Every day from now through the end of the year, we’ll be sharing our reviewers’ favorite reads of 2018. A different genre will be featured every day! We’ll share why these books were some of our favorites and what made them so special. We hope you’ll share yours in the comments, too!
Today, let’s chat about our favorite women’s fiction novels (that may or may not overlap into other categories… but what list is perfect, right? LOL) of this year. What do you think?
I love one woman’s journey for single life in a coastal town to adventure on the high seas as she seeks her pirate queen ancestor. Who wouldn’t want to ditch the humdrum life and explore?
Even now I can still remember the vivid scenes and pictures of Alaska she has painted.
Women’s Fiction [St. Martin’s Press, On Sale: February 6, 2018, Hardcover / e-Book, ISBN: 9780312577230 / eISBN: 9781250165619]
This is a 2018 paperback release of a 2017 novel, and I immediately loved and hated the title character. She’s so specific and certainly has her reasons, and she’s one of those characters who will be remembered for years to come. I loved watching her figure out how to navigate life, which she had essentially been living on auto-pilot. A great book club book, and one I won’t soon forget.
The all too realistic scenario of a mall shooting is horrifying and Nora Roberts makes us feel the fear. More importantly, she shows us the healing afterward as well. Stunning!
Just reminiscing about this book makes so many feelings come to the surface. In BEFORE I LET YOU GO Kelly Rimmer makes you stop and think hard about the fact that she has hammered in a message here. One you won’t forget and perhaps leave you with something to chew on. Amazing and enlightening and entertaining and Kelly Rimmer at her best.
Women’s Fiction [Graydon House, On Sale: April 3, 2018, Trade Size / e-Book, ISBN: 9781525820847 / ]
If I had to pick between Nathan and Teddy Roosevelt, the adorable dog, I would have to think twice. Sweet and loving book.
Women’s Fiction Contemporary [William Morrow, On Sale: October 10, 2017, Paperback / e-Book, ISBN: 9780062563781 / ]
This book took me by surprise. I had never read a book by the author before. However, this story about a mother’s love for her child and what she would do for her is heartbreaking.
