My Year In Books

2018 was a good reading year. I set my Goodreads goal to read 52 books, but I ended up reading more than I anticipated.  I read 20,239 pages across 62 books.

The first book I read in 2018 was The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes. It was a fantastic way to start the year. 

The last book I read was The Christmas Hirelings by Mary Elizabeth Braddon.

I started and finished the year listening to audiobooks. I think 2018 was the year of audio for me. I believe I listened to more audiobooks than ever before.

The longest book I read was Gothic Tales by Arthur Conan Doyle.

The shortest book was Cocky Author in support of #cockygate

It's hard to pick my favorite book of 2018, so I picked my top 5. And these are in no particular order. 

Crazy Rick Asians by Kevin Kwan. 

The Christmas Hirelings by Mary Elizabeth Braddon

Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy

The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey

A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn

What was your favorite book of 2018?


  1. I've wondered about checking out Marilla of Green Gables, and if it does justice to the original character that L.M. Montgomery created. I'm glad to see it made your top 2018 reads!!

    1. It really really does. I'm a huge fan of Anne too, and that was one of my biggest fears.
