It’s Here! NPR’s Book Concierge for 2018: Here are my reviews

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).

My Reviews


Varina: A Novel by Charles Frazier


That Kind of Mother: A Novel by Rumaan Alam


Female Persuasion: A Novel by Meg Wolitzer


Fascism: A Warning by Madeline Albright  [I have not yet reviewed this book].


Ninety-Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret by Craig Brown


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.
