What We've Read So Far in 2018

*Please only add books that you HAVE read in 2018*
For the books you've read in 2017, and prior to that, visit the 2017 list and links back.

Just keep voting for books as you read them. Which book will we read the most this year? And for all you lucky people who read more than 100 books in a year, this will become your 100 favourite reads of 2018 list as you delete your least faves when you go past 100.

FYI this is the 9th year I've put this list together. Last year’s list generated almost 7,000 books with 1,000 voters. The top 5 books were #1 The Land: Founding, #2 Vicious, #3 Shameless, #4 Provocative and at #5 Defy. Cheers, and happy reading!

Buggy Happy 2018 everybody. Hope for a wonderful year.
Here is the link back to the 2017 list

Tammy Happy New Year... Hope 2018 is full of good reading


message 3: by Marina (new)

Marina Thanks, Buggy! :) Happy New Year!


message 4: by Megan (new)

Megan Hey Buggy, can there be a "spamming" provision where when it's clear that a book is being spammed to the list, it can be removed? The top five last year were all spam!

Thank you for doing this again, and happy new year!


message 5: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Thanks for this list Buggy, I will enjoy adding my 2018 reads to it.


message 6: by Rana (new)

Rana Thanks again for the list and I agree with Megan. I'd love to see a spamming stipulation, too. It kind of took some of the fun out of it last year, so I'm hoping for more honest votes this year.

Once again, though, thank you for putting this together. Can't wait to see what other people are reading!

Hey Megan . I agree with you 100 percent and honestly was unsure of the validity of the top 5 reads last year. The problem is I'm unsure of how to prove that books are spam. If you have an answer lets figure this out


message 9: by Megan (new)

Megan I think it would be pretty obvious if the book gets 100+ votes in a couple of days, and when (most of) those voters haven't voted for a single other book on the list. The Aleron Kong book from last year is a prime example of that. The more zealous of us can check the read date for some of them - a lot of people mark books as read in the previous year or not read at all. They get brazen!

If we can make a pretty convincing argument based on that info, I think it would be totally fine to remove a book. Anyone else have ideas?

And all of the people who rated it (if you mean the book that is now number ten) have no friends so possibly sock puppets. Perhaps criteria for determining and deleting spam could be a consensus of some kind?

Well, my blessing you've got, as I hate spammers. I don't know how others feel about this though.

Gah!!!!!!!!!! I hate the spammy votes. I agree that waiting for the list creator's permission is appropriate, but is there an allowance for if the creator doesn't respond after a certain amount of time? This is why I'd love to see a spam caveat in the description.

It definitely looks like spam to me, too. 231 ratings total and 30 of them are here? Seems suspect, especially since so many of the voters are on accounts that were just opened and the other lists that they voted on all relate to this book...


message 34: by Loreley (new)

Loreley found another one - Deadly Pretty Strangers


message 35: by Rana (new)

Yep, that's the one we were talking about back in February. Luckily it got kicked down below top 10, but I'd still like to see that one gone.

You were right, LOL. NICU II and Victoria's Incestuous Romance is already back on the list (at #25), along with that author's other books.

Loreley Almost all of the voters joined in June 2018 :)) and the ones that didn't, haven't added the book as read in 2018.
