    Favorite Books of 2018! #amonthoffaves

    Welcome to the final day of 2018’s #amonthoffaves! Today we’re looking over our favorite books of the year. While I only read 60 books in 2018, there were some big winners that will stick with me for a long, long time. Super Favoritest Books of the Year Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand is the feminist badassery I’ve been looking for all year long. Three young girls discover they have primordial powers to destroy evil and they will do it their way.
