Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s theme is best books of 2018 (so far) and I’m not really sure what I’m going to do at the end of the year, because I couldn’t even narrow this list down to ten books. LOOKS LIKE IT’S A TOP 16 TUESDAY TODAY.
- Arrogant Devil by R.S. Grey | a steamy enemies-to-lovers romance featuring a whole heck of a lot of sexual tension!
- The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang | a Pretty Woman-inspired romance featuring a heroine with Asperger’s and the male escort she hires to teach her about sex!
- Nevernight by Jay Kristoff | a teenage girl heads off to assassin school so that she can avenge her father’s death!
- The Beau & the Belle by R.S. Grey | a romance featuring a reunion between the heroine and her (much older) childhood crush!
- We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson | an absolutely heartbreaking story about a teenage boy who is alternatively bullied and abducted by aliens!
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater | my favorite (I think) of all the Raven Cycle books!
