Great books abound in year-end reading list

Last year in my list of favorite books read in 2017 I had to scrape to come up with just a handful.  This year’s list is markedly different; there are so many books I read and liked in 2018 that I can’t include them all and will have to shorten what I write about them.

Last year I remarked that while my fiction reading tends to run to thrillers, all of them I had read fell flat.  Not so this year.  

“Our House” by Louise Candlish may be at the top. A woman returns home to find people moving into her house, sold to them by her estranged husband.  The beauty of the book is finding out how he was maneuvered into doing that, to his own horror.
