Best Books I’ve Read In 2018 (So Far)
I have been fortunate to be blessed, although in lower numbers, with some quality reading thus far this year. Here are ten books I have enjoyed the most:
- The House on the Strand by Daphne du Maurier – A gripping, gothic suspense, which had me time-travelling back to the wild, dangerous Cornwall of the 1300s.
- Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi – An eye-opening look at Islam and an inspiring tale of finding the peace in Jesus.
- The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë – A beautifully written classic, with engaging characters, that cleverly explores the societal troubles, strifes and wrongs of the time.
- God’s Smuggler by Brother Andrew – An inspiring and thrilling tale of one man’s truly awesome faith and mission, which also made for a wonderful discussion point at my book club meeting.
- Super Food Family Classics by Jamie Oliver – A collection of great new and traditional recipes for all the family with a super food twist.
- Katherine of Aragon, The True Queen by Alison Weir – A powerful tale of a courageous woman, that completely immersed me into tumultuous Tudor England.
- The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory – Another brilliantly written and researched piece of historical fiction, which, while it lacked the romance and magic I loved from The White Queen, it did grip me from beginning to end!
- The Hairy Dieters (5) Go Veggie by Si King & Dave Myers – A great collection of vegetarian recipes. I look forward to trying them.
- Queen of Hearts, Volume 3: War of the Cards by Colleen Oakes – A fitting and very satisfying ending to this clever and refreshing re-imagining of Wonderland.
- A Monstrous Regiment of Women by Laurie R. King – Another nostalgic and thrilling mystery. I look forward to reading more from this series.
