I've nearly finished the final book in my 2018 Goodreads reading challenge. 98 Books! I am so going to be setting that number lower for next year. I almost did not make it, and relied a lot on Audiobooks, I must say. Yeah, I cheated.
So I'm rounding up the year with some of my favourite reads for this year. Not all of these titles were actually released this year, as I have been wading into my Kindle backlog and I have lots of older books on my shelves. So without further ado here are some of my favourites divided by genre.
From Ancient Rome to Edwardian Britain, there have been so many great historical novels and novellas I have read this year.
Ancient Rome: This novel is a few years old now, but well worth the read. I'm working through my Kindle backlist as this was one of the first titles of it.
Its about a young British Boy who is kidnapped following a rebellion in Britannia, and becomes a slave to a Roman Centurion.
Running away from his master, he meets a Jewish exile, and converts to Christianity, and from thereon follows a story about the growth of the Church and the challenges faced by Christians in First Century Rome.
I don't read many novels set in this period, but its starting to grow on me, alongside Biblical Fiction.
