I reached my Goodreads goal of reading 30 books in 2018 with months to spare! It is all because I got a Kindle Paperwhite on Prime Day this year, and I figured out how to borrow e-books from the library. It has made reading so much easier (and cheaper).  I did not specify that these needed to be new to me books, but I am not including repeats like Harry Potter in my ranking of favorites.

I will probably update my goal with another 10 books, but here’s the 30 I read this year, in order that I read them:

  1. Kenobi– John Miller
  2. Welcome to Nightvale– Jeffrey Cranor (Favorite podcast as well. WtNV is amazing)
  3. Mostly Void, Partially Stars– Jeffrey Cranor
  4. A Glimmer of Hope– Steve McHugh
  5. The Sword of Summer– Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson with Norse gods. Love it.)
  6. Wall of Storms– Ken Liu (Slow beginning, but it got good eventually)
  7. Thrawn– Timothy Zhan (This guys is my favorite Star Wars author hands down)
  8. Lords of the Sith– Paul S. Kemp
  9. Bloodlines– Karen Traviss
  10. Choices of One– Timothy Zhan
  11. A Shadow of What was Lost– James Islington (Favorite new author and series discovery. The final book of the trilogy comes out next year, and I am so ready)
  12. Chamber of Secrets– J.K. Rowling
  13. Prisoner of Azkaban– J.K. Rowling
  14. An Echo of Things to Come– James Islington
  15. Amulet of Samarkand– Jonathan Stroud (This one was also a repeat, but I do love this series)
  16. Traitor Born– Amy Bartol (Sequel to a book I got from the free monthly Kindle book through Amazon Prime. Kind of Hunger Games-ish. I like the series so far.)
  17. Goblet of Fire- J.K Rowling
  18. Order of the Pheonix– J.K. Rowling
  19. Cousin’s War– Phillipa Gregory (This was actually three books in one)
  20. Throne of Glass– Sarah J Maas (Totally intrigued. Can’t wait for the next one to come from the library.)
  21. Half Blood Prince– J.K. Rowling
  22. Deathly Hallows– J.K. Rowling
  23. The Fire Queen– Emily R. King (Another series I started thanks to Amazon Prime Kindle book of the month thing. Also good.)
  24. The Rogue Queen– Emily R. King
  25. Maul: Lockdown– Joe Schreiber (I expected more from a Darth Maul book, but I still liked it.)
  26. A Court of Thorns and Roses– Sarah J Maas (Okay. So, this one cheats because there are Beauty and the Beast elements and I am weak.)
  27. The Last Tudor– Phillipa Gregory
  28. The White Princess– Phillipa Gregory
  29. Three Sisters, Three Queens– Phillipa Gregory
  30. Sharp Objects– Gillian Flynn (Have not watched the HBO show yet, but holy crap this book’s twists)

Out of the new to me books on my list, the ones by James Islington and Timothy Zhan are my favorite. I love the Phillipa Gregory books as well, but Tudor England is my favorite time period. I am also becoming a fan of Gillian Flynn and Sarah J Maas, so we’ll see where that goes later on.
