Top 10 of 2018: Best of the Best

~ Top 10 Books of 2018 ~

10. A Sky Painted Gold by Laura Wood

A Sky Painted Gold is not my usual type of read. I usually stick to fantasy books but I adored the cover of this book and decided to give it a go. A Sky Painted Gold is beautifully written and everything about it is just stunning. I finished it in one sitting so naturally it had to be one of my top reads of the year.

9. Tarnished City (Dark Gifts #2) by Vic James

The Dark Gifts series was one of the series that I read in its completion this year. I absolutely loved every single moment of the full series but it was the middle book of the series which was my absolute favourite. This series is so dark and really thought-provoking and this comes out the most in Tarnished City. 

8. Eve of Man (Eve of Man #1) by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher

I've always been a massive fan of Giovanna's adult novels so I was super excited to hear about Eve of Man. I absolutely loved this incredible dystopia novel. I adore dystopia books and I think having this as a duel point of view made it so much more addicting as you saw two very different perspectives of the ongoings of this skewed society. It was brilliant and I cannot wait for book 2.

7. The Orphan Queen (The Orphan Queen #1) by Jodi Meadows

I am an enormous fan of YA Fantasy novels and this one had been on my radar for ages. I finally got around to reading it and I absolutely loved it. It is the perfect YA Fantasy book filled with a kick-ass heroine and an amazing hero to sweep her off her feet. I adored it.

6. Hourglass (Hourglass #1) by Myra McEntire

Hourglass is a book that was recommended to me forever ago and I just never got around to it. It was totally different than I expected. It's a fantasy filled with mystery, romance and a dash of time travel. I absolutely adored it and it breaks my heart a little knowing that it's currently out of print. I am very lucky to own all three books and I cannot wait to read the other two.

5. Nyxia (Nyxia Triad #1) by Scott Reintgen

Nyxia was the surprise of the year. It's not the kind of book I typically would have bought myself but after it was featured in one of the Illumicrate boxes I read it and freaking loved it. It's amazing and filled to the brim with mystery, science and space, what more could you want? I am so excited to read the other books in the series.

4. The Belles (The Belles #1) by Dhonielle Clayton

A YA Dystopia that tells the story of what beauty really means. It's totally different to what I expected based off the cover but I bloody loved it. It was so thought-provoking and had some amazing underlying messages. I cannot wait for the second book of the series to come out.

3. Children of Blood and Bone (Orisha Legacy #1) by Tomi Adeyemi

Children of Blood and Bone was one of the best surprises of the year for me. A YA fantasy filled with action and magic and based off West African mythology it was just stunningly brilliant. I'm a huge lover of books based off mythology and I've never really come across any of the mythology that's within this book and that just made it even better for me as I found it all absolutely fascinating. I loved every moment.

2. The Darkest Star (Origin #1) by Jennifer L Armentrout

For anyone who knows me, they won't be surprised to see The Darkest Star as one of my favourite books of the year. Jennifer L Armentrout is one of my favourite authors of all time and her Lux series is one of my go-to re-reads. So you can imagine my excitement and love for the spin off series. The Darkest Star was utterly perfect and brilliant. I cannot wait for book 2.

1. Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass #7) by Sarah J Maas

Kingdom of Ash is a book I've been waiting for for years and it was perfect. It broke me so much... like seriously... I was sobbing for hours but it was just a brilliant ending to one of my favourite series of all time. I loved every single moment of all 998 glorious pages. It was perfect!
