My 5-star Reviews of 2018

This year was my first full year reviewing books, and I focused on indie dark fantasy. I found some new favorite authors and tried some things I normally wouldn't have. There is so much great work out there. It would be easy to hand out 5-star reviews often. I decided to come up with one specific criteria that sets a book apart enough to earn 5-stars from me: the further I get into a book, the harder it should be to put down.

Here are my 5-star reads for this year, in no particular order. The links go to my reviews on Goodreads. With each of these books, I had trouble putting it down, and have great respect for the author's storytelling expertise.
