It really doesn’t feel like I read very much this past year, but thankfully, Goodreads helps me keep track! Somehow I managed to read 102 books, so I thought I’d share my favorites from 2018.
Out of everything I read in 2018, these books are the ones that made me laugh, cry, or think, “Everyone should read this book, everyone!” (the first three books) or, some of these simply took me out of my head for a little while and provided me with complete and total distraction (audiobooks: War Horse, Pet Sematary, and Peter Pan – the narration of these books were absolutely flipping fantastic).
- The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey
- The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben
- An American Sickness by Elisabeth Rosenthal
- Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
- Snape: A Definitive Reading by Lorrie Kim
- How to Walk Away by Katherine Center

- War Horse by Michael Morpurgo – Audiobook narrated by John Keating

- I, Robot by Isaac Asimov – Audiobook narrated by Scott Brick
In 2017 read 142 books and shared my favorite reads from the year on Facebook rather than create a blog post, but I mentioned some really fantastic must-read books – so be sure to check out that list too if you’re looking for something to read!
