Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Best Books I Read In 2018
Gosh this is HARD. And there isn’t a real rhyme or reason to how I picked the top ones, it was just a combination of rating, and then how fondly I remembered it, and these are the 18 books that won!
The Honorable Mentions:

The Top Ten
#10: Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett: First Jenn Bennett, definitely not the last! Survival + Swoons = Happy Shannon.
#9: Alex + Ada by Jonathan Luna & Sarah Vaughn: Best graphic novel series I have read, also reminds me of Humans.
#8: Our Year of Maybe by Rachel Lynn Solomon: So many feels, also so freaking honest I cannot.
#7: Here and Now and Then by Mike Chen: Time travel, gray morality, and oh so many feels.
#6: Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful by Arwen Elys Dayton: Super unique and thought-provoking, set in an all-too-plausible future where humans, as usual, take shit too far.
#5: Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman: Honestly just as good as Scythe. So you know, awesome.
#4: Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine & Ann Aguirre: Technically I read this in 2017, but look, my post was done without it and I can’t not mention it!
#3: The Bird and the Blade by Megan Bannen: Did not expect to fall in love as hard as I did. Still crying.
#2: Four Three Two One by Courtney Stevens: Also never expected to love this so much. But wow, these characters sucked me in and never let go.
#1: Fatal Throne by Candace Fleming et al: The only 2018 book that made it to my all-time favorites list, and one that shocked me the most. Like who’d have guessed how much I’d love fictional accounts of dead ladies? Not me, but here we are!
