Top 2018 Books

I read a little over 100 books of all sizes in 2018 — down from over 200 in 2017. Makes sense, though — my day-job focus switched in recent time from coordinating book tours to managing leadership programs. During last year, I tracked my “5-star” books, regardless if the books were published in 2018, so I’m pulling the following list from that list. Also, I’m leaving out any re-reads of Harry Potter books. My top 2018 books are, by category:
