Shane's Favorite 5 Reads in 2018

Staff Pick Badge
An American Marriage (Oprah's Book Club): A Novel Cover Image
$26.95
ISBN: 9781616208776
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Algonquin Books - February 6th, 2018

This will probably be my favorite book of the year (saying that in February is a bit of a risk). It is so perfectly timed where I neither needed the book to speed up or slow down. I took pleasure in every single minute of reading. The characters and the story is heartbreaking and beautiful. This is truly a book that Oprah and I will be telling you to read. - Shane's 5 Favorite Reads in 2018


Staff Pick Badge
The Great Believers Cover Image
$27.00
ISBN: 9780735223523
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Viking - June 19th, 2018

The Great Believers will be a very strong contender for my favorite book of the year. The two storylines are equal in strength. This is a roller coaster of emotion. I had to stop reading because I could not read through my tears. I cannot recommend a book more that will break your heart. - Shane's 5 Favorite Reads in 2018

Under a Dark Sky: A Novel Cover Image
$15.99
ISBN: 9780062560308
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: William Morrow Paperbacks - August 7th, 2018

I suspected every single character possible of being the killer throughout the course of the book. Everyone has their reasons and their reason to be the suspect. I thought it was brilliant. The characters are so wonderful and some of them are dastardly. The setting is perfect. I did not know that a dark sky park existed, but I want to go to one so bad! If you have a rational or irrational fear, this book will make you feel so comfortable with it (unless you are afraid of murder or the dark). Definitely a must read for your mystery pleasure. - Shane's 5 Favorite Reads in 2018

Published: Riverhead Books - September 18th, 2018

I am struck by the beauty of this book. This book will make your heart swell and break into pieces. Be careful where you read this. Or better yet don't be embarrassed by crying. Let it out. Hug someone. Let's change the world! - Shane's 5 Favorite Reads in 2018


Staff Pick Badge
Heavy: An American Memoir Cover Image
$26.00
ISBN: 9781501125652
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Scribner - October 16th, 2018

I feel more woke and shook than I have before. Kiese Laymon has an ability with words that are both striking and lyrical. This memoir will leave you with so many feelings. I don't know if I have ever cried when finishing a memoir both out of being so moved and also not wanting it to end. Relish it. Let it change you. - Shane's 5 Favorite Reads in 2018
