My Favorite 18+ Books of 2018

January is the perfect time to reflect on what we read last year and to compile a list of our favorite books. Below are the titles that made a big impression on me in 2018. As in years past, there are  memoirs filled with resilience, abuse, horror as well as humor and forgiveness, historical fiction, thrillers with unreliable narrators and/or surprising conclusions, books that pulled my heartstrings or were filled with snappy repartee, and first time novelists. There are books of essays and other titles set in a variety of locations including England, Morocco, Italy, Pre-Civil War Virginia, and France. There was humor, comfort, deceit, romance, inequality and heartbreaking situations among the pages of these 18+ books and I hope you will find a few that will stimulate, entertain and enlighten you as well be a focal point for conversation with your friends and book clubs. Enjoy!
