#LibFaves18: My Favorite Books Published This Year

#LibFaves18 is a 10-day countdown where library workers all over the country Tweet their favorite books published in 2018 using the hashtag #LibFaves18. Afterwards, the entire 10 days of library worker recommendations are compiled into an accessible spreadsheet where every single title that is mentioned (even if it’s only once) will be available for all to see, use for collection development, and to suggest to patrons (click on the year to see the results for previous years: 2017, 2016, and 2015).

Without further ado, here are my 10 choices for #LibFaves18 (in no particular order):
