When I set out to write this post, I was determined to pick my top 5 books of the year. However, I found it impossible to whittle down the list. This is why I always dread the question, “What’s your favorite book?” I can’t pick one from 2018, never mind of all time!
This year I found myself listening to more audiobooks than in previous years. I find that audiobooks can really bring a book alive (and they make drives and chores go by a lot quicker). I listened The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo a slam poet who narrates her own book making it a truly engrossing experience. You can find most of these titles available on CD or online as a downloadable audiobook!
You can check these titles out at Kirkwood Public Library or online through OverDrive!
I’m looking forward to a slew of new books in 2019! Next year I’m challenging myself to read more classics from the Great American Reads list, nonfiction, and more new “Own Voice” titles.
Which titles were your favorite this year? Leave them in the comments!
