This post is a long time coming and for some reason I just haven’t put it up on my blog. It has been placed on my youtube channel and you can also watch it down below. These books were some of my favorite reads from 2018. I tried to only pick 5 because I read a lot of good books last year and I didn’t just want to gush about all of the books I read during the year. I still kind of cheated though as I made it into two videos. One video for favorites and one video for favorite romance and contemporaries. As someone who self proclaimed as a fantasy reader, I was surprised at the amount of romance and contemporary that I read during 2018, especially towards the end of the year. Anyway, let’s get down to this list, starting with my favorite reads of 2018! None of these books are in any particular order.
My Favorite YA Fantasy books of 2018:
- Three Dark Crowns, Kendare Blake
- Children of Blood and Bone, Tomi Adeyemi
- Tower of Dawn, Sarah J Maas
- Kingdom of Ash, Sarah J Maas
- An Ember in the Ashes, Sabaa Tahir
A lot of these books I’ve talked about through out the year, and some of them I have reviews up on my youtube channel of. I will link those above, and I talk about some of these books a lot more in the video!
Next up are my favorite my favorite Contemporaries of 2018:
- The Kiss Quotient, Helen Hoang
- The Proposal, Jasmine Guillroy
- Dumplin, Julie Murphy
- Intercepted, Alexa Martin
- Curing Doctor Vincent, Renea Mason
- Odd One Out, Nic Stone
I kind of cheated on this list and added in a sixth just because I felt like all of these needed to be talked about.

He is one of the top people in his class and is possibly headed to Yale, but as he is trying to help his ex-girlfriend get into the car after she was drinking, somehow he is the one who is in handcuffs and is being yelled at by police. After that experience he is questioning everything he ever thought of. He is wondering is that all people are ever going to see of him? A black male to be afraid of and to deem as a threat?

I really enjoyed Dear Martin by Nic Stone! The way it was written really brought the whole thing together. I loved the concept of writing letters to Martin Luther King Jr to try and figure out what was going on in Justyce’s life. Stone brought together so many concepts and ideas that made it a wonderful read. The book is small, but it is mighty. I know this a short and choppy review to put up on this blog, but my full review is on my BookTube channel where you can also find the information to enter into a giveaway!! There are still 8 days left to enter the giveaway of a signed copy of Dear Martin! Until next time,
