My 2018 Reading List
My perennial New Year’s resolution is to read one fiction and one non-fiction book per month. I tend to fail, and this year I only averaged 1.33 books per month (which, interestingly, is the same as last year; 2016 was 1.5 per month).
As you can tell from this list, I became a bit obsessed with afrofuturism and am still in awe of the immersive worldbuilding within the genre’s novels I read. I gravitated more towards fiction this year in general, which meant I snuck in fewer non-fiction books than usual (I did read more academic papers this year, but they’re far more arid).
If you’re looking for more science fiction, speculative fiction, or non-fiction recommendations, check out my 2017 and my 2016 reading lists.
