My 5 Favorite Books of 2018
In 2016, I read 100 books. That was a ton of fun and a great challenge (that I still brag about TBH). But the pace was a bit fast for me; I didn’t remember everything I’d read as well as I wanted to.
So in 2017, I read 60, which was the perfect pace. This past year, I set a goal of 50 because I knew I was going to have a busy first few months professionally. Well, I ended up reading 55 books. And many of them were truly excellent.
So (in the spirit of fives), here are my top five books from 2018. Two fiction, two memoirs, and one really fun nonfiction. These are the ones that I talk about unprompted, that I tell people about. That made an impression on me and made me think about them long after I’d put them down.
