Another year has come and gone…damn… time flies when you have some good books to read So far, I have read 352 books in 2018 and I am sure there will be some more before the clock strikes 12 at the end of this year ! Once again, I will share my top reads of the year with you. The books in this list are books I have newly read in 2018, so no re-reads. Most were published in 2018 as well… I think only one book wasn’t 😉
Since I read both MF and MM books, I have made 2 lists… Click the covers to open the book page on Goodreads, to add it to your TBR list
Let’s start with my favorite MM reads of 2018 !! I am not surprised by the fact that T.J. Klune’s name is on my list twice…he has a permanent spot in my top list, no matter the year it seems !! Both Ravensong and A wish upon the Stars blew me away, even though they are quite different from one another… Then again, T.J. could rewrite the phone book and I would probably love the shit out of it.
The story of Us was my most emotional read of 2018. I have read this one not too long ago and my heart still breaks whenever I think about it… Barbara Elsborg has proven once again, to be the real queen of angst for me!! Point of Contact came in at a close second when it comes to the number of tears shed by me. Jocelynn and Rinda gave us some awesome editions to the Ward Security series, and Sloane added another big hit to her “Protectors” series with Unbroken. Hopefully, there will be many more.
Mary Calmes‘ “Marshall” series came to an end…and what an end it was. Ella Frank introduced us to a new series “Confessions” and she showed us that sometimes three is better than two
My dear friend Elsbeth recommended Where Death Meets the Devil, and I was blown away by it, and by the second book, Why the Devil Stalks Death. Thanks again Els 😉
Charlie Cochet came with a new security/PI series and so far Mason and Lucky from Join the Club are my favorite couple, but there is plenty still to come, so who knows !!
Now for my MF list… Suzanne Wright has blessed me with 3 awesome books this year !! I hope she will keep em coming in 2019. Tillie Cole managed to make me cry on 2 occasions. I know I can always count on Aly Martinez to blow me away and she did so, with The Truth About Lies. I absolutely loved Pam Godwin’s Trails of Sin series…I would love to save a horse and ride a cowboy 😉 Bane kicked Vicious of his spot, though Ruckus will always be my nr 1 😉 C.M. Owens really made me laugh my ass off with Becoming A Vincent.
My most shocking read, however, was Shade by Jamie Begley. After really disliking Razor, I never suspected I would love another book in the “Last Riders” series, but Shade really blew me away. So much so that I have read it 3 times this year already. It even encouraged me to read every single book in the series and the spin-offs. It is the only book on my list that wasn’t released in 2018, but I just couldn’t leave it out…
I hope I have given you some awesome inspiration for next year. I also want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and an incredible 2019 filled with lots of amazing books 😉
xoxoxo Wendy 😉
