Most of the time when we come across a fantasy novel, it will be part of some series. There are hardly any standalone fantasy novels written. I sometimes prefer standalone novels as these days I don’t have enough time to sit and finish 8-10 books of 1200 pages each. Life has gotten so busy that it is difficult for me to focus on any book which is longer than 500 pages these days.
Here are some standalone fantasy novels that I have read or would like to read in the near future.
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 –

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 read some books on minimalism and they gave me a new perspective towards life.
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.
