My 2018 reading list was filled with really amazing selections and some very long books! Looking forward to 2019.

The list of the books I rated with 5 out of 5 stars on my Goodreads list for 2018.

Cover Title Author My Thoughts
Breakfast of Champions Breakfast of Champions Vonnegut, Kurt Fantastic satire, really loved the way this book was structured.
A Life in Parts A Life in Parts Cranston, Bryan Audio book read by the author, actor. Beautiful insights into his life and his art.
The Gene: An Intimate History The Gene: An Intimate History Mukherjee, Siddhartha Fascinating history of the science behind the basic building blocks of life. Critical for understanding the medical and scientific innovations that are coming (may be here already).
The Count of Monte Cristo The Count of Monte Cristo Dummas, Alexandre The mother of all serial stories.
 The Magic Mountain The Magic Mountain Mann, Thomas There is no reasonable way to explain this Nobel Prize Winning book from the 1920s. But I loved it.
