Here is my list of my favorite books of 2018, containing titles released and read in that calendar year. Please note that a title's placement within a category is not an indication of rank of any sort. Usually, titles are listed in the order in which they were read. Click on a title to read my review.
Blood of the Four by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon (fantasy)
Half-Hazard by Kristen Tracy (poetry)
A Heart in a Body in the World by Deb Caletti (YA fiction)
Sadie by Courtney Summers (YA fiction)
Also of note:
I loved The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur, but it was published in 2017, so I couldn't include it in the list above! If you want to read some of my favorite Rupi Kaur poems, I shared many of them during Poetry Friday in July and August.
I listened faithfully to The Girls podcast, based on Sadie by Courtney Summers.
I enjoyed the Speak graphic novel by Laurie Halse Anderson, illustrated by Emily Carroll.
I re-read Ararat by Christopher Golden in anticipation of the forthcoming companion story, The Pandora Room, which comes out in April.
I had fun discussing the similarities and differences between the Runaways comics, novel, and television series with folks that love Marvel.
I was encouraged by the motivational non-fiction book What If You're Doing It Right? by Robin Brande.
