The Best Books I Read In 2018

January 25, 2019

I got inspired by my bestie’s recent post sharing her favorite books of 2018. So, I thought it would be fun to hop on here, and share my favorite books from last year. I’m not sharing any affiliate links, just put these on hold at your local library or get a free 30 day trial of audible.

Hands down, one of my favorite series I read last year was the Crazy Rich Asians series. I loved it so much!


Becoming by Michelle Obama– This was one of the most influential books I read in 2018. I devoured it, and gleamed so much wisdom from Michelle Obama’s life. She is such a strong women with incredible wisdom as a working mother, wife, activist, and friend. I truly loved every second of this book.

All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin- This was different than her usual books, but the message was profound. As always, her writing was flawless even as she tackled a heavy subject.

No One Ever Asked by Katie Ganshert– This book was eloquently written and I don’t want to give too much away, but the themes were important.

A Simplified Life by Emily Ley– This was the first book I read as I launched into my personal journey for simplified living with efficient systems for our family.

Still Me by Jojo Moyes– I couldn’t let this book come out and NOT read it. I’ve loyally followed this series, and I still love it.

The Lifegiving Table by Sally Clarkson– I actually really enjoyed this book, I read a lot of parenting/family books. I love surrounding myself with mentors, even if I’ve never met them IRL. Sally is so this for me, I loved reading through her insider tips for prioritizing meal times.

What books did you read last year that you loved!? What are you hoping to read this year?
