Top 10 Books of 2018

Historical fiction, literary fiction, and nonfiction are still the books I enjoy most.

If you liked All the Light We Cannot See (one of my all-time favorites), you will like:

The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure (now another all-time favorite)
and
Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. The author of The Nightingale delivers another compelling story with a strong female protagonist.

Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. A gripping family saga about China/Korea relations in the early 1900s.

Published a long time ago, Pat Conroy’s
The Prince of Tides
and
The Water Is Wide
Having visited the low country of South Carolina made these stories vivid.

Educated by Tara Westover. Any memoir about a woman overcoming odds gets my vote.

Eunice by Eileen McNamara. I met the author at a local library where she signed my copy about this pioneering Kennedy.

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. Quirky and fun with a twist at the end.

Morningstar by Ann Hood. I related to this easy read about classic books that influenced the novelist.
