My Top 10 Favorite Reads of 2018

At first I wasn't going to post anything for the last day of the year, I was just going to enjoy the night and ring in the new year re-reading a book that I will always love for many reasons, but I decided to try to put together a top 10 list for the end of the year. So here is my Top 10 Favorite Books of the year! 

2018 has been a fantastic reading year for me, I finished 122 books and I haven't done that in a very very long time. I honestly think I was able to read so many books mainly because I didn't force myself to read anything. There was no pressure this year for me to read certain books. I'm hoping to bring that into 2019 and have another amazing reading year. Anyway, below is my favorite books of this year. 

Let's get this list starter, book number 10 on my list is Hot Winter Nights by Jill Shalvis  

Now I've read a lot of books by this fantastic author and a few of them are on this list, but I loved this book so much. Gave it a five puppy rating and I can't wait to read more Heartbreaker Bay novels. I need more of these characters so much! 

Book 9 on my list is To the Moon and Back by Karen Kingsbury

This book honestly made me cry all the way through it! It's that fanastic and the writing OMG it's just breathtaking. Like all Karen Kingsbury books this one makes you feel every emotion the characters are going through. This one really touched me due the other topic of the Oklahoma City Boming and it explaing the memorial. I helped raise money for a few of the children's chairs back when the tragic event happened, so this really was a hard story for me to read but one I truely loved! 

Now for book number 8... No One But You by Brenda Novak

Anyone that knows me well knows I love Brenda Novak books and this one has turned out to be one of my all time favorites!  I fell in love with the main characters of this story right away and wanted them to get that happily ever after! 

Book 7 on my list is The Good Luck Sister by Jill Shalvis 

Yep I told you I read a lot of books by her this year. A huge thanks goes out to her publisher for this. Anyway, this was one of my favorites of her's this year. It's actually a short read but one that I fell in love with and couldn't put down. 

Book 6 is Crossing Hope by Kimberly Kincaid

Another favorite author from this year, I read this whole series and loved each and every book that I've read by her. She creates the best book boyfriends...just saying! LOL I love her way of making you fall for her characters and really wanting to them to succeed in everything! 

Book 5 on my list is Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire 

Now I know this series is on a lot of people's favorites! I loved this series, so far, so much. I loved getting to see what it's like for those kids that went through those doors them came back and what their lives are like afterward. I can't wait to read the next book in this series when it is released in 2019.

Books 4 and 3 on my list are  Thunderhead Neal Shusterman and Scythe

I know, I know these are two books from the same series, but they both needed to be mentioned. I love love love both of these books for different reasons. One being the female lead character, I love her way of being and the way she is caring. Now I also love the male lead character for the oppsite reasons I love him because he is straight to the point and well okay he's caring too, but in the second book he's just had enough. 

2. My Commander by Alanea Alder 

Now if I was doing a top 20 of this year, each and every book in this series would be on my list. I love each and every one of them. I love all the characters and these books are so freaking funny. I laughed the whole way through the first book and all the others as well. Let's just say Meryn is my spirit animal and she's not even a shifter!!  If you haven't read these books it's a must. OH and I must say right now, these are majorly adult books! Just a heads up.

And now it's time for my number one pick of the year! I read this early in the year and I haven't been able to stop thinking about this book. I've told everyone I know to read it and I'll probably re-read it at some point in the near future. Are you ready to see which book I'm talking about? 

1. Sky In The Deep by Adrienne Young

YES! I love this book so much. It has fanasty and vikings. Something I never thought I would read about and love, but honestly I couldn't put this book down. I had to know what was going to happen next. Sky in the Deep is so well written and the main character, she's a strong female lead, one that I was screaming with and felt like I was right there in every battle with her. I need more books by this author and can't wait to read each one. I can't say enough amazing things about this book. If you haven't read this one, serioiusly trust me it's worth the read. 

Alright so there you have it, my favorite reads of 2018! I can't believe it's almost over. 

Anyway, is there a book that should have been on my list that you loved this year? Or are any of my favorites on your list. Let me know down below in the comments. 

Happy New Year everyone and
