can check them out! 😀
