NPR’s Book Concierge 2018 is up! I love this list and look forward to it each year! I don’t agree with each selection and do find some that make me snort with wonder at their inclusion even, but I love it. It is a real reader’s look at the years books–not only the over-hyped wonder books of the year. (And, in the spirit of honesty, I dearly hope one of mine becomes one of those some year! I need the money for retirement!)

I have read several, had others on my To Read list already and added a few more to the list today after reading thru it all. Here are the links to my reviews. Hint: One of these is a front-runner for my best book of 2018. (Note: these reviews are in no special order of ranking. Click the book’s linked title to see my review).

Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover  (I did not finish this one 100% and did not review it but for other reasons–nothing to do with disliking it in any way).

Have you read any of the books in this year’s Conceirge list? Leave me a comment.

  1. The collage is awesome! I’ve read Educated (really liked) and Achtung Baby (meh) from the list. Due to how PC so many books are becoming, I’ve almost decided to focus my reading on book 10 yrs old or so to avoid my head exploding 🙂 Still, interesting to see what they view as worthy of suggestion.
