As I had so much fun participating in my first #SixForSunday post, I couldn’t resist joining another weekly challenge! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly series hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is ‘Best Books I’ve Read In 2018 (So Far)’.
I love books that make me cry with heartbreak as well as with laughter, so when I saw the prompt for this week’s #SixForSunday, I just had to join in! After searching my GoodReads shelves, here are my six.
When I saw the Mid Year Book Freakout Tag on The Terror of Knowing, I had to have a go myself. I have read about 30 books so far, and I was considering doing a mid-year check in, but a book freakout sounds so much more fun! The tag was originally created by Ely and Chami – make sure to go check out their channels and show them some love.
It would appear that I’m at the halfway point of my GoodReads reading challenge for the year. Woohoo! Let me tell you about the 25th book I have read this year; Clean by Juno Dawson.
Clean by Juno Dawson
Publication Date: 5th April 2018
Format: Paperback, 400 pages
Synopsis: When socialite Lexi Volkov almost overdoses, she thinks she’s hit rock bottom. She’s wrong. Because rock bottom is when she’s forced into an exclusive rehab facility. From there, the only way is up for Lexi and her fellow inmates, including the mysterious Brady. As she faces her demons, Lexi realises love is the most powerful drug of all … It’s a dirty business getting clean.
It’s time for my monthly Wrap Up and TBR post! (I am determined to make this a thing)
The aim of this reading game is to help me read more books and hopefully get on top of the ever-growing To Be Read pile. The more books I read, the more books I can buy. The more books I can buy, the more books I can read. It’s a win-win, right?
WARNING: this book will cause shortness of breath and heart palpitations. Today I am sharing with you my thoughts on Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough.

I enjoy reading monthly Wrap Up and TBR posts (as well as watching them on YouTube) and you know me, I couldn’t resist writing my own. I hope writing this type of post on a regular basis will help to read more and hopefully get on top of the ever-growing To Be Read pile. The more books I read, the more books I can buy. The more books I can buy, the more books I can read. It’s a win-win, right?
