2018–the year in books

In 2018, I had a slow year of reading–I only managed to finish 52 books (though as Scott pointed out, that’s still one a week for the year). It’s a remarkably small number, especially since as I look back to what I read in January, it seems like those were at least a decade ago, not just a year…

Here are the best of them, in chronological (by reading, not publishing) order:

Every Man a King Huey Long

News of the World Paulette Giles

Salvage the Bones Jesmyn Ward

The Pursuit of Alice Thrift Eleanor Lipman

All the Pieces Matter Jonathan Abrams

The Most Dangerous Man in Detroit Nathan Lichtenstein

Hag-seed Margaret Atwood

Just Mercy Bryan Stephenson

Alabama’s Civil Rights Trail Frye Galliard

When I Was Puerto Rican Esmerelda Santiago

Sing Unburied Sing Jesmyn Ward

If Beale Street Could Talk James Baldwin

Solidarity Divided Bill Fletcher Jr. & Fernando Gasparin
