Genres, time periods, settings… we love them all! SO, what kind of fictional experience are y’all in the mood for?! Not sure? Can’t decide? 2018 swoof reads are here for you! Last year, swoof reads was a week-long celebration so check that out then read on for this year’s condensed version of the swoof files!
While reading a stack of books within the contemporary romance genre two summers ago, I was surprised by the variety of emotions the stories evoked. Amish sweethearts, heart-pounding suspense, romantic comedies, and sappy Hallmark-esque plots are all lumped together within the same category.
Eight lists of four featured books for each categorized by swoof, my experience of the reads! Each of these books has been featured on Faithfully Bookish or Hope By The Book magazine in 2018 so y’all can get the scoop by clicking the covers below for more about these lovely stories!
Outstanding books from debut authors and stories that excel outside of the box…
Cozy, community or family-centered books that feel all warm and fuzzy like home…
Spark that itch to learn more about the historical facts and visit featured locations…
Mystery, suspense, action, these are the stories that make your heart pound and your knuckles white…
These books encourage, inspire, and fill hearts with faith and satisfaction…
Stories that put a big goofy grin on my face (or make me laugh out loud) with that extra wow factor in the entertainment department…
Grab your fans and fainting couches, these are the stories that make my knees weak and my reader heart soar!
Melding and connecting past and present…
These 30+ books should get you started no matter what kind of 2018 swoof reads you’re in the mood for! Tomorrow, I’ll share my most highly anticipated reads for early 2019 and Thursday is dedicated to my personal favorites of 2018!
