I know I’m a little late, but I really want to share some of my favourite books of 2018. Heaps of cool books came out last year, and I don’t want you to miss them!

I loved SO many more books than the selection below, but these are some of my absolute favourite reads — ones that call to me, begging to be explored again and again.
