Looking Back at 2018

Another year has come to an end. If you ask me, there is NO way that 2018 had 365 days. At least, that’s not how I felt! Even though time passed quickly, I did manage to read more than twice the books I had planned reading.

Okay, so this is how this review is going to go. I have separated this year’s books into several categories. Shall we?

Old Favorites

Cheyenne Clark Series by David Wellington

Undead Series by MaryJanice Davidson

Artemis Fowl Series by Eoin Colfer

The Hathaways Series by Lisa Kleypas

Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett

Charley Davidson Series by Darynda Jones

Milkweed Triptych Series by Ian Tregillis
Walker Papers Series by C.E.Murphy
A Witchcraft Mystery Series by Juliet Blackwell
Flavia de Luce Series by Alan Bradley
Vlad Taltos Series by Steven Brust

Thursday Next Series by Jasper Fforde
Darko Dawson by Kwei Quartey
The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milán
The Forever War Series by Joe Haldeman
Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
Hidden Legacy Series by Ilona Andrews

Special Mentions

These are books from series that have been consistently good to read for me. How are they different from Old Loves you ask? Even Old Loves had installments that were a hit and a miss. These series didn’t!

Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson

Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
Everwild by Neal Shusterman

New Loves

An Unkindness of Magicians Series by Kat Howard
Karen Memory Series by Elizabeth Bear
Damned Series by Chuck Palahniuk
Johannes Cabal Series by Jonathan L. Howard
The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells
Leningrad Diptych by Catherynne M. Valente
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
Once Upon a Time Machine Volume 2 by Andrew Carl
Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 1 by Gail Carriger
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Pleasant Surprises

These were books from series that had previously left me unimpressed. I had even considered abandoning them but decided to give them one last try. Yaay! These series just got a whole lot better!

Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh
Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger
The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross
Heart of Steel by Meljean Brook
Shadows Linger by Glen Cook

So, I have included the books that I liked in this overview. There were some that obviously weren’t for me, but why dwell on those. Right? Here’s hoping the coming year would be even more fantabulous for all readers and non-readers alike!

Happy New Year!
