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…

13 Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading in 2018

There are a lot of books I’d like to read in 2018, but I’ve narrowed them down to thirteen to share with you. Before I tell you which they are, a few disclaimers:

  1. This isn’t a Top 13; the books are in no particular order.
  2. While some of these books are coming out this year (I’ve mentioned which), there are some that are older.
  3. Some of the new releases don’t have covers, titles or synopsis yet. In the case of the unknown titles, I’ll just write which series the book is from and the number it’s supposed to be; as for the About (synopsis), I’ll just explain what the series is about.
  4. I’ve divided the books in the following categories: Fiction Novels (8), Guides (3), and Manga/Graphic Novels (2).

Let’s start with…

WARNING: Mature Content

Blurb:

Still mending a broken heart, Matthew has spent a year avoiding incubi and their army of hunters.

Now he has a new goal: lift the shroud on his past. Why had he been turned and abandoned by his sire? Why didn’t he feel the initial bond between sire and child that vampires experience? Who were his parents, and why had they given him up at birth?

With the incubi armies closing in, a mysterious protector appears, swearing his fealty to Matthew. He’s ancient, seductive, and cursed—unable to explain why he keeps calling Matthew ‘my prince’.

What I think of the book:

When I started Sire, I thought Continue reading
