Salem’s Lot by Stephen King
This is the first book I read in 2018. Also one of the first to introduce me into the audiobook world. I find I struggle with a long book in terms of actually sitting down and finding the time. I tend to get anxious when I have other things to do. The discovery of the audiobook has fully changed my reading game! I can now do all the things and read a book, it’s a miracle. Anyway, Salem’s Lot, yes. I loved this story. I’m not a huge fan of vampires (I loathed the Twilight series, but enjoyed The Vampire Diaries, and a bit of True Blood) but this, this is a vampire story. This is creepy as all hell and I enjoyed it immensely.
The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed
I so enjoyed The Nowhere Girls. Each young girl in this novel has such a unique personality and co tributes to the cause in a different way. Essentially The Nowhere Girls are started in order to fight back against a suspected rapist who caused another young girl from their community to leave.
The Art of Losing by Lizzy Mason
This book doesn’t come out until next month, but it was hands down one of my favorite reads of 2018. I highly recommend picking it up if you love hard hitting YA contemporaries. This book was just absolutely beautiful, I didn’t want it to end.

Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry
This was Katie Henry’s debut novel, and it was a stunner. I loved the story and all of tge politics and antics that went along with it. I can’t wait for her second book to come out later this year! Check out my full review, here.
Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix
This was great. The entire story is set in a fictional store very much like an IKEA and the book is actually designed to look like a catalouge itself. This was the perfect amount of horror mixed with good humor, and I am for sure going to bed picking up more of Hendrix’ stuff in the future!!
