With just a handful of hours left in 2017, I’ve logged my last book of the year on GoodReads (#148) and have my official “best of the month” roundup for the year. (Best of the month = best book that I read that month, regardless of publication date.) If you are looking for something to kick off your 2018 reading list, this is a great place to start! (Click on the title to go to In Search of the End of the Sidewalk’s review of each pick.)
January- The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston
February- This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel
March- Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders

August– Gather the Daughters by Jennie Melamed
September- My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent
October-Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks

I LOVED 4321!
Me too! The length can be intimidating, but the writing is amazing. I love that we see the various paths of one person’s life- both good and bad.
My 2017 pick was: Reading with Patrick: A Teacher, a Student, and a Life-Changing Friendship by Michelle Kuo. I am embarrassed to say not one of the 50 I read this year is on your list, but that just means I have 11 more recommendations to get to… Pachinko has been on my shelf since early last year, but I keep placing something on top of it. I have it to read this year most definitely.
This was on my to-read list, but somewhere got lost in the pile. Maybe I should dig it back out!
Pachinko was amazing. I will definitely be lending/recommending it to people for months to come.
