Top Ten Tuesday -My Favorite Books of the First Half of 2018

Today’s Topic: Books I Decided to DNF (did not finish) too Quickly (are you questioning your DNF choices on any books? If you have a policy to not DNF, put a spin on the topic to make it fit you.)

Hosted By: That Artsy Reader Girl

As you can see, I decided to go with my own topic for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. I almost never DNF a book. So, instead I decided to share my favorite reads so far this year. So far, my tally of books read for the year sits just under forty. I’m happy to say that I have enjoyed the majority of them. That makes it hard to narrow down my favorites. However, as they say, it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.

Some of these are single titles, many by authors I’ve never read before. Then there are also titles in series which I’m already obsessed with.

Single Titles

A clever twist on the Dickens classic. My review.

I love every one of this author’s historical romances.

Made me fall in love with a city. Vienna has now edged out Paris as my city of dreams.

Absolutely lived up to its’ hype. Now I can’t wait for the film adaptation. My review.

Another brilliant reimagined classic. This time it is Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, set during the Prohibition. My review.

Not my normal genre. Absolutely creepy, chilling and atmospheric. My review.

Read this based on its’ excellent reviews. Love the 1920’s small town girl hits the big city of Chicago story.

Series Titles

The Girl Next Door Series -Waited forever for this third title and wasn’t disappointed. Fast-paced, intense and utterly captivating. My review.

Creek Country Saga-I became totally engrossed by the history and culture of the Muscogee Indians in the early 1800’s Gulf Coast. My review.

Descendent of the House of Bathory -A well-done conclusion to this psychological thriller.

Storm and Silence Series -I am absolutely obsessed with the love/hate relationship and continued adventures of Rikkard Ambrose and his employee Lilly Linton. My review of the first title Storm and Silence.

Amory Ames Mysteries -I fell hard for this 1930’s upper crust, female, English wannabe detective. My reviews of the first and second titles Murder at the Brightwell and Death Wears a Mask. 

What are some of your favorite books so far this year?

  2. I’m very pleased by your change of topic! It’s always fun to talk about books we DNF but it’s also enjoyable to see a little more positivity. I’m very intrigued by many of the titles you listed and will definitely be checking them out in the future when my schedule permits it. Great list!
