Christina, I love your list from this year and last. I definitely just upped the quantity on my overflowing TBR by a few titles. Several I actually have on there already but always can use the nudge from other people’s comments to move them up the list. On your 2018 list, we obviously both loved Heartbreak Warfare!! I also really enjoyed Birthday Girl! Thanks for sharing!

There were so many good books this year! It was really hard to narrow them down.

I haven’t read any of these. I do see a lot of favorite authors and titles of the readers here. Some books to go look up, thanks for sharing.

What a list!! OMG, I started following this blog in early 2017 and since then, I’ve come to adore Maryse and her blog. I stalk this page a few times a day on Tuesday’s and Friday’s because I know that she will update as new things are released. I’m gonna have to dive into Warfare! I’ve seen it mentioned several times and each mention has been a rave about how good it is. All I have to see is the name Kate Stewart and it’s an instant one-click. So, I own it but haven’t read it. I own all but Trailer Park Heart. Birthday Girl is a favorite of mine for 2018!!! Each new list is making me feel like a slacker, lol! I’ve read a ton of awesome books and haven’t got around to reading some of the awesome books that people are mentioning. Someone else mentioned Pestilence by Laura Thalassa and I jumped right in and loved every word! Now, I’m torn between Hate Notes and Warfare!!! I’ll end up reading a chapter from one book, then a chapter in the other. Thanks for a great list Christina.

Christina-Your list made me remember A Nordic King that was a fave of mine too but somehow forgot to put it on my list! Heartbreak Warfare, Trailer Park Hearts and Bloodstained Beauty favorites of mine too. Enjoyed Hate Notes! We have very similar book tastes now to go and move up and or add to TBR. Thanks for sharing

Lots of shinies up there I want to try! :)

Thanks for sharing Christina. I’ve hardly read any of yours (yet!). I love these lists.

Tessa December 31, 2018 at 8:35 PM

Loved Dirty Headlines and The Peer and the Puppet. Both so good. Hate Notes looks good. Great list.

Linda December 31, 2018 at 9:10 PM

Great list Christina. Loved Trailer Park Hearts, A Nordic King and of course Heartbreak Warfare I think is on everyone’s favorite list. Need to jump into Pretty Venom!!

Absolutely loved BIRTHDAY GIRL. I’ve actually read many of your list. Like minds!

Ashley January 1, 2019 at 8:54 AM

Ooh! What a fun list to wake up to in 2019!

Steph N January 2, 2019 at 7:42 PM

I’ve read 3 on your list and I think all three made it into my top reads! So I’m now going to have to add the other to my growing tbr!

Wonderful list, Christina! I also loved Bloodstained Beauty and directly after it, I read Cold Cole Heart by K. Webster (it’s on *my* best of 2018 list), which had some similarities. If you haven’t read it, you should give it a try.

Awwww, Trailer Park Heart was soooo good!

Thanks for sharing your favorites, Christina!!
