My Favorite Reads of January-June 2018

To improve my craft (and because I absolutely love books) I’ve been making a huge effort to read a lot this year. If I have free time, I pick up a book. If I’m doing chores or driving by myself in the car, I listen to audiobooks.

And through all that reading I found some books that I absolutely loved. Below is a list of all of my favorite books I read from January to June this year. I recommend any and all of them.

As a side note: I did not buy all of these books. 100% of these books are available at my local library due to my persistent acquisition requests and their awesomeness. So if you are a person on a budget for books (like me!), make sure you’re utilizing your local library to help you read (and support!) amazing books and authors.

Without further ado, here are my favorite books I read in the first half of 2018! All titles are links to the Goodreads descriptions, so be sure to check them out in more detail!
