My Favorite Books of 2018

I love to read. I just don’t get enough time to read as much as I’d like.  My goal in 2018 was to read one book a month.  I think I did ok.  Here’s the list of my favorite reads of the year, by category.  I use Goodreads to track my reading and yes, I leave reviews from time to time to remind myself of why I loved a book and share my thoughts with others.


These are the books I read and loved this year.  Oh, and if I am not loving a book by the second or third chapter, I simply set it aside and move on to a new one.  No need to keep reading if I’ve lost interest early on or don’t feel connected to any of the characters.
