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!

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 Rainbow Recommendations – 

Yesterday I posted up part 1 of this week’s Top 10 Tuesday’s prompt, Beautiful Blue Books, but as I mentioned I had so many ideas for the prompt (none to do with my favourite colour…) that I had to split the posts into 2. Today’s post will focus on my Rainbow Recommendations as I have so many lovely book covers to share with you all that I just couldn’t help myself ❤

Book Tag | The Feminist Book Tag

Book Tag | The Feminist Book Tag

I am super pleased that Aurora tagged me in this brilliant tag because firstly, it’s amazing and secondly I wasn’t able to post anything for #IWD yesterday so this will have to suffice as my little contribution! I usually always focus on the same books so for this I’m going to try to bring you something a little different this time with my answers!

Wrap Up | February 2018

Wrap Up | February 2018

I clearly got a little bit too arrogant with my amazing reading progress in January and completely dived this month. In contrast with the 10 books last month, I only finished reading 6 books and DNF’d 2! February over in the UK was LGBT History Month and although I had lots of optimistic TBR goals I barely read any LGBT History Books or attended any events as we had a few unexpected life events happen. Where did the month go?!
