Best of my 2018 reading
Here is my annual list of books I have most enjoyed this year (excluding adult books which are outside the purview of this blog). As ever, they are books that I have given 5 stars to in Goodreads and are in no particular order because that’s too much like hard work.
Be Prepared by Vera Brosgol (graphic memoir)
The Button War by Avi (historical – review to come)
My Year in the Middle by Lila Quintero Weaver (historical)
The 57 Bus by Dashka Slater (nonfiction)
Dread Nation by Justina Ireland (historical speculative)
Lighter than my Shadow by Katie Green (graphic memoir)
Little Do We Know by Tamara Ireland Stone (realistic)
Lost Soul, Be at Peace by Maggie Thrash (graphic memoir/fantasy)
Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson (realistic)
Picture Us in the Light by Kelly Loy Gilbert (realistic)
A Skinful of Shadows by Frances Hardinge (speculative)
Speak: A Graphic Novel (graphic realistic fiction – review to come)
Thick as Thieves by Megan Whalen Turner (speculative)
And there’s still time to nip out to your local bookstore to score a fab present for the teenager or middle grader in your life!
