At the end of December, I wrote a post about the 8 books I was most excited about in 2018. I have managed to make my way through half of the books on that list, so I thought I’d do a little update on whether or not they lived up to my expectations.
By The Book- This was the first book on this list that I read. I would say that it almost met my expectations. It wasn’t bad, but looking back, I feel like I wanted a little bit more from it. It didn’t end up being a largely memorable book for me. It was definitely enjoyable, and it wasn’t a bad book by any means. Just with having had high expectations, it wasn’t as good as I wanted.
The Queen of Hearts- This for sure exceeded my expectations! This is one of my favorite books that I’ve read so far this year. It was different and a page turner and I would highly recommend checking it out.
The Wedding Date- This was the next one on my list, and I would say it met my expectations. Even though this was a highly anticipated novel, I didn’t have extremely high expectations for it. I expected it to be a cute modern romance novel, and that’s exactly what it was. It was an enjoyable read for sure.
The Way You Make Me Feel- Again, I would say this one met my expectations. I think this was my second most anticipated book of 2018 and that gave it some pretty high expectations to meet, so I think that is still high praise for this book. I had read one of Goo’s other novels in February and enjoyed it immensely, so I think I was also comparing it to that one. Either way, it was a wonderful book.
All in all, the books I was looking forward to have been very solid. I have enjoyed each and every one of these books and have yet to be disappointed by any of them. Of the 4 remaining books I was looking forward to, 3 of them are highly anticipated. The Wedding Date is the number 1 book I am looking forward to and I cannot wait to read it.
Have you had books you read any books you were looking forward to? Have you read any of the books that were on my list?
