Hey Nerdy Peeps! Here it is the top 8 books I read in 2018. They won’t be in any particular order but the last book I talk about will be my top favorite for 2018. First though let’s talk new posting schedule. Mental health and I are not getting along, and I know I’ve been absent, but that’s going to change. I plan on getting at least two posts out per month.
Since I’ve lost my job back in October it’s been a whirlwind of emotions, and I’ve had no motivation to do much, and that includes writing. I have some stories I need to work but I have no creative motivation and it sucks, but I plan on picking it back up soon. So, stay tuned for new stories!
Top 8 Books I Read in 2018
By Alice La Roux
This book was hot! I loved everything about it and it’s definitely one you need to pick up. It’s also a steamy office romance and who doesn’t like those? It also features the gorgeous Mira who is a girl with some curves, and I loved it! Alice outdid herself on this one!
By Sarah Darer Littman
This book falls under the YA category and I have steered away from those until I picked this one up and couldn’t put it down. Backlash deals with a lot of depression and online bullying which is something that needs to change in this world. I hated reading what Lara was going through, but I loved following her story. Bree was such an ugly “friend” to do what she did. This one is also a must read.
Instructions for a Secondhand Heart
By Tamsyn Murray
Oh now, this one will pull at your heartstrings (no pun intended). It was another book I couldn’t put down and you will love it if you pick it up. This book introduces you to Johnny, who needs a new heart. When Neve loses her twin brother, Leo, Johnny finally gets the heart he’s been needing. A new heart leads to a new relationship between Neve and Johnny.
By Katherine Turner
Here was my spooky read for Halloween. I was on the edge of my seat through every page. When Elaine loses her best friend from something that came out of the Ouija board she has to figure out how to make it go away. Definitely read this one with the lights on because you will be spooked.
By R.R. Banks
I love me some forbidden romances, especially those college professor/student relationships. Falling for your TA should be a crime, but Jude and Veronica wouldn’t let that stop them. Their relationship will pull at every emotion you have and you won’t put the book down.
She’s a Tiger Lily
By Tiffany Carby
Where do I even start with this one? This features the Griffin Gas Company and all their sexy employees. By sexy I mean shirtless hunks who work for a full-service gas station. She’s a Tiger Lily introduces you to the sexy son of Raleigh and Daphne, Wil, he is swoon-worthy and taken. That’s right ladies he’s taken by the gorgeous Lily, so if you want to hear their story… Read the book.
Stay a Little Longer
By Jess Bryant
This was my first male/male romance and I have got to say I’m a fan. Stay a Little Longer features famous country singer Trent Thorne who was outed without wanting to be. Now, he finds himself in the little town of Fate, Texas and next door to the hot cop who is still in the closet. That doesn’t stop them from starting a relationship, but every great relationship has its bumps. Definitely read the book if you want to find out those bumps.
Last but not least… The number one book I read in 2018 is…
Girl Wash Your Face
By Rachel Hollis
This book was a life turner for me. I learned so much about myself through this book. I’ve also worked on myself a lot since I’ve read this book. It has helped me overcome a lot of my insecurities and mental health issues. Of course, mental health is a long, hard journey, but I will get through and thanks to this book I will learn to love myself to get through it.
There ya have it! The top 8 books I read in 2018! These books were definitely my favorite to read for this year. I also plan on reading more from the above authors. Their writing styles and the stories they come up with they are always heartwarming and pull at all the right emotions. I can’t wait to share my 2019 reading list with all of you, so stay tuned for the next post!
