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!

Too many good books in one year)

Top 10 Tuesday | Series I Need to Finish

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

– Top 10 Series I’m Yet to Finish – 

I’ve been struggling quite a bit with TTT recently as I just haven’t been feeling the chosen topics for each week but I really love posting something each week. So this week I’ve decided to just choose my own topic! At the beginning of the year, I made a little BuJo spread of all the series I needed to finish, but inevitably rather than finish any series I have started even more series… So now my life is drowning in a sea of unfinished series. Also after finishing writing this I’m preettyyyyy sure I’ve actually already done this topic but… it’s always relevant so here we go again!
