Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books We Read In 2018


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This weeks topic is Top Ten Best Books We Read In 2018


moxie simon vs the homosapiens agenda the smoke thieves a discvovery of witches thunderhead

1 Moxie

by Jennifer Mathieu

24th – 28th January

This was a pretty powerful book for the start of the year! It had some fantastic points and I was really with Viv in her mission.

2 Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda

by Becky Albertalli

9th – 10th February

I loved this book so much I read it twice. Well, once I knew who Blue was, I had to go back and find every interaction they may or may not have had…

3 Smoke Thieves

by Sally Green

17th April – 6th May

I keep forgetting about this one. I guess it was a slow build? Or April-May was another life, haha, but I’m looking forward to book 2!

4 A Discovery of Witches

by Deborah Harkness

8th – 15th July

I really liked this book. I remember coming home from work, taking the dog out and then sitting with a cup of tea and reading it. Good memories.
The adaption was pretty close too!
Looking forward to book AND season 2!

5 Thunderhead

by Neal Shusterman

12th – 16th July

Oh boy. This was pretty epic. This was nearly my favourite book of the year, but then we’d have had to talk about book 1, which is also pretty neat – especially the audio book! – but that was better the second time around and wasn’t nearly as “woah” as Thunderhead. I’m looking forward to book 3 and being able to listen to all of them one after the other!


I really haven’t read that many books this year (this is basically half my reading pile…Even so I’ve read some good books)
2019 will be better.

Jellicoe the cruel prince Guernsey The Last Namsara Hero at the Fall

6 On The Jellicoe Road

by Melina Marchetta

Read: September 2018

This is my second Melina Marchetta book but I didn’t really click with Saving Francesca. I listened to this on Audio as the library didn’t have an actual copy. I’m really enjoying the library app as it allows me to read on the go and listen to audios.
On The Jellicoe Road had a slow build up and I did struggle with it initially but once I got into it I couldn’t stop listening! Definitely worth picking up if you haven’t had a chance already.

7 The Cruel Prince

by Holly Black

Read: January 2018

Absolutely amazing story. Best start to 2018 and probably my favourite book of the year.

8 The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

by Mary Ann Shaffer

Read: April 2018

This was a lovely book. I loved all the characters and even enjoyed the way it was written as a bunch of letters. I could see people I knew in these characters and that really warmed my heart. I can understand why this isn’t for everyone though.

9 The Last Namsara

by Kristen Ciccarelli

Read: February 2018

It’s been ages since I read a good book about Dragons. I loved how the author opened each chapter with a story that felt like an old biblical tale.

10 Hero at the Fall

by Alwyn Hamilton

Read: March 2018

I really enjoyed the ending to this series. I’m glad I finally got round to reading it! Even if I’m sad it’s all over.
