Best Books Of 2018! // The l o v e

Hello lovely people! I am back with another 2018 related post 😂 It’s already almost the second month of 2019, and yet I’m still publishing stuff that involves last year…


And can y’all guess my next post? *insert awkward silence* Well that’s right everyone! My next post will be the Worst Books of 2018! 😁

So I am super ready to do this post because I always get excited when I see people doing this on booktube and on bookish blogs. So here we goooooooo

Disclaimer: As usual these are my personal opinions. And I definitely do not mean to offend anyone in any shape or form.

Disclaimer: This post will only include the books I read for the first time in 2018 (so it will EXCLUDE ANY REREADS)

First, we’ll start off with honorable mentions! There were so many books I wish I could have picked, but unfortunately didn’t quite make the list…

Honorable Mentions of 2018:

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Watson

Half Blood Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern  

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

Now here are my top 10 books of 2018! It was extremely hard deciding what order they were to go in, and it could change later on, but this was what I could think of!

Best Books Of 2018:

10. Down Among The Sticks And Bones by Seanan McGuire


9. A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi


8. Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas


7. Under Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall

4. Slammed by Colleen Hoover


3. We Are The Ants by David Shaun Hutchinson


2. Escaping From Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco




1. The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Ahhh so this is it y’all; my top book of 2018! I absolutely love love love this book with all my heart and i had such a blast reading it (and rereading…and annotating….and dying). This book means so much to me, and brings back all the good memories from the LUX series. The characters made me laugh and cry and kept me going when i needed it the most last year. SOUNDS SUPER WEIRD, but we all know that it’s not “just a book” and they’re not “just some characters”. N o t h i n g  i just said makes any sense, but I honestly can’t explain the connection i have with this book lolll. If you haven’t read this book yet, please please do. Like s t o p, d r o p, and r o l l to your nearest bookstore…

    1. AHHH THANK YOU SO MUCH BRIANNA!!! 🖤 Haha it was so hard to pick out my top books thoughhh…there was a full on crisis going through my head when I was doing so. I’m pretty sure I already checked out your 2018 favs post, but I’ll check to make sure (i probs didn’t and I’m super sorry!!!). Gosh I’ve been so behind 😭
      I definitely agree about Slammed and Maybe Someday. Those are my two favs from CoHo…AVELOS was pretty amazing, although the ending mad me super sad, annoyed, and angry 😂 AND OF COURSE CROOKED KINGDOM. That book is absolutely amazing and I love it to bits and pieces.

      Thank you so much! It only took me like 3 days to solidify it 😂
      Ok great! Sometimes I worry that my messages don’t go through. I’m so so sorry for replying so late, but YES we are terrible BUT we accept it anyways 😂💞
      I forgot to ask you in that message whether you’ve heard of the song Trouble by Valerie Broussard? I just think that the song goes so well with the Dregs and I think you might like it? 😜

      I hope you’re having an amazing 2019 Brianna, and I hope to talk to you soon 🖤

      1. I GET YOUUU. It took me ages to pick out my top favorite books of the year and I still feel bad about the ones I left out😭 And oh no please don’t worry about checking out my posts or being behind on anything! I’m forever behind on everything so I can relate lol.

        YES CoHo is incredible. I need to reread Slammed and Maybe Someday sooooon💞 Oh yikes I totally forgot about the ending of AVLEOS until you said that and UGH you’re right, that was such a frustrating conclusion.

        CK is too good for words. AND YES WAIT, did you find that Trouble song from this edit?! Because I saw this video recently and AHHHHHH! What a masterpiece. And that song DOES go perfectly with the Dregs.

        I’m going to be catching up on Goodreads stuff in the next couple days (I’m terrible at keeping up on there lol) so you shall receive a response to your message then! Hehe thanks for always being so kind and understanding Kat❤️I hope you’re having a great 2019 so far too and I’ll talk to you SOON!

        But i’m definitely going to check out your posts. Mostly likely tomorrow though because I got a lot of work to finish tonight 😅

        YES I DID! That edit is so amazing and ugh that song represents them so well. I saw it and i almost started crying lol. The Dregs are definitely some bada*s characters 😉

        Don’t worry about it! Tbh you could reply to me in two months and I’d still be happy…But haha same. Sometimes I’ll see something and remind myself to respond or whatnot, but I would always get distracted with hw or studying or something.
        But seriously, don’t worry about responding if you’re busy. I’ll be happy to chat whenever!

        Thanks for being amazing as always Brianna, and I hope to talk/rant with ya soon!! 💗
