Someday I will have a place among the books of the year. Imagine that. It’s every author’s goal, right?

To get you started here are Elle’s 21 Best Books of 2018 Seven of these are short story or essay collections.

If those aren’t enough for you, here are Huffington Post’s 60 Books to Read in 2018 There’s a lot of overlap between the two list, so unless you are voracious, I would stick to Elle. Here’s some that caught my eye.

temp    Roxane Gay is my new favorite author. She writes about tough subjects. Her latest, Hunger, is about her battle to lose weight. Highly recommend.

Four generations on, a teenager faces a future in the town that’s gripped her family for years, and searches the past for clues about how to change her fate.

Best Books 2018     If The Shape of Water didn’t have enough fish-man sex for you, come May you’ll have more than you can deal with. Melissa Broder (a.k.a. @sosadtoday)’s protagonist Lucy falls for a gorgeous swimmer on Venice Beach; it just so happens that only part of him is human.
