2018 was an AMAZING year for literature. I mean, seriously amazing. From Educated to Washington Black, The Tattooist of Auschwitz to The Woman in the Window, and everything else in between, 2019 has ginormous shoes to fill. Without further ado, here’s our roundup of our absolute favourite books of the 2018. Get ready, Savvy Readers. This might be a long one.
In retrospect, January was a thriller-heavy month. Interesting…
Okay, yes, I know that Annihilation technically didn’t come out in 2018, but we read the movie tie-in and that edition came out in 2018 and we loved it, so there.
Short stories, thrillers, historical fiction… This month had a little bit of everything!
Was April stacked with great books or what? Jeez.
Just like March, May had a little bit of everything for any type of reader!
HONESTLY?! What a phenomenal month.
Any month that includes books by Caitlin Moran and Beatriz Williams is clearly a great month.
The Accidental Further Adventures of the Hundred-Year-Old Man by Jonas Jonasson
Heartbreaker by Claudia Dey
Perfect Silence by Helen Fields
Washington Black by Esi Edugyan
Well, this is quite the eclectic mix, isn’t it?
When The Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica
The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
A Willing Murder by Jude Deveraux
The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan
September might have something to say about June’s “Best Book Month Ever” title…
The Next Person You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom
Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver
I’ll Be There For You by Kelsey Miller
Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy
Alice Isn’t Dead by Joseph Fink
Family Trust by Kathy Wang
Pages & Co. by Anna James
Remember what I just said about September and June? Might want to redact that one…
Well, at least there was a Matt Haig title in there to even things out!
Okay, technically we’re cheating because these haven’t been released quite yet, but we’ve already read them and absolutely loved them!
Phew. Okay, all done. What did we miss? Did we include something that shouldn’t have been here? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @SavvyReader!
Here’s to hoping 2019 is another amazing year for books!
