This is a listing of all my 2018 reviews roughly grouped by type (fiction or non-fiction and picture or chapter book) and then alphabetically. Board books are listed separately. Please keep in mind that this is NOT a recommendation list, I review many books that I either do not like, or do not recommend to others. If you are looking to browse reviews by other characteristics, I have a more comprehensive listing of my commonly used tags broken down by category.
