We are 9 months into the year and I’ve read some amazing books so far. Books that are definitely going to make it on my top 10 books for 2018.
Make sure to stay tuned at the end of the year for my top 10 list. Until then, I’ll let you in on 4 books you just HAVE to read! books to read in 2018
The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine
Amber feels like she deserves more out of life. Then she meets Daphne who has it all- beauty, wealth, the perfect kids and the handsome husband. Amber decides that she must have Daphne’s life and stop at nothing to achieve her goal.
I don’t know why this story has stuck with me, but I often find myself thinking about it. Maybe it’s because it helped me out of my reading slump. Fingers crossed that this will be made into a movie!
Not Afraid of the Fall by Kyle James
Kyle and his girlfriend Ashley quit their jobs to trek across 15 countries and 38 cities in 114 days.
Kyle and Ashley got to live my dream of quitting my job, selling everything and taking off for an adventure. I was stressed out and not in the best place when I started this book, but by the time I finished it I was in a better place, I was reminded that my dream of traveling around the world is possible. Plus, I reached out to the author on Instagram and he was so awesome to talk to!
Beartown by Fredrik Backman
Beartown is a tiny town in the middle of a forest that lives and breathes for the local hockey team until one night something happens that will change the small town forever. Check out last month’s post for a more in depth review.
I don’t even know where to start with this one. Beartown will always have a special place in my heart. It was sitting on my shelf forever because I was never in the mood for hockey until one day I decided to give it a chance. I am so glad I finally did. While hockey was talked about a lot it only enhanced the real story. The writing was beautiful. Backman has a way of describing people, communities, and life in a way I have never seen before.
The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
Leni is used to moving around due to family’s lack of money and stability until her dad, who is a former POW receives news that he has inherited land in Alaska from a fallen friend. In the last frontier Leni’s life is forever changed.
This was another one that everybody was talking about that took me awhile to read. Why I waited is beyond me. Hannah’s description of Alaska made you feel like you were there. The struggles of the family pulled at your heart strings and made you realize how complicated the family dynamic can get.
