Top 6 favourite books of 2018

Hello lovelies, so as 2019 is approaching, I thought why not try something a little different on my blog, so here I am bringing you my favourite reads of 2018.

Now by no means am I saying these books were all released in 2018, no no no, that would make for an extremely short blog post as I definitely didn’t read enough 2018 releases for that! These are just the books that I read in 2018 that I absolutely loved and feel like you guys should know about!

So my reading year only really began late September time, before that I had little to no motivation, I wasn’t doing very good with my health so my main focus really was to get myself healthy again and also with whatever energy I had left I was spending time with my wonderful partner and my little girl, so I didnt get around to reading for a long time before September, then I made my instagram, I kicked off my blog and I let myself fall back in love with reading, so without further ado, let’s get into it!

1. DUMPLIN’- JULIE MURPHY

So the first book I read and absolutely loved this year was Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy, I adored this book! And I loved the Netflix movie just as much! It was such a funny, heart warming book and I mean, who doesn’t love a bit of Dolly Parton??

2. TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE- JENNY HAN

The next book is To all the boys I’ve loved before by Jenny Han, now this is another one of those books which has recently been made into a Netflix movie, and at first I admit I was harsh with my critique of the film, but the more I watch it, the more I grow to love it, I just wish it didn’t miss out so many of the important factors that I loved so much from the book. I sat and read this book in one sitting (if that’s any indication of how much I enjoyed it!) I’ve still got to read the next two books but I can guarentee I will be getting to those early on in 2019! A fluffy contemporary is always welcome in my house!

3. A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE-BRITTANY CAVALLARO

Book number 3 is a book I wasn’t expecting to like quite as much as I did, I’ve never been a reader of mysteries or horrors etc, although to be fair I’d never really given them a chance, always sticking to romance and YA contemporaries, but I’ve definitely branched out in 2018 and that all started with this book, A study in charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro, I was so gripped by this book, I’d entered brand new territory in the world of books and I absolutely loved it, the suspense, the “who done it” aspect and the urge to know more started something off for me and I cannot wait to read the next books in the series!

4. THERE’S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE- STEPHANIE PERKINS

Book number 4 again was a leap out of my comfort zone, but it was a leap I definitely don’t regret and that was There’s someone inside your house by Stephanie Perkins! I was shocked by how much I enjoyed this book, I liked the characters, the premise of the book and risking sounding like a lunatic here, I absolutely lived for the gore!

5. THE MEMORY- LUCY DAWSON

This one is a little different, as I stated earlier my usual choice for books has always been YA, and usually contemporary and romance etc, but then I picked up “The memory” by Lucy Dawson and my oh my, did I enjoy this one! It was creepy, it was thought provoking and it 100% left me wanting more creepy books in my life (and may have left me spending more money than I should have on amazon but let’s not get distracted)

6. A LIST OF CAGES- ROBIN ROE

Last but certainly not least, A list of cages by Robin Roe, this book had me EMOTIONAL! Not only did it have me blubbering but it made me angry, it made me happy and if I’m honest I don’t think I was quite myself for a day or two after reading this one. Major trigger warnings all over this book for anyone who would avoid reading about certain, slightly more taboo topics but I honestly think that everyone should give this book a read.

If anyone is interested in reading any more about any of these books please check out the rest of my blog where I do in fact have reviews written on the majority of them, and please please please if you have read any of these books let me know what you thought! Either on here or on instagram @georgia_books, I love hearing what you guys! Thank you so much for reading and for all the support you have been showing myself AND my blog!

I hope 2018 was as great for books for you as it was for me! (and hopefully 2019 is even better!)

    1. I wish I had waited to write this as I read frozen charlotte straight afterwards and oh my, it is amazing and definitely deserves to be on here! I absolutely adored dumplin’, if you liked the movie I’m positive you will love the book!

  1. A List of Cages sounds interesting, I’ve not come across that one before. I saw the film of Dumplin’ and enjoyed it so I definitely have to read the book at some point. I want to read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before before I watch the film though! Following your blog and I will check out your reviews 🙂

    1. Thank you I’ll follow you back and have a look! A list of cages was definitely one of my favourites! If you liked the film of dumplin’ I think you will love the book! And I was the same with to all the boys, I read the book first and then watched the film the next day and I was disappointed with the film at first, just because I seemed to notice a lot more differences than everyone else but its still a good film! I would highly reccomend frozen charlotte too by Alex Bell if you haven’t read that, i wasn’t expecting to read anything else after writing this until 2019 but I squeezed that book in too and it was amazing!
