TOP SHELF: Favorite Books Read in 2018

This definitely doesn't pass the Bechdel Test, but there are at least a handful of women who are smart and capable. And the story is interesting and quick-paced. CW for child death though.

if you're listening to the audiobook, dude is a loud breather

David Mitchell
“If you show someone something you've written, you give them a sharpened stake, lie down in your coffin, and say, ‘When you’re ready’.”
David Mitchell, Black Swan Green

Colm Tóibín
“..Some of our loves and attachments are elemental and beyond our choosing, and for that very reason they come spiced with pain and regret and need and hollowness and a feeling as close to anger as I will ever be able to imagine. ”
Colm Tóibín

Simon Van Booy
“If there is such a thing as marriage, it takes place long before the ceremony; in a car on the way to the airport; or as a gray bedrooms fills with dawn, one lover watching the other; or as two strangers stand together in the rain with no bus in sight, arms weighed down with shopping bags. You don't know then. But later you realize - that was the moment.”
Simon Van Booy

Pablo Neruda
“I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Tim Powers
“Yeah, there's some unlikely beasts in the world, and it's best to stay near the ones that you've bought drinks for.”
Tim Powers, On Stranger Tides
