Hey guys! This is actually my hundredth post on my blog! I’m actually so proud of myself, and I can’t believe how far my blog has gone this year. It’s just the perfect thing to accomplish right at the end of the year. What a Christmas present.
But anyway, this post is all about my favourite books of 2018! I read 40 books this year, which isn’t much to some people, but it’s heaven for me. And some of the 40 books were just so good, I had to talk about them. I wanted to only include five books, but I couldn’t handle leaving some books out, so this list quickly became seven.
I hope you enjoy, and let’s begin!
1. A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
This book was so incredibly good, and I’d gladly read it another seventy times. The friendship was great, the mystery was great, and it barely had a single flaw. I actually have a review for this book on my blog, so if you want to hear more of my gushing thoughts, click here. But overall, absolutely amazing book, and I’m dying to read it again. I hope there are another thirty books in this series, since this book was probably my favourite book read this year.
2. They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera
This book was the first I’ve read of Adam Silvera, and it certainly did not disappoint. I balled like an absolute baby reading this book. And there were times before then where I’d shed a tear. And there were also some amazing quotes that I had to write down, because they were too good to forget. I do want to read this book again, but I don’t know if my heart will ever be able to take it a second time. This also made me want to read the rest of his books, so hopefully next year I’ll get to More Happy Than Not and History Is All You Left Me.
3. Gone (the whole series) by Michael Grant
I knew at least one book in the Gone series had to be put on this list, but I had absolutely no idea which one. So I just decided to put the whole series on this list instead. I know, it’s kinda cheating, but I love this series too much to mind. All of these books were amazing. I was sucked into the story and I couldn’t put the books down, and it was the best reading experience ever. It’s actually one of the very few series I’ve actually completed (it may actually be the only one I’ve completed), and it was just so good. I do have to say though: if you’re going to read this series and find Lies a little boring, STICK WITH THE SERIES. It gets so much better, trust me. I want to read Monster next year, which is the first book in the spin-off series, and hopefully that’s as good as this one.
4. Harry Potter and The Chamber Of Secrets by J. K. Rowling
I reread the first three books in the Harry Potter series this month and even though they’re all glorious masterpieces, Chamber of Secrets is still my favourite. It has been since I was a little girl, and nothing has changed. I don’t know why I love this book so much, but I do. I also read it this time with the new illustrations, and that was a magnificent experience. I actually haven’t fully read the Harry Potter books past Prisoner of Azkaban, so that’s going to be fixed next year, definitely.
5. The Upside Of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
I honestly can’t really remember my feelings when I was reading this book, but I do know that I loved it. The story was cute and funny, and it’s Becky Albertalli, so of course I was going to love it. On Goodreads I had actually stated that it was my favourite book read this year. Granted I’d read two books in 2018 at that time, but it still counted. I’ve read every book of Becky Albertalli, and this actually might be my favourite. Well, it’s up there with Simon Vs.
6. Ms Marvel by G. Willow Wilson
I really want to reread this graphic novel, partly because I loved it the first time reading it, and also because I’m a fool and never continued on with the series. This graphic novel was a work of art, quite literally. I loved the storyline, both the superhero side and the down-to-earth family side, and I really want to know what happens to the characters. Also, I really want Kamala to be in a Marvel movie, since that would make my day.
7. Percy Jackson and The Sea Of Monsters by Rick Riordan
I know for a fact that this book was amazing, but I cannot for the life of me remember what happened. I know, weird. But I do know that this book was fun and also really funny, and Percy is the greatest protagonist. I can’t wait to continue on with the series, since I need to know what happens to Percy and Anabelle and Grover. And I also want more of Half-Blood Hill.
So those are my favourite books of 2018! I hope you had an amazing reading year and please tell me your favourite books of this year in the comments. Have a great day and I’ll see you very soon, bye!
