Top Ten Tuesday - Favorite Books Read in 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader GirlTop Ten Tuesday was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I've read or listened to 89 books this year! I had a difficult time narrowing down my top ten favorite books read in 2018 as I read many wonderful books this year.

I've attached a link to each of my book reviews. This way you can read more in depth detail about my thoughts on each of my favorite books of 2018! 

I've included both fiction and nonfiction books to my list for this week's post.

1. An Untamed State by Roxane Gay
2. All Is Not Forgotten by Wendy Walker
3. Half Past by Victoria Helen Stone
4. I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon
5. Enchantment by Orson Scott Card
6. Why We Can't Wait by Martin Luther King Jr
7. Orchid Fever: A Horticultural Tale of Love, Lust, and Lunacy by Eric Hansen

  1. Great Lisa! After reading Here Comes the Sun (review posted yesterday) I feel I am ready to tackle An Untamed State. Happy New Year and best wishes for your reading in 2019!!!

    1. Thank you!! I look forward to reading your post about Here Comes The Sun. Happy new year to you and best wishes for your reading in 2019!!

  2. I have been wanting to read The Rules Do Not Apply for at least year. Have heard sometimes Levy seems a bit...annoying...what was your experience of that?

    Happy 2019!

    1. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment!!

      I enjoyed Levy's writing very much. Her writing is well done and thought provoking. Click on the link above to read my full review of The Rules Do Not Apply.

      I was annoyed with Jessica Valenti's writing when I read her memoir, Sex Object, earlier this year. Levy's writing is good and on point.

    2. Happy new year to you as well!! Wishing you a wonderful year of reading in 2019!!

  3. Happy New Year, Lisa! I have An Untamed State on my TBR, and will be reading I Was Anastasia this year.

    1. Happy New Year to you as well, Carmen!! You'll have to let me know what you think of I Am Anastasia.
