I’m linking up this week with Top Ten Tuesday for the Best Books of 2018. This was a rough list to put together, but I think I managed. I read a lot of rereads this year, revisiting series old series that I never finished or gave up on, giving them a second chance. But I still read plenty of gems! Just didn’t get outside my comfort zone and experience new authors as much as I would have liked. That’s why Nalini Singh is on this list four times 🙂 So if you have any new recommendations, let me know in the comments! Nevertheless … my ten best books of 2018 are as follows … 

1. Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh

Allegiance of Honor was number 15 and the final book of the heart-stopping Psy-Changeling series. It was the culmination of the series and everything I hoped! We got to meet up with

2. Silver Silence by Nalini Singh

I loved getting to catch up with the Psy-Changeling world and meet the bear clan! Valentine was positively delightful and I hope we get another peek in their clan too 🙂

3. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

This was such a unique reading experience! I bought this as soon as I saw it because … damn. it’s a beautiful book. But it wasn’t until this year that I actually experienced the story and enjoyed the hell out of the ride!

4. Made You Up by Francesco Zappia

This was a very interesting perspective! I read this for a school project and very much enjoyed the experience. The main character is schizophrenic, something I’ve never experienced in a character, but Francesco’s writing made the experience an enjoyable one.

5. A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas ACOFAS cover to cover book blog kat snark

ACOFAS was a long-awaited bridge between the ACOTAR series and the sister-series to follow. I loved getting a peek at some of my favorite characters !! Was Tamlin a hot mess? yes. Do I feel bad? no.

6. Warcross by Marie Lu

Warcross by Marie Lu cover to cover book blog kat snark

I adore Marie Lu’s writing style, as well as her penchant for anti-heroes and all-around villainy. Warcross was everything I wanted it to be, and more: fast-paced, addicting, delightfully over-the-top and twisty. With a little spice of villainy, because what is Marie Lu without some villainous things? Not Marie Lu, that’s who.

7. Cherish Hard by Nalini Singh

Nalini Singh is one of the best paranormal writers ever, hands down! But her contemporaries always take me by surprise by how good they are.

8. Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody

This one came as a surprise to me! I wasn’t expecting the glorious Six of Crows vibe I got from it, but I loved it and I’ll take it, any day!

9. A Thousand Perfect Notes by CG Drews

A Thousand Perfect Notes by CG Drews PaperFury cover to cover book blog kat snark

In 275 pages, Cait had run me through the emotional gamut and kept my eyes glued to the pages. All without her trademark hilarity and dragon-fetish. Although she just had to mention cake. It wouldn’t be Cait if she didn’t mention cake at some point. Shoot, she overrode all my sleeping intentions – which is no small feat.

10. Vicious by VE Schwab

Vicious by VE Schwab cover to cover book blog kat snarkVicious was, well, vicious and merciless and dark and the villainy faintly seeps from the pages as you pick it up 🙂

11. Rebel Hard by Nalini Singh

Nayna and Raj were so cute together, and it was great to see a romance in modern-day Indian culture. That is not my culture, so experiencing it through Nayna was absolutely thrilling 🙂

12. Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas, hands down! Oh my gosh … it was the perfect goodbye to a huge cast of characters and I cried the whole way :”} **sooobbbbbbs major tears** saying goodbye to some of my favorite characters was heartbreaking and crushed. My. Soul.
