10 Notable Books I’ve Read in 2018 (So Far..)

Hello friends! —- Today’s post is about the 10 most notable books that I’ve read this year. As I’m writing this post, I’ve read 96 books so far this year. That’s a lot. It’s freakin’ June and this honestly proves how much of a social life that I don’t have. Which I’m 50% OK with, because that means that I get to read more books.

So here are the books that had some sort of impact on me, so far this year. In no particular order:


Speedbump by Charli Coty

Speedbump is a LGBTQIA+ Romance novel. There’s a lot about this novel that happens. I like the two points of view that take place in Speedbump. I like that each character POV is on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, and I adore their happy ending.  (my review)

Flight Season by Marie Marquardt

Flight Season Romance novel where the main character learns the value of friendship, hard work, and first love. The ending to Flight Season is one that sticks with me to this day. — I read Flight Season more than 4 months ago. Also, Flight Season made me majorly tear up, so you should read Flight Season for that alone. (my review)

Standing Sideways by J. Lynn Bailey

Standing Sideways does have some triggering content. Other than that, I enjoyed reading Livia’s story, and I’m glad that we were able to see her struggles so clearly—and what she does in terms of healing. (my review)

Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers

Assassin’s Heart swept me off my feet and kept me captivated until the very last page. And then I wished for more of Lea’s story! I love the chase of revenge, and setting wrongs to right that takes place in Assassin’s Heart. I also loved getting to see Lea fall in-love for the first time, and I enjoyed seeing how Lea had grown so much as a character. (my review)

Saving Me by Sadie Allen

Saving Me was actually a book that I was wary to read at first. There are some triggering scenes in the story. Yet, not too far into reading Saving Me, I was grateful that I had read it. (my review)

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

I didn’t really think anything of The Wicked Deep, but after a while the story just stuck with me and I can’t get it out of my head! Which is true to form, with what happens in The Wicked Deep. (my review)

The Wild Hunt by Ron N. Nieto

To be fair, I didn’t expect much from The Wild Hunt before I read it because I’ve read quite a few fae stories before. I know of the shim-sham between the Seelie and the Unseelie. What garnered my attention though was that the main characters new friend (for lack of a better term at the moment) is actually a kelpie. (my review)

If I Tell You by Alicia Tuckerman

Oh man. I had difficulties reading If I Tell You because of all the homophobia that is spewed in the main characters’ direction. And then the ending of this book totally made me bawl my eyes out for a good while. I remember it took me the better part of a night to be able to work through all that grief and sorrow. (my review)

Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

Emergency Contact is that awkward, just got to college, and I’m experiencing my first major crush book. With lots of texts and truths and friendships. I love Emergency Contact. (my review)

    I’ve not read any of these but the one I hope to read at some point is The Wicked Deep. The story sounds like one I would really enjoy and I can’t wait to see if that’s the case.
