2018 Yearly Review

Well folks,

We are back in January. Where the heck did last year go? Let’s Hope 2019 is a great year for you all

(and myself of course).

2018 was a great year for me bookwise. I ready 240ish which is more than I normally do. I also listened to 10 audiobooks so I am quite proud of myself. Below is a list of the books I rated 5 stars this year. They are the ones I recommend the most. If you have read any of them then let me know what you thought of them.

Here we go:

  • The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris (January)
  • Love, Hate and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed (February)
  • Everless by Sara Holland (February)
  • The Last Laugh by Tracy Bloom (February)
  • Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios (March)
  • The End of Loneliness by Benedict Wells (April)
  • Sunsine at the Comfort Food Café by Debbie Johnson (April)
  • A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks (April)
  • Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Rebecca Albertalli (April)
  • Derby Girl by Shauna Cross (May)
  • How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran (May)
  • The Exact Opposite of Ok ay by Laura Steven (July)
  • How Do You Like Me Now? by Holly Bourne (August)
  • While I Was Sleeping by Dani Atkins (August)
  • How to Be Famous by Caitlin Moran (September)
  • Floored by Holly Bourne et al (October)
  • Diversify by June Sarpong (October)
  • Jack of Hearts (And Other Parts) by LC Rosen (October)
  • Make Trouble by John Waters (November)
  • Paper Avalanches by Lisa Williamson (December)
  • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Reid Jenkins (December)

I read some exceptional books and if I had to pick a favourite…ooh…ok, a top five it would have to be…top six. Yes Top Six because why not:

  • Derby Girl by Shauna Cross
  • While I Was Sleeping by Danny Atkins
  • How to Build A Girl by Caitlin Moran
  • How to be Famous by Caitlin Moran
  • Paper Avalanches by Lisa Williamson
  • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

So there it is folks. My favourite books of the year. I still read more books by women than men and I wish I had a map to mark where each of my books were set because I have travelled through books a lot. I read over 170 new authors as well as reading five classics that I thought I would never get round to reading. I also have to give an honourable mention to Anne of Green Gables which was a book that I read for the first time and absolutely fell in love with.

Hope you have enjoyed reading this year. Get involved and let me know what you have read this year.
