#TopTenTuesday: The Best Books I 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.

Happy New Year Everyone!

This week's topic is the best books I read in 2018. I feel like I may have already gone over these yesterday in my Year End Survey, but I wanted to do this here too.

This book TORTURED me, but in the best way possible. This book was really long, but it's really action-packed and it kept me guessing. I'm still not over this book, and I'm not ready to read the next book yet.

At first, I wasn't that sure about this book, but Claudia Gray proved me wrong like she always does. This book really gets to the core of who Leia will become. It's a true coming of age book, and I highly recommend it. 

I was able to listen to the audio of this early, and I was amazed by it. Lauren Ezzo killed it with her narration. This one is a great horror YA story that also has a lot of diversity!

I finally dived into more Star Wars comics this year, and I started with Doctor Aphra. She is kind of my newest fave! I would love to see her come to the TV shows or the movies. 

I was so glad to see Thrawn become a Star Wars canon character. He is one of the best villains. Timothy Zahn did not disappoint.

This book is told in interviews, transcriptions, etc that I thought it was perfect to listen to on audio. It's definitely the type of adult novels I am looking to read more of.

Julie Kagawa is a fave author, so I was pumped to get an ARC of this book. I adored this book a lot. If you love Feudal Japan and Yokai myths, I highly recommend.

RJB has become another author over the past few years that I have come to love. Foundryside was such a unique book. 

I will never stop talking this book up. I was super impressed by The Alchemists of Loom, and it was so interesting to read a book that has ZERO humans. 

Are you missing Vampire books? Look no further than SMG's book set in Mexico City. Such a dark gritty book, that I will continue to recommend until the end of time.

What were your best books of 2018?

Happy Reads Everyone!
