Fresh Fiction Favorite Wildcard Picks of 2018!

December 28, 2018

Over the last week and for the rest of this week, the Reviewers of Fresh Fiction will be sharing some of our favorite reads in various genres. We hope you’ll take another look at these titles, and maybe share your favorites in the comments. We’ll have a different genre featured each day! Be sure to check the blog to see what we’ve already covered.

Today, on the last day of our “Favorites” posts, we’re featuring some of our favorite “wildcard” picks – books that we felt didn’t fit into one broad category, one that wasn’t specifically called out, or we thought deserved an extra look! So take a look at our last post of favorite books of 2018.

Cheers to more great reads in 2019! Happy New Year!

HIDDEN WOMEN by Rebecca Rissman

Reviewer: Clare
About several African American women who were mathematicians for NASA, something I never knew about, and I enjoyed reading the progress that was made for women and women of colour over the years.

The unsung heroines who landed others on the Moon


THE IMMORTALISTS by Chloe Benjamin

Reviewer: Danielle
Recent history, a little bit of magic (or is it?), science, coincidence, family drama… these are just a few of the things that are tackled in this book, and it was the most unique book I read in 2018, as well as one of the first I read this year. It’s a book that I think about often, and one that I may not recommend a ton, but when I do, it’s emphatically!

A fascinating and enthralling novel!

Who really chooses how you will live your life?

If you knew how long you have to live, would it make a difference?


RAINBIRDS by Clarissa Goenawan

Reviewer: Svetlana
Sometimes books preach revenge, but this one took an unusual path of preaching to simply move on and not waste life.

I love how the author uses different people and approaches to tell the story. Kind of like a vampire version of World War Z. This is THE book vampire fans have been waiting for!
