This is about a month and a half late, but I wanted to finally share my favorite reads of 2018!
I set a goal of reading thirty-six books and instead read forty-five after I finally made reading a priority once again. This year my goal is fifty so I’m excited about that. If you want to read more, you CAN read more. You just need to find what works for you. For me, it was reducing TV and social media and picking up a book instead of my phone when I had a few minutes to burn. I’d also stay up late to read at night- especially when I was hooked, which usually happens for any book that falls within the 3-5 star range. (1 or 2 stars and I’m usually skimming them just to get to the end– but I can’t NOT finish a book, no matter the method.)
Here are my favorites of the ones listed above:
- Where the Crawdads Sing
- The Smallest Part
- Pride and Prejudice
- Lilac Girls
- The Nightingale
- The Hideaway
- The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
- The Winter Sea
- The Storyteller’s Secret
A heartbreaking love triangle between three best friends that spans decades. The author instantly became one of my favorites after I read this book. It was such an emotional piece exploring friendships, family, life, and death.
A well-known classic, I don’t have to explain it. But the language is just captivating. Elizabeth Bennett is such a fantastic heroine with her boldness, sarcasm and ambitions. Maybe one of my favorite characters of all time. A book that definitely whisks me away to another time each time I read it.
