Last month we brought you some of 2017’s biggest reads courtesy of the Goodreads Choice Awards. With the calendar freshly turned to 2018, it’s time to look ahead at the page-turners we’re looking forward to in 2018.
If you’re a bibliophile like us, the end of the calendar year is a wonderful time to be alive. Not only are you guaranteed to receive one or two books from family members over the holidays, but book industry people are busy ranking the best books of the year all over the place.
Goodreads is no exception! We love the Goodreads website for so many reasons, including its easy-to-track book reading challenge, accessible reviews and the vast collection of books you have or want to read.
