Happy 2018 friends! I fiercely hope that the coming year is much better than the last. The time has come to recap my reading from the past year. I have been so thrilled to discover that you all have enjoyed these posts in the past and that you look forward to them so much! As we are all aware, this year was fairly disastrous on many fronts. I found myself so emotionally exhausted by absorbing and processing the daily news that I vacillated in my reading from wanting to become more informed about issues related to current events to yearning for a total escape.
Below is my reading list from the year, along with very brief summaries and my thoughts on whether they were worth reading or not so much. (A few of my reviews were copied from my holiday gift guide, because I said what I wanted to say and didn’t feel the need to add anything.)
