My Favorite 2018 Reads

I read quite a few books this year. Science fiction, fantasy, science fact, memoirs, current affairs, history, skill building, and self help are a few of their categories. I learned many things and I was entertained. These six are among my favorite reads in 2018.

  • “The Lost Continent” by Tui T. Sutherland
  • “Every Heart a Doorway” by Seanan McGuire
  • “Tess of the Road” by Rachel Hartman
  • “My Lady Jane” by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows
  • “Space Opera” by Catherynne M. Valente
  • “Educated: A Memoir” by Tara Westover
Book covers for my six favorite books I read in 2018.

Karma

Karma
by Lester D. Crawford

Santa said, “There are two kinds of people: those who are on the naughty list, and those who are not.” He handed me my gift and added, “Both receive the same gift. Karma sorts things out.”

I love my gift. She’s wonderful. And, karma taught me which list I’m on.

It had been a little sneeze, but now I sit in the yard, in the snow, the cute baby dragon curled up in my lap, asleep, innocent and sweet, smoke still rising from her nostrils as I watch my house burn, the flaming Christmas tree still framed in the window.

My 100-word Christmas story for 2018.
