My Best Book of 2018

Wow, another year has flown by and it's time for me wrap up the year by revealing my favourite book of 2018. 

Unfortunately, I haven't been as active this year as I would have liked, not because I haven't read many great books, but I've just struggled with a busy year and motivation, particularly these last few months with a change of job and city - so whilst I haven't written as many blog posts as I would have liked, it's still way more than my feeble attempts in 2017.

Okay, so without further ado, my favourite book of 2018 is......*drum rolls please* ....

Send Down the Rain By: Charles Martin.

Now you may be thinking that it's weird for a blog called Fantasy Muse to have chosen a non-fantasy book... well..... it is my blog, and you can't expect me to read just fantasy books all year long *shrugs* what can I say? At times I like to broaden my horizon with other genres.

Admittedly, I am quite particular when it comes to romance novels, I avoid as much as possible the cheesy ones (I'm sure you know what I mean) and prefer a more mature and endearing tale, and Send Down the Rain pretty much ticked all of my boxes when it came to the perfect romance novel - it was packed with substance, an intriguing protagonist, plot twists and action (including a Mexican cartel).

Before I finish this post, I'd like to wish my readers (yes, that one person - you!), a fantastic New Year, and I hope that 2019 is filled with new beginnings and achievements.

Finally, I leave the below to ponder over.
