*************My top 20 books of 2018 **************

Here are my top 20 books. They are in the order I read them. They have all been awarded  my special 5** rating. To earn that they have to have several things- a good plot, likeable characters, a good ending and that special something. It could be an emotional pull, it could be a very cleverly thought out plot. That "Je ne sais quio"

1. Fifty Years of Fear- Ross Greenwood - Crime A stunning read and a title that resonated with me.


2. Three things about Elsie- Joanna Cannon. One of those special reads you never forget.


3. The Tattooist of Auschwitz- Heather Morris . A very memorable read and one I will never forget
