Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! How crazy is it that we’re over half way through 2018?! I seriously can’t believe it. This week’s top is our favorite reads from the first half of the year and I’m excited to share these! Enjoy!
Check out my reviews page for reviews of these novels. Books listed alphabetically.
Jo’s Boys by Louisa May Alcott // Surprisingly loved this third installment about the March family. Nearly as good as Little Women.
The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall // The first book in my favorite series of 2018. I love these books and I can’t wait to read the last two!
Daring Greatly by Brené Brown // A truly life changing book. Her research about vulnerability, shame, and courage has changed my life.
Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens // I had high expectations and they were all met. Made me fall in love with Dickens and want to read more of his books.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman // Completely original and completely fascinating. Melded my love of Harry Potter with beautiful storytelling and compelling characters.
The Lady of the Lakes by Josi S. Kilpack // My favorite historical romance that I’ve finished thus far this year. Especially because of the literary hero.
Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano // A simply gorgeous novel about the power of home, food, love and faith
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle // Technically a reread for me but it felt like the first time. A fantastic novel with so much more depth than I expected.
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson // I loved this book from the first page and cannot recommend it highly enough. One of my recent favorites period.
Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch // Probably my favorite book setting this year. Such a sweet story with a beautiful ending. Can’t wait to read her latest!
