Hello humans! I have already talked about my top reads of 2018 but it’s been a couple of months since that blog post and with all the reading I did in June this seems like the perfect time to revisit the topic!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is an awesome way to discover new bloggers who like the same kind of books as you do!

I finished the second book in Becky Chambers’ Wayfarers series just last week and wept for basically the entire book. It is wonderful. I am so excited to read the next book.
Another ‘I really ought to read this before the sequel comes out’ moment. I adored this book, the characters, the action, the morals (or lack of). It’s a great exploration of what it means to be a hero or a villain.
This is a lovely story about a girl who wants to be a palaeontologist and while on an internship discovers some of the difficulties of being a woman in a field dominated by men, it’s about finding yourself and self-belief and it’s SO sweet.
The witchy, chick-flick I didn’t know I needed. This is a wonderful example of how to write female friendships and outsiders well.
A fabulous own voices, Moroccan inspired science fiction fantasy crossover novel. I read this and was taken by surprise at how uniquely interesting it is.
A gorgeously complex ending to a trilogy that you definitely have to read to fall in love with. I might need to sit down and read all of these again!
Another surprise. I won this book in a twitter giveaway and was blown away by how delightful it is. A dramatic story in a very accessible setting.
I can see why this won the Hugo Award, I have now read the entire trilogy but this is the best book of the three.
SO GOOD! (But I might have liked A Closed and Common Orbit more).
AMAZING. What a sequel. I may never tire of reading about murder nuns.
Those are my ten most recent 5* reads, I have so many books to read that I anticipate being 5* so I’m sure I’ll have to remake this list soon!
