My Top 20 Books of 2018

2018 is almost over! It has been a funny old year on a personal level but a wonderful year for discovering new and up coming authors as well as welcome returns of some of my favourites.

So to see out the end of this year I thought I would present to you (if anyone actually reads this!) My top 20 reads of the year.

In no particular order!



The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale

The Feed by Nick Clark Windo

Legendary (Caraval #2) by Stephanie Garber

The Burning Hill by A.D. Flint

Cut and Run by Mary Burton

The Secrets Between Us by Laura Madeleine

The Dangerous Kind by Deborah O’Connor

Of Blood and Bone (Chronicles of The One #2) by Nora Roberts

The Bird King by G. Willow Wilson

Last Letter Home by Rachel Hore

Stone Mothers by Erin Kelly

The Moon Sister by Lucinda Riley (The Seven Sisters #5)

Death Is Not Enough by Karen Rose (The Baltimore Series Book 6)

The Chalk Man by C. J. Tudor

The Winter Secret by Lulu Taylor

The Little Snake by A.L. Kennedy

It was no easy feat narrowing it down to 20 but all these books are more than worthy to be on this list!

Now on to 2019 and I hope it will be a better, kinder year and I already have a massive To Be Read pile to see me well into 2019 🙂 Happy reading and Happy writing.

Happy New Year 


  1. I listened to Chalk Man as an audiobook and was completely hooked, both by the plot and the brilliant narration, especially Andrew Scott’s sections. It would definitely make my top 20, too, possibly top 10 if restricted to audiobooks (though I’m new to them!)I’ll check out your others, so thanks for this.
