Top Ten Tuesday: Best 10 of 2018 {So Far}

Happy Tuesday!! Can you believe that we’re already over half way through 2018 already?! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share the best 10 books we’ve read so far in 2018. I’ve already read far more than I expected to this year–mostly due to my sprawling required reading lists at Oxford–so I have plenty of books to choose from. Picking only ten won’t be easy!

Here’s to another six months of lovely reading days and great books! ❤

What are the best books you’ve read so far this year? What do you think of the ones I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Far From the Tree, Doughnut Economics, Final Draft, and Dear Heart (a poetry anthology) have been some of my best books this year. I think you might like Final Draft: it uses the form of a YA Contemporary book and the style of literary fiction to ask big questions about satisfaction in storytelling and use of cliches.

    1. It’s SO. LONG. I highly recommend the audio book version because you can listen to it while doing other things. It definitely makes it go by more quickly!


  3. Great list! I loved Americanah. I really want to read What Happened, although I’m also not sure if I can stand to read it. I’ve always wanted to read Les Mis, I’ve been lousy about reading classics this year.

  5. Which translation of Les Mis did you read? I’m wanting to read it (at some point in my lifetime, at least) but need to look into which translation would be best for me – I just don’t know where to start!

    1. I read whatever audio book translation was on loan from my local library, so I’m not sure which one it was specifically. I think most translations should do the trick, though! 🙂
