7 Books I Read and Fell in Love with in 2018 (Plus 3 Honorable Mentions)

2019 is upon us, but 2018 is not forgotten. And more specifically: the books I read are not (entirely) forgotten.

7 books i read and fell in love with in 2018 (plus 3 honorable mentions)

Today I’m going to share with you the ones that left the biggest impression on me: my favorites and some honorable mentions. There are a couple of rules to my lists though:

  1. These are books that I’ve read in 2018, but didn’t necessarily come out that year (most did though).
  2. Only one book per author per list, however, I will include one of the authors in both lists. If you follow my reviews, I’m sure you can guess which author will be present in both places, although I’ve reviewed so many of her books (seven, actually) this year, that you might not be able to guess which two titles are going to be featured into this post.

And now, in the order in which I’ve posted my reviews, starting with the oldest one…
