Like last year (and the year before), I'm sharing favorites I read this year (not necessarily published this year!) across the board. I’m tweaking the format a bit this year though to hopefully simplify things. These are books I highly recommend, thoroughly enjoyed, and want everyone else to read, too. And, they are ALL written by WOMEN. (Diversifying who I was reading was a big goal of mine this year and I focused primarily on reading books by women and people of color!) Most of these are ones I'm still thinking about weeks or months later, ones that made a lasting impact on me, but there is surely no way to include EVERY great book I read here!
A quick note: there are affiliate links throughout this post-- they won't cost you any more money at all, but will throw a few cents my way to support my endless book-buying habits! It's much appreciated. :)
In no particular order…
Here are the 12 best books I read in 2018:
