(Almost) every week I participate in The friday five. A little while ago Joost asked if there were any bloggers who’d like to join him in doing this and I said I did. This week the subject is:Best books of 2018. How hard is it to only pick my five favorites out of 100 reads…. Well this took some thinking.
Dear Martin – Nic Stone
After reading The hate you give, I totally got why it got hyped as much as it did. That was until I read Dear Martin, because this book deserved to be hyped even more that Thug did. This book had much more of an impact on me.
Leah on the offbeat – Becky Albertally
The newest book in the Simon verse had to be in this post, that’s for sure. This one was most likely my favourite, since I adresses even more important topics that the others did.
Secrets for the mad – Dodie Clark
Dodie is one of my favourite artist, so this book had to be on this list. It was so creative and well written. She wrote about life honestly, without sugar coating anything.
Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell
Honestly I don’t remeber a lot of this book, since I read it at the begining of the year, but I remember it was a strong story. I can’t spoil anything, but it was good to read a novel that didn’t stick to the normal contemporary “rules”
The lunar chronicles – Marissa Meyer
I haven’t read Fairest and Stars above yet, so I haven’t really finished this series yet. The main book I really enjoyed. I loved meeting Marissa earlier this year, she was incredibly kind to her readers.
