Finally I am here with my Top 10 list of favorite books from 2018. I read many amazing books last year and it was difficult to come down with just 10 books for this list. But here is a list of 10 books that entered my favorites list, in no particular order –
Signal to Noise is a magical realism novel written by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.
I read a total of 96 books in 2017, out of which a major portion were graphic novels and comics. I will do a separate best graphic novels/comics list. This list just has full length novels. I loved way too many books this year but I am narrowing the list to include 12 books only. Continue reading
I have always been a collector of key chains, bookmarks, books, CDs, DVDs etc. I like collecting so my house and my room in my parents’ house had turned into a museum. I did not use more than 50% of the items I owned and they were just there because I did not want to throw them. I also buy small knick-knacks, souvenirs which accumulate over time.

I am listening to Heartless by Marissa Meyer and I am enjoying that book so much, mostly because it is making me nostalgic about Alice in Wonderland. I love Alice in Wonderland and it is one of my most favorite books of all time. I am planning to reread the book soon and that was when I thought of making a list of my favorite books so that I can make time to read these books again soon.
The following are my most favorite books of all time. These are books that have been my favorites from a long time and have stood the test of time. Some of these I have reread and some of these have been only read once. The plan is to reread the ones that I have only read once.
After reading Jane Eyre in February and liking it, I was interested in reading other books by the Bronte sisters. I picked Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte this month expecting it to be boring in parts like Jane Eyre. I had a feeling I would end up reading this book whole of March and maybe in April as well. But I could not be more wrong as this book gripped me totally and I could not pick up any other book until I was done reading this book.
I have been suffering from reading slump this month for some reason. In general, the political climate in the country is bad and I am stressed out because of various things in personal life too. I haven’t been able to finish a single novel this month as I am not able to concentrate much on anything. In situations like this, dystopian novels come handy. When you think your life is horrible and you read a dystopian novel, you feel your world is much better than the one in the book. At least we don’t have people burning books or killing each other on streets right? 🙂
Here are some dystopian books that I have enjoyed in the past. I love this genre a lot and keep reading books from this genre often.
