Oy, the #bestbooks2018 hashtag is booming and my TBR is exploding! I‘m going to need to just hibernate with books for the winter break. Send food.

My Favorite Books of 2018. Check out my profile for all 10 (+1).

1. There There by Tommy Orange. One day I want to build a city where only people who love this book as much as I do live and it will be a place where there is love and creativity and, finally, justice. I love this book‘s voice, its brilliant structure, its heart. #BestBooks2018

My Favorite Books of 2018.

2. An American Marriage by Tayari Jones. I can‘t remember the last time I got this caught up in the lives of fictional people. These characters were so real to me. I found myself in love with them, mad at them, gossiping about them. It was just so good. #BestBooks2018

My Favorite Books of 2018.

3. Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami. I‘ve read a million Murakami books and before I read this I wondered if I would finally get over his whole thing, but then I read all 704 pages in 48 hours. I love when a book takes over. It was like reading Harry Potter. #BestBooks2018

My Favorite Books of 2018.

4. Tin Man by Sarah Winman. One day I am going to have to investigate why I love books that are this devastatingly sad so much. This is the saddest book I‘ve read since A Little Life and it is just so beautiful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. #BestBooks2018

My Favorite Books of 2018.

5. Washington Black by Esi Edugyan. When I was reading this book, it was all I could think about, reading it was all I wanted to do—I completely fell in love with the main character and loved traveling the world with him. #BestBooks2018

6. The Incendiaries by RO Kwon. If you‘re like me, you will fall in love with the characters in this book and you will have to ask deep, dark questions about what loving them says about you and then you will keep loving them and everything about this book anyway. #BestBooks2018

My Favorite Books of 2018

7. Heart Berries by Terese Marie Mailhot. Every time I sell this to a customer, I feel like I‘ve made the world a better place. Everything about this book is special, its vulnerability, its bravery, the way it defies genre and form. Beautiful. #BestBooks2018

Split Tooth | Tanya Tagaq

My Favorite Books of 2018

8. Split Tooth by Tanya Tagaq. This is that once-in-a-lifetime magic, filled with all my favorite things—poems, Jaime Hernandez art, heartbreakingly beautiful sentences. Fierce and tender, otherworldly in its perception, fully human in its execution. #BestBooks2018

Winter: A Novel | Ali Smith

Pickpick

My Favorite Books of 2018.

9. Winter by Ali Smith. You should write a dystopia in which you create a world where Ali Smith writes a book that isn‘t a masterpiece. That premise is so implausible, but if you pull it off you will win so many awards. But yeah, Winter is another masterpiece. #BestBooks2018
