  1. Great list! I always like seeing people’s favorite reads of the year. I read Spider’s Bite years ago and really enjoyed the series, but I am behind on it now. Kill the Queen sounds good. The Perfectly Paranormal Museum I read to, it was a fun read.

  2. Oooh looks like you have read a LOT of good books this year! I haven’t read any of these, but I am so glad you loved them. I need to do a Top 2018 Books list soon but… it’s hard hahah. Hope you have even more amazing reads in 2019!

    • There where some great reads this year. Many I’ve had on my TBR to try and others where anticipated reads. Glad you stopped in and have a great day!

  5. Fun. I’m doing my own version since the one I did the last few years didn’t host this year. I’m think I should host next year since I love to do this the holiday week. Great choices! Anne – Books of My Heart

    • Ya, the one that does this didn’t host this year or I didn’t see that they where, so I put something together for this week with a bunch of different Top 10 posts. I like seeing all the Top 10’s people do at the end of the year. It gives me more book ideas to add to my TBR. Happy Holidays and thank’s or visiting.

  6. Awesome picks angela! I have a few on my tbr gr list! Shared on my socials!??

    • Thank you for sharing and checking out my top 10 for best read in 2018.

  7. I didn’t read Hot and Badgered yet as I heard that I should read the Pride series first. So I’m working my way through that. There are actually a couple of series I’m working my way through on audio. I’m hoping Pride doesn’t take me too long as I’ve heard great things about Hot and Badgered.

    Great list!

    • I agree that you should read/listen to the Pride series before going into Hot and Badgered. It’s not needed, but you will understand the characters and world more if you do. Some older characters in the Pride series pop up in this new one. Hope you enjoy! Thank’s for visiting.
