Fictionophile’s Top Reads of 2018

As ever, I have a terribly difficult time compiling my ‘best of‘ post. Mostly because I read so many spectacular books that I’d hate to forget a true favourite of the year. In 2018 I read 103 books, not all of which were published in 2018.

    Love your choices!! I have my eyes on the Tin Man and The Chalk Man. One, because of the reviews, two because of the covers 😁

    Some really good choices here. Some I have read, many I have not. I have The Lido and From The Cradle on my kindle app already, so will have to give them a go. Have a Happy New Year Lynne.
