2018 is coming to an end and aside from the approaching of a new year (and making new resolutions?), that also means it's time for a reflection of the books I read and which titles have made it onto my top reads. Without further ado, here's the list of my top ten reads of 2018 (not in order):

Honorable Mention

Reading Statistics: 
Male Authors: 15
Female Authors: 52
Thriller/Suspense/Mystery: 52
Contemporary Romance: 10
Fantasy: 3
Historical: 2

Horror: 4
YA: 2

So there you have it. From the look of it, I read more thriller/suspense/mystery books than books from other genres so my reading goal next year is to have a more balanced read. I hope I can do it. 

What's your favourite books of the year? And since this will be my last post of 2018, I'd like to wish you a very Happy New Year

    Melody, several of your top 10 are on my TBR and some I already own. I've read The Chalk Man, The Broken Girls, and Our House. All very good. My plans for 2019 are to have no plans. We'll see what I end up reading - I'm looking forward to it. :-)
