My Year in Books 2018

It’s the time of year for lists and reflection, and I would be amiss if I didn’t reflect upon what I read this year, and if I didn’t share my favourite reads of 2018! I read a lot this year – 82 books to be exact (or around there, because I am sure I missed recording a few on Goodreads here and there!), which amounted to a whopping 32,163 pages. And that’s not even counting all the reading I did for school (which, by the way, is something I would prefer to not reflect upon).

Anyways, Goodreads put together this super neat feature called “My Year in Books”, and I thought it would be awesome to combine some of the things I learned from it with my yearly Top 10 Books post! I have attached photos of “My Year in Books” below my Top 10 of 2018 post for this of you who are interested in viewing it – including a fabulous collage of all the books I read this year!

My Top 10 Books for 2018 are:

In addition, all books on the above list are books that I have personally read during the year of 2018. Therefore, some books you regarded as being one of your favourite books of 2018 may be omitted from this list. If this is the case, please refrain from negativity – instead, I ask you to comment and share the omitted book with me so I have to opportunity to read it myself! Thank-you!
