Top 5 Favorite Books of 2018

Over the span of this year I managed to read 72 books and from those, I have picked the top 5 which I enjoyed the most, so without further ado here are my 5 favorite reads from 2018.

1.) Up first we have Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare, which is the final book in the Dark Artifices trilogy. I started this series at the beginning of the year and once I finished Lord of Shadows I could not wait for this book to come out, and let me say it did not disappoint. The ending of Lord of Shadows left me needing to find out what was going to happen, and with all that went on in this book, it was well worth the wait. This book took us to places we've never gone before and went deeper into Shadowhunter mythology and I loved it so much.

2.) Second on the list is Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas, which is the final book in the Throne of Glass series. Although I have had problems with some parts of the story, I still love the characters and world of these books and seeing it come to an end made me sad. I will say though that this book brought a perfect end to the series. Everything seemed to wrap up nicely and while there were some devastating scenes I was very satisfied with the way it ended.

3.) The third book on this list was one I hadn't heard about until after it came out, but it's definitely one of my favorites of all time now. The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang is the start of a military fantasy series and I didn't know I needed it in my life until I finished it. The story and characters are so beautifully written, especially since this is the author's debut novel. I fell in love with the world of it and I can't wait to see what comes next.

4.) Fourth on the list is History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera. This book follows the events after Griffen's ex-boyfriend Theo passes away and goes back in forth from the past into the present. This writing in this story was absolutely beautiful and I could not put it down. Even in the moments that broke my heart and brought me to tears, I found myself wanting to read more. After finishing this book I definitely found a new favorite author.

5.) Last on the list is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I read this book for my English class this year, and this was the first assigned reading book that I genuinely was interested in. I don't know what it was about this book, but I really enjoyed reading it and seeing what went on in the Roaring 20's.
