My 5 Favorite Books of 2018

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.

Poor Your Soul

Rating: 5/5 | Reading Poor Your Soul was a beautiful, heartbreaking, moving experience. I found myself almost hypnotized by Mira Pitacin's masterful use of language and perspective.

The Power by Naomi Alderman

Rating: 5/5 | The Power was not a light read; it was not comfortable. It was weighty and important composed of layers and layers just waiting to be peeled back. I went into it without any real expectations, but still, I never could have imagined this novel would turn out to be what it is.
