2018 has been a great year with many very enjoyable books that I have read. This list could easily have been twice as long and still left off some quality books that I would quickly recommend. So, of the 70 books that I completed, here are the top 10 (or technically 12 since there are a few series).
Note: there will be several books marked with ** that represent those books that I read out loud to my wife Teri and my 13-year-old son Josh. These books probably got a few brownie points because of the hours of quality time each represented.
10. Orconomics by J. Zachary Pike
9. ** Here Be Dragons by David P. Macpherson
8. The Half Killed by Quenby Olson
7. We Ride the Storm by Devin Madson
6. Paternus: Rise of Gods by Dyrk Ashton
5. Kings of Paradise by Richard Nell
4. Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames
3. ** The Name of the Wind / ** The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
2. The Heart of Stone by Ben Galley
1. ** Senlin Ascends / ** Arm of the Sphinx by Josiah Bancroft
- Red Rising / Golden Son / Morning Star – Pierce Brown
- Godsgrave – Jay Kristoff
- Oathbringer – Brandon Sanderson
- Thunderhead – Neal Shusterman
I have a great list of books already lined up for the first half of 2019. I am very excited to dig in and find some new favorites.
Happy New Year everyone!
