A screen capture of my ‘Books Read 2018‘ Pinterest board.

Late, but better than never.

I read thirty-five books in 2018.

The Ones I Really Loved and Will Probably Re-read:

Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami

The Nakano Thrift Store by Hiromi Kawakami

Manazuru by Hiromi Kawakami

Provenance by Ann Leckie

The Magicians of Madh by Aditi Krishnakumar

Bird Cloud by Annie Proulx

Murder While You Work by Susan Scarlett (Noel Streatfeild)

The Tale of the Bidadari by Stephani Soejono

Enormous Changes at the Last Minute by Grace Paley

The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty

Reflections in a Golden Eye by Carson McCullers

Under the Pendulum Sun by Jeannette Ng

Least satisfying/ most disappointing books (they didn’t meet my expectations):

Holy Men, Holy Women by Dina Zaman

Number One Chinese Restaurant by Lillian Li

The Girl with the Ghost Eyes by M. H. Boronson

The Three Sisters of Sze by Tan Kok Seng

The Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

If I could re-read just one of the books I read last year it’d have to be … The Nakano Thrift Store by Hiromi Kawakami.
