Top 3 Thursday: Books I Read in 2018

I hope you’ve all had a restful, relaxing, or loud and fun, Christmas break! I’m so glad I still have another week before I’m back at work, I think I’m still catching up on sleep from early December…

In other news, I don’t know why I’ve done this to myself with this week’s theme. Choosing a Top 3 this year is possibly one of the hardest years I’ve had to do it!

I’ll give it a red hot go, and try to spread out the genres so maybe you’ll find one below you also love.

1. Pachinko – Min Jin lee

Our first ever book club read, and while it’s certainly not the most feel-good book out there, it’s fantastically written and you get so drawn in to the story.

You can read my full review here.

2. Queendom of the Seven Lakes – A. B. Endacott

If you’re looking for a way to support an independent Australian author, Alice is one of the best I know. I’m not typically a fantasy reader, but Queendom (and really all of Alice’s releases so far) was such an interesting, captivating read. Her world-building is spectacular without being over the top or confusing, and her characters have such great depth.

3. Emergency Contact – Mary H K Choi

This one snuck in with a week to spare! A diverse YA read with a compelling cast of characters. I couldn’t put it down and I’m so glad I got to read it this year!

Read more of my thoughts on it here.

What have been some of your favourite reads this year?

Until next week,

  1. For me I’ve found so many wonderful books this year. I think one that really made an impression was The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo – it blew me away, made me cry, and just really impressed me. While I loved both Nevermoor and Wundersmith by the divine Jessica Townsend. Better than Harry Potter!
