2018 Reading List by popular Atlanta lifestyle blogger Happily Hughes

Ya’ll I’ve read so many great books lately that I just had to share my 2018 reading list!  I love that ya’ll recommend books to me on stories etc. so please keep doing so.  Here is a roundup of the best books I’ve read. If I’ve missed any new and fantastic reads just let me know below! 

2018 Reading List

  • Sing, Unburied, Sing– This family story follows a mixed family through past and present Mississippi in the most lyrical and haunting way.  I could not put it down! 
  • Red Sparrow– This novel has been turned into a movie starring Jennifer Lawrence- my girl crush.  It’s about Russian spies and CIA masterminds after the cold war.  If you’re into top secret spy stuff, you will love this. It’s also the first in a trilogy set.
  • Babyville– Another Jane Green novel that will make you laugh and cry!  I love her dry British humor.
  • Change of Heart– Jodi Picoult wins at the fiction game again with this heart-wrenching and eye opening tale.  As a mama I really connected with the main character and it made it that much more engrossing. 
  • The Wife Between Us– If you loved Gone Girl, you will LOVE this book.  I read the whole thing in one night!
  • The Woman in the Window– Also along the lines of Gone Girl.  This book twists and turns and keeps you on your toes the whole read through.
  • The Alice Network– One of my favorites of all time.  This book is about women spies during World War 2, a pregnant young woman after the war, and a handsome convict.  They all tie together in a beautiful and spell-binding story.
  • Surprise Me– Sophie Kinsella at her very best.  This book is both hilarious and heartbreaking.

  1. I’m going to try a couple you have listed. With my depression and anxiety the way it is I have to be careful to only read lite fun books. As of late I have been reading Historical Fiction (many true facts.) I attribute them to January being a little better than most years.

  2. Okay so the woman in the window I really enjoyed and the Alice network is on my list. I’ll have to give a second thought to the wife between us too. But sing unburied sing? Pretty sure I gave it one star. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone! Different strokes for different folks 🙂

  3. This is quite a reading list. My attention span prevents me from reading at the moment but I would love to snuggle up with a good book. I do enjoy collecting books and plan to go to our library’s old book sale in a few days!

  4. Some of these sound pretty intense. I have to admit, I just have no time for reading much these days. Hopefully, that will change in future years. I love reading inspirational Novels and biographies.

  5. Wow! I was looking for some new books. I am just going to start at the top and work my way down the list.

  6. Oh my, what a great roundup of books. I love all of them!! I am constantly adding to my reading list!

  7. Oh, love this!! This is a great help as I compile my 2018 reading list. I am constantly adding to my reading list!

  8. Jane Green has always been one of my favorite authors ever since I read Jemima J. I will definitely have to add her new book to my must read list. Her books are just so fun and engaging.
