I had decided not to try and do a top ten post for 2018 due to the number of books I read.
According to Goodreads, I read/listened to 737 books in 2018. Of those 306 were children’s books (under 100 pages). I was surprised to see that number. I went through all the books I rated 5 stars and decided that I wanted to highlight some of them. I am doing a top 5, but in different categories. If you click on the cover of the book, it will take you to my review.
Women’s Fiction/Literary Fiction (8)
Cozy Mysteries (It was very difficult to just choose 5)
Non-Fiction (I don’t read a lot of Non-Fiction, but here are my 5 star ones for 2018)
Children’s Picture Books
Finally …. Romance (This is an easy one for me because it is one series)
The Return of the Blackwell Brothers is a series from Harlequin Heartwarming and I gave all 5 stories a 5 Star rating.
I also wanted to highlight some new authors to me this past year that I want to continue reading. If you click on their picture, it will take you to their Goodreads Page.
Karen White Amanda Flowers Amy Clipston
Katherine Center Indy Quillen James J. Cudney
Charlotte Hubbard Allen Eskins Leanne Lauricella
So, there you have it. Some of my top books of the year and some new authors to me. I know there is so much more that I could highlight, but that is it for today. I hope that you might be interested enough to try one of my top books or one of the new authors. Have a wonderful 2019 everyone.
