Halfway through 2018 – Bookish Reflections

We have now officially passed the halfway point of 2018.

Looking back at my reading year so far, I thought I’d share my top ten reads of the 57 books I’ve read since January 1, 2018.

I’ve linked the book titles to my review.  As usual, my favourites were a mixture of mystery, thriller, and literary fiction titles. All of these were well deserved 5 star reads!

#1   “Us against you” by Fredrik Backman

#2  “The possible world” by Liese O’Halloran Schwarz

#3   “Persons unknown” by Susie Steiner

#4   “The broken girls” by Simone St. James

#5   “The detective’s daughter” by Lesley Thomson

#6   “Then she was gone” by Lisa Jewell

#7   “The Wildling sisters” by Eve Chase

#8   “Tin man” by Sarah Winman

#9  “Dark game” by Rachel Lynch

#10  “From the cradle” by Louise Voss and Mark Edwards

Are any of these titles favourites of yours?

    I have read three of these ones and agree with your choice. I have a few of the others on my TBR and will be getting them from the library. Great summary of the first 6 months.


  4. I’m so glad you liked The Possible World. I finished it last week and loved it so much!
