Top Five Books of 2018 So Far


Today I thought I’d share my top five books of 2018 so far, since we’re already 6 months into 2018 (seriously how the hell did that happen?!) Anyways this was a bit difficult to put together, since I’ve only read 15 books this year, which yes I know, is absolutely pathetic, it was kinda difficult to pick out five standout books from the miniscule list. But I did it and here they are…

Blood and Sand – C.V. Wyk

Blood and Sand is probably my favourite read so far this year, I really loved everything about it to be honest and I finished it in less than a day, my only gripe is that I have to wait until 2019 for the next book!

Sky In the Deep – Adrienne Young
I adored Sky in the Deep. A fierce female Viking who kicks butt? Yes please! Why aren’t more books about Vikings?

Hope and Red – Jon Skovron
I’ve previously mentioned on another post just how much I love this book. For me it was a breath of fresh air from what I’d normally read and I just enjoyed pretty much everything about this one!

Everless – Sara Holland
Everless is a story that’s really stuck with me well after finishing it, not for any life changing reason or anything like that, I can just vividly remember what happens, for me that’s a sure sign of a good book!

Retribution Rails – Erin Bowman
As a lot of you probably know from a few of my posts, I love Erin Bowman’s Vengeance Road duology. I’m in love with the ridiculously stunning covers, I love all the characters, I love the world building, the writing style, ugh, I just love them and will continue to sing their praises forevermore!

I’m planning to read around 50 books over the next six months… I have no idea how I’ll achieve that as of yet, but I’m determined to reach this years reading goal!

How many books have you read so far this year? Are you doing as terribly as me? Have you read any of my top five this year? What did you think?

  1. So many amazing books! Everless was one of my most anticipated books of this year and I still haven’t read it because when it came out I read really mixed reviews and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read it anymore, but knowing that someone liked it as much as you did makes me want to give it a chance. Great post! 💗

    1. I read Everless pretty much as soon as I’d got it, I think it might have been from a Fairyloot box so must have got it around the time it came out, so I didn’t have that problem thankfully, sometimes it really puts me off reading books when they have really mixed reviews! Personally I did love it and while I definitely don’t think it was perfect, I enjoyed it a lot and honestly didn’t see the plot twists coming, which I know a lot of people did, so for me I couldn’t really fault it too much! Hope you do like it when you get round to it ☺️
