As it is the last day of the year, I thought I would share my top 6 books of 2018! Not all of these came out in 2018, but they were the favourites of the 103 (!!!) books I read. I’ll be doing a 2018 reading wrap-up tomorrow, because there’s still time to read for the rest of the day!
Is it just me that thinks this year has been ridiculously long?! Thank goodness I made a 2018 Favourites shelf on Goodreads, otherwise I would not be able to do this list at all… Anyway, speaking of that, these books are just in the order I read them!

Hello all! Today I have another round-up for you all (it’s a bit late, sorry!). Here are the top three books that I read in August 2017. I hope you find some recommendations here!
- The Life Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo (REVIEW)
This was such a great, helpful book. A lot of people really disagree with Marie Kondo, and think that her methods of tidying (ie treating each item you own like it’s a living thing; treating it with respect etc.) are really bizarre, but I actually adore her system. This book has really helped me get my life together, and I’ll definitely be using it so much in the future!
- Basic Witches by Jaya Saxena and Jess Zimmerman (REVIEW)
This book is about, well, witches. I thought that it was a really humorous, and empowering, look at witches, and I loved the collaboration of these two authors. I would love to see them write something else in the future, and would definitely recommend this to teens out there!
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
I mean. Do I really have to say how much I love this book? Harry Potter has, and always will be, one of my favourite series, and re-reading it has made me remember just how much I love it! This is my favourite book in the series, so obviously it’s on my Top August Reads list. ❤
I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post! Let me know in the comments below – what’s your favourite read for August 2017?
Over the course of July 2017 I read 17 books! Of those, here are three which I really loved:
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone (#1) by Laini Taylor
I looooooooved this book! It was wholly encompassing and a brilliant fantasy novel. Karou is a really interesting character and Laini Taylor is such a fabulous writer. I really, really loved this book, and I highly recommend it to everyone! I can’t wait to read Book 2 ASAP!
- Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
Oh-em-geeeee! This book was FABULOUS! It doesn’t actually come out until September 2017, but WHSmith have copies already for the Zoella Book Club. This is such a brilliant book about feminism and zines, and I really hope it inspires so many young people out there when it officially comes out.
- HHhH by Laurent Binet
This book has a lot of hype surrounding it; and it’s very easy to see why. This is the most unique book I’ve ever read. It’s a historical novel like no other, and it’s about two parachutists who I can’t even believe I haven’t heard of before. I would have loved to have written this book myself, let me tell you that! If you love history, if you love faction, if you love uniqueness, read this book!
So there you have my three favourite books of July 2017! What did you read this month? Have you read any of the books I wrote about here? Let me know in the comments below! 😀
