In 2018 I read 54 books, and according to Goodreads, that figured out at 19408 pages. Interestingly, I figured out that while I read less books than I did in 2017, I read longer books so more pages. The longest being It by Stephen King at 1376 pages, which is just obscenely long, but also a lot of 400-500 page books that I wouldn’t have dreamed picking up in the past.

But which were my favourites?
Third place goes to… Autoboyography by Christina Lauren!
I’ll be talking more about this when I finally catch up with my monthly reading posts but I read this in hours, as an audiobook, which is so unlike me. And it’s a YA romance, which isn’t my genre. This just blew me away on so many levels and has me searching for more M/M romance to fill the gap this has left in my heart.
Second place goes to… The Ninth Rain by Jen Williams!
Sometimes a book is refreshing. It reminds you why you like reading in the first place and the real magic of a good story. You can read my full
review rave here because I truly need to stop myself before this becomes another post all about how great this book is and how everyone should read it right this second.
My favourite book in 2018 was… The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot!
Of course, my favourite book this year was a classic! It’s wild to me that looking back to when I started this blog, I was truly anti-classic. This was a wonderful book, and the only one in 2018 to make me cry. If classics aren’t your thing, give The Mill on the Floss a try, it’s progressive and charming and heartbreaking and a true English delight.
