Happy New Year's Eve! It's hard to believe it's the last day of 2018. I feel like I just wrote our 2017 Top Ten Favorites lists. This year has flown by. As I'm writing this post I feel like I ran out of time to read more books, write more reviews, and post more bookish features. While I wasn't as active here on the blog, I have posted a lot more bookish features over on Instagram. Check us out here.

I am so excited to share one of our favorite posts of the year! Our top 10 favorite reads of the year. Normally it's hard for us to narrow our lists. In previous years we couldn't, and ended up with more than ten. This year we may have been a bit more pickier with our 5 star ratings than in years past. Without further ado, here is our Top Ten Favorite Books of 2018

We always love comparing our lists after we make them. We love seeing which books we collectively have on our lists. This year we only had 4 books that were on at least two of our lists. The Cruel PrinceObsidio, as well as Ghosts of the Shadowmarket and Leah On The Offbeat.
