I'm cheating a little bit, because Top Ten Tuesday used this topic ages ago. But I already wrote about this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (My 2018 Reading Goals) and I haven't written about books that I really, truly love in a while, so here we are!
“I simply didn't know how to make things better. I could not solve the puzzle of me.” ― Gail Honeyman, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
So last year in May, I discovered a group on Goodreads called Around the Year in 52 Books. This group's goal is to read 52 books in a year, and each book meets a certain challenge. I wrote about my struggles meeting this goal in 2017, but 2018 is a new year!

“People were outraged. They were glued to their televisions, to their web pages, to their Facebook feeds. They vocally expressed sorrow, horror, fury, pain. They cried for change. They raised money. They demanded action. And then they went back to their lives until the next one happened again.” ― Karin Slaughter, The Good Daughter
