My Top Books of 2018


I read a lot of books and I love a lot of books. Sometimes books touch me at certain times and I find myself obsessed, and other times, I’m just not in the right mindset for a specific book, even though I know in a different circumstance, I might love it. All of that is to say…take this list with a grain of salt. These are a list of my favorite books that I read in  2018, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a ton of other books that I have read and loved, or a bunch other books that missed the mark for me-but that you should definitely read, or a TON of books that I didn’t get a chance to read yet. But here is my list of books that touched me this year, and reminded me of why I read.
