The final topic of Top Ten is the top ten books we are looking forward to in 2018. I actually don't have a big list so far, however I have managed to pick ten books I'm looking forward to in 2018!

I am so excited for this companion to the All Souls World by Deborah Harkness. This is my favourite series of all time and I just can't wait for it. Also the TV show of the books premieres next fall and the excitement is real!

2) The Wright Secret by KA Linde (January 2018)

This is the fourth book in a companion series and I am looking forward to Morgans story. 

Yessss!! I have read all 9 of Jodi's books but the This Man trilogy is by far my favourite and I am so excited for this book. We all thought it was over but we where wrong. I am nervous, excited, scared and just so happy to get this book in my hands.

I read and really enjoyed my first Mia Sherdian book this year and I am looking forward to reading more books from her, heist More Than Words made my list.

Again I read and enjoyed a YA book by Holly this year and I am even more excited to check out her debut adult novel next summer.

Katy's books always made me laugh out loud and I am looking forward to her next book next month.

This just sounds so fun and quirky I need it in my life!

This is the second book in the Rogue Security series and I really enjoyed the first book earlier in the year and I am excited for the next book.

Two books that don't have covers that I am excited for is another book from Jodi Ellen Malpas and the next book in the Boston Underworld series by A. Zavarelli . The controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas releases May 2018 and Thief, book five in the Boston Underworld series releases February 2018.

Best Book Boyfriends of 2017

Top 10 of 2017

Top 10 of 2017 is hosted by Rachel of Fiktshun

Today's topic on Top of Ten of 2017 is Best Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends. Some of these books may be duplicated from my Best Books Of 2017 which you can see here and my Best Adult Books Of 2017 here. So let's see who made the list in no particular order.

2) Damien from Branna by LA Casey

Who is your top book boyfriend of 2017?

Best Adult Books of 2017

Today's topic is Best ... of 2017. Where we can fill in the blank with our own topic. I have chosen to pick my Top Ten Best Adult Reads of the year. This year I read mostly adult books and I loved so many of them, most of them being contemporary romance books. If I put the book on my best of 2017 list it won't be on here. You can check out my top ten best of 2017 reads here So without further ado here is my top ten best adult books of 2017 in no particular order.

The Way You Bite is an sexy new adult urban fantasy romance that I really enjoyed. It has vampires and werewolves, a sexy romance, great side characters and a good storyline.

The Wright Mistake is the third book in a companion series by KA Linde. I read all three books in the series this year and enjoyed them all but in particular The Wright Mistake. I was really looking forward to Austin Wrights story and I wasn't disappointed. This story was fun and entertaining but also serious which was a good combination. KA Linde easily melded the themes of addiction, romance, love, sacrifice and redemption into two characters story that I really liked. I highly recommend this whole series.

3) Review: Risky Redemption by Marissa Garner

Risky Redemption is an adult romantic thriller that really surprised me. The story and characters really had me intrigued and the story keep me on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed the thriller aspect and I can't wait for more in this series. 

4) Review: A Pinch Of Salt by Bethany Lopez

A Pinch Of Salt is the first book in the Three Sisters Catering series and it was just the cutest story. I loved the relationship between the main love interests. The story was simple and had just a little complication but it just suited the characters and the feel of the story. I enjoyed meeting Millie's sisters and am looking forward to their stories in the next books.

5) Review: All Or Nothing At All by Jennifer Probst

All or Nothing At All is the final book in the Billionaire brothers companion trilogy and it was my favourite of the trilogy. I enjoyed the story, I liked the characters and I just loved Jennifer's writing.

6) Review: The Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas

I have read and loved all Jodi's books. The Forbidden is Jodi's latest novel and I really liked it. I really connected with the characters and really enjoyed the forbidden concept of the story. I highly recommend The Forbidden and all Jodi's books. 

Perilous Trust is the first in the Off The Grid series. It was an action packed romantic suspense story that from page one you where bang into the action. I really liked the characters, the story and the writing and can't wait for more in the series.

Lost and found sisters is the first book in the Wildstone series and was a great summer adult contemporary. It was sweet summer story about sisters, letting go and finding yourself in a fun quirky town.

Another JEM book has made the list. The Protector was Jodi's 2016 release and at the time for some werid reason I couldn't get into it. However I gave it another go this year and really, really liked it. It had a streamy romance and twists and turns that kept me hooked!

The foxe and the hound is a quick fun rom com that I recommend you check out.
