Top 10 Best 2018 Releases (So Far)

There have been a lot of amazing releases this year, so far. Obviously, I haven’t been able to read them all, but I still wanted to talk about some of my favorites!  There are a few I haven’t quite gotten to yet (A Reaper At The Gates) so don’t think they’re not on this list because I hated them. I just haven’t had the time to read them (or I’m really afraid to read them, like with Reaper. Please Sabaa don’t hurt these characters anymore they need a break!) Also, I’m not including any books being released after June, I’ll make a different list in December or January covering all of those releases.

Okay on with the top ten!

Sidenote: I’m extremely indecisive so they aren’t in any particular order, with the exception of the first three probably being my top 3 reads this year.

Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

[ UPDATE: I’ve edited this review since my initial posting, dropping the rating from a 4.5 to a 3 (and that’s me being nice). The more I think about this book, the more I realized how disappointing it is, and how unnecessary it feels. It was a money grab disguised as fan service. ]

Overall: 3/5 Stars
Characters: 4/5
Setting: 4/5
Writing: 3/5
Plot and Themes: 2/5
Awesomeness Factor: 2/5
Review in a Nutshell:
A Court of Frost and Starlight is a fluffy, quick read that sets up the next book in the universe. It’s basically a filler christmas fanfic.
