Mid-Year Review: My Top 10 Reads from January – June

I was inspired to join in on Top 10 Tuesday by my fellow Facebook Book Bloggers Group  members Book Tales by MeThe Limit of Books Does Not Exist, and Bloodthirsty Little Beasts. Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic was Best Books I’ve Read in 2018 (So Far).

I am obviously tardy to the party by posting so late (though it is still Tuesday!); I wanted to share my Top 10 list because this year has been my best reading year yet!

Here are my Top 10 Reads from the first half of 2018 (January – June):

Want to know why I loved this group of books so much? My review links can be found all in one place here: https://saturdaynitereader.com/book-reviews-a-to-z/

What have been your stand out books that you read this year? Have you read any of one’s I listed above and agree/disagree with their top 10 status? Can’t wait to hear how your reading year has been!

Talk to Me Tuesday: 2018 Reading Goals

Goodreads Challenge

It’s a new year with a new goal. I am aiming high and working towards reading 100 books this year (that is 34 more than I read in 2017)! If I can read at a pace of 2 books a week, then I got this. Wish me luck!

What are your 2018 goals? Whether it be book count, adding a new genre, trying a new author – what have you – talk to me: would love to hear from you.

If you read over 100 books in 2017, what are your tips? How did you keep motivated? Keep up pace? etc. Share your secrets with us. 😉 

Share your 1st Book of the Year!


I happened to stumble upon Brona’s Books blog – Hi Brona! – where I learned of a really cool book share tradition hosted by Shelia at Book Journey.

Share what you plan your 1st book of 2018 will be with Shelia, and on January 1st she will be posting our submissions for all to see. You can look forward to adding to your ever growing TBR list when you view your fellow book lovers’ submissions.

More details on how to share your book choice with Shelia can be found here.

I look forward to seeing what you all have submitted! You will have to wait and see what I selected too: you can try and guess, but I still won’t tell  😉
