Well, the new year has passed and I still haven’t found the time to post my FAVE READS for last year! I apologize – working full-time does not impact my reading time, but it does impact my blogging time!

So here – in no particular order beyond the fact that I’m reviewing my blog Jan to Dec to find them – are 16 novels, 2 audiobooks, and a podcast: my favorite reads/listens from last year:

Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout

The Girls in the Picture by Melanie Benjamin

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman (wins the “I almost didn’t read it because I thought I’d hate it but instead I loved it” award)

West Cork – an audible podcast (still haunts me – true crime)

The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg

I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhorn

Wildwood by Elinor Florence

The Secret Life of Mrs. London by Rebecca Rosenberg

Us against You by Frederic Backman (sequel to Beartown by this exquisite writer)

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas (having my 8th graders read it next year)

Flavia de Luce mysteries by Alan Bradley (they are all brilliant!)

As Bright as Heaven by Susan Meissner (just read her latest, too, and loved it!)

Susan Elia MacNeal’s Maggie Hope stories (all are good – WWII mysteries)

The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton

Christmas at the Lakeside Resort by Susan Schild

The Tatooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris (controversial, I know)

The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas (always a great YA read from her)

And here are TWO GREAT AUDIOBOOKS I listened to this year: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate and Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.

 

Please know that I read MANY wonderful books and this list is highly subjective and specific to me and what I like to read (I read to escape, to relax, to unwind).
