Top Ten Tuesday: Best books of 2018 (so far)

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!
  • Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen | a teenage girl’s life falls to pieces after her beloved brother goes to jail!
  • Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi | an adorable romance develops through many, many texts!
  • Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren | another heartbreaking book, this time about childhood friends-turned-lovers who break up and then are reunited many years later!
  • Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng | an amazing character-driven novel about two suburban families, set in the 90s!
  • Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett | internet friends end up living in the same city but the main character isn’t sure if they should meet up!
  • Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett | friends-turned-lovers-turned-enemies end up stranded together in the woods and have to overcome their issues!

What are the best books you’ve read so far this year?
Help me drown in my neverending TBR by leaving me some recommendations!

    Lovely list! I really like the sound of We are the Ants – it sounds fascinating! I also really want to read more of Maggie Stiefvater, she is brilliant.

      Both Nevernight and Saint Anything were so good! I actually just recommended Nevernight to one of my coworkers because I just can’t stop talking about it. And Sarah Dessen was one of my favorite authors when I was a teenager, so I was really happy to find that I like her books as an adult too. 😊

    What a fantastic list & I agree with you about A LOT of these (at least the ones that I’ve read – so makes me want to check out the rest!). Saint Anything is by far my favorite Dessen novel. Of COURSE The Kiss Quotient and Jenn Bennet 😀 I think I need to bump Emergency Contact up my TBR… 😀
