Best Books of 2018


Here is my much agonized over list of the best historical novels of 2018. Some of the books were not published in 2018, but that is when I read them. My criteria for making the list:

*I read it obsessively.

*I can’t stop thinking about it.

*I can’t stop recommending it.

Whittling down my choices is always a challenge. I only feature the best of the best on the blog, so these are the best of the best of the best. Also, as always, I do an enormous amount of research reading, so I did not get to as many books for pleasure as I would have liked.

Without further ado, and in no particular order (my full reviews are linked to each title):

  1. I WAS ANASTASIA, by Ariel Lawhon
  2. WHERE THE WILD CHERRIES GROW, by Laura Madeleine
  4. LAST CHRISTMAS IN PARIS, by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb
  5. FROM SAND AND ASH, by Amy Harmon

What were your favorites of 2018?
