There was really SO many good books this year, it was super hard to choose. And I managed to shake a bit of a reading slump; I haven’t read this many books in two years! I’m quite proud of myself. I’ve also increased the books by nonwhite authors. Still not as high as I want it to be, but a quarter of my reading is much better than I’ve done in the past.
By the numbers:
Middle Grade Fiction: 42
YA Fiction: 71
Graphic Novels: 30
Adult Fiction: 16
Number of those that were sci-fi/fantasy books, not counting graphic novels: 64
Number of those that were by authors of color: 42
Number of those that were audio books: 10
Number of those that were rereads: 21
Grand Total: 171
My top twelve (because even), in no particular order:
When They Call You a Terrorist
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
The Parker Inheritance
The Penderwicks at Last
The best rereads:
Ones you NEED to read:
Caterpillar Summer (April 2)
Wicked King (January 8)
The Deceivers (February 5)
Bloom (February 12)
A Curse So Dark and Lonely (January 29)
And don’t forget that the Cybils are announcing the shortlists tomorrow! Quite a few of my favorites are on there.
What was your favorite this year?
One thought on “My Best of 2018”
