My top reads of 2018 and looking back it seems a lifetime ago since I read some of these.
11 reads from a yearly total of 137 rated as 5 STARS on the random, arbitrary Keane Scoreboard.
I don't know if I've gotten more miserly as the year climaxed but my last 5-er was Kevin Wignall's For the Dogs in September. Maybe time for my quarterly happy pill?
If I was to narrow the selections down to some top, top picks on the basis of which of these 11 books I would re-read first if forced to pick say 3...... step forwards - Alan Parks, Preston Lang and Mick Herron
