2018 in Review | The Best Books of 2018

2018 has been an absolutely incredible year here at Red Rocket Panda. Although I technically set up my blog in April 2017, I didn’t start properly blogging until January 2018 and I cannot believe how much this blog has grown – I’ve made some fantastic friends, read a tonne of brilliant books, and enjoyed bringing you all content throughout the year.

One of the things that surprised me the most is that I managed to not only smash my original reading goal of reading 50 books this year, but I also smashed my second goal of 75. As of today, I have read 81 books which is 55 books more than last year. I wanted to share with you all some of my favourite books as well as new-to-me authors that I’ve read and discovered this year!

Book tag | 2018 Mid-Year Freak Out

Book tag | 2018 Mid-Year Freak Out

This tag has come along at the perfect time as I had been planning to do a mid-year post about all the fantastic books that I’ve been reading this year anyway. As I love tags I can compile it all within this one post! Thanks to ReadLikeWildfire and Earl Grey Books for creating the tag! (Addition: this was much harder than I thought it was going to be! Too many good books in one year)

Wrap Up | April: Autism Awareness Month

Wrap Up | April: Autism Awareness Month

Every month I start up with such blogging optimism and planning but it never seems to quite work out how I wanted it to go! I did get 9 books read but 4 of them were graphic novels and only 1 of them was themed around Autism Awareness Month which I didn’t get to review in time before the end of the month. I’ve not been doing too great with actually reviewing things on time so this is definitely something I want to work on next month. Over the next month, I am also hoping to continue my blog redesign so it should be a busy next month ❤

I do have two really exciting pieces of news for you all though, which you can catch later on in this post! ;D

April TBR | Autism Awareness Month & My Birthday!!

April is the best month of all because it’s my birthday and it’s right in the middle of the month so I always try to get away with not doing things “because it’s my birthday”. I’ve had a few people ask me about buying me gifts for my birthday – if you would like to buy me anything then you can check out my amazon wishlist! My birthday is April 15th 🙂 That’s right – I am the most irritating combination of a Gryffindor AND being an Aries.

April is also awesome because its Autism Awareness Month! Sadly, I don’t usually see as many people talking about Autism Awareness Month as they do about other awareness months so I want to try to do some Autism themed posts to celebrate the month!
