My Favourite Books Of 2018...

Hey ForeverBookers, 
How are you all? Sorry that I haven’t posted in over a month 😐 (apart from earlier today), I’ve been trying to read THUG, and failing, but I’ve now succeeded 😄. Also December is a busy month for me. Anyway, I’m back now. According to Goodreads, I’ve read 66 books in the past year, which was my reading goal! 
If you’ve been here for a while, you all know my favourite series will forever be the All Souls series by Deborah Harkness so I’m not including that on this list.

1) The Stonewylde series by Kit Berry (books 1-4) - This was a reread from when I was a young teenager. I LOVED rereading these books!!!

I’m not sure I ever finished it as a teenager... http://foreverbooks18.blogspot.com/2018/05/magus-of-stonewylde-stonewylde-book-1.html?m=1 - Magus Of Stonewylde review (Book 1)
2) ACOWAR and ACOFAS by Sarah J Maas - I’m including them both as one because…

NOTE: It’s come to my attention that some people might think this review of “The Hate You Give” is slightly in favour of white people. I had absolutely no idea about the torment that people of colour go through in America or indeed anywhere else in the world. Where I live it’s mainly a white population. The inner cities have some POC rep, where I’ve never been for more than a shopping trip, but apart from that it’s mainly white. Although I’m not going to edit this review now when I reread THUG, I will keep this in mind and might edit some aspects. I’m sorry if any aspect of this review caused/causes anyone to feel negative. That really wasn’t/isn’t my intention. 
I’ve just finished “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas. It wasn’t what I thought it would be, unfortunately. It was far too political for me to enjoy. It’…
