I read 127 Books in 2018. Here are the 18 I recommend.

This was an absolutely fantastic reading year! I read all the time all year long. I read genres I usually don't and I stepped outside of my comfort zone.

Part of the reason for my big number is largely in part of my Book of the Month subscription and my discovery of the joys of listening to audiobooks when in public rather than dealing with the public.

I know you don't have all day, so I am sharing my 18 favorite reads this year using ten words or less for each. Let's get on with it.

My Favorite Books of 2018



Beartown - Friday Night Lights for hockey. Favorite read of the year.



The Chilbury Ladies Choir - Historical fiction novel told through letters with sassy strong women.


An American Marriage - False accusation, jail, marriage whoas. The book and audio = incredible.


The Woman in the Window - Hitchcock throwback thriller set in modern times. Creepy page turner!


The Music Shop - My heart swelled with this music shop love story.


How to Walk Away - An accident + hospital stay + hot Scottish physical therapist


Inspired - Inspired me to read the Bible in hopeful new ways


All We Ever Wanted - "Me too" rich kid and rich parent drama


Whiskey & Ribbons - About a fatally wounded cop, his wife, and his bff


Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win - Female in politics drama with a very abrupt ending


Rush - The Help meets Greek Like


The Wedding Date - Romcom about a couple pretending to date for a wedding


Calypso - The latest work of satire by humorist David Sedaris


The Library Book - Part nonfiction, part true crime about libraries and a fire


The Girl Who Drank the Moon - Outstanding fantasy for middle grades - full of magic


Last Christmas in Paris - Bawled my eyes through this love story told through letters


Almost Everything - Latest by Anne Lamott - almost everything she knows for sure


The Summer Wives - Soapy historical fiction with dynamics of the rich and poor
