Whether you are relaxing poolside, surfside or just stuck in the hotel room due to the rain, a good book is a choice for many on Spring Break.
We took a look back at the best fiction books of 2018. Y’all, these are the books we chose to catch up on in our flip flops and shorts for Spring Break 2019:
- Circe– With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man’s world. A 2018 New York Times Bestseller for those that enjoy the times of the gods. Madeline Miller is a definitive up and coming author with both this and The Song Of Achilles being NYT Bestsellers.
- There, There- Tommy Orange’s debut novel follows 12 Native Americans living in Oakland, Calif., over several decades. It traces their connections — and sometimes their collisions — as the narrative jumps from character to character.
- Washington Black – Esi Edugyan’s novel introduces George Washington Black, “Wash,” at 11 years old, enslaved on a sugar plantation in Barbados. Cue a strange friendship, a gruesome death and a wild escape by hot air balloon. The novel was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize.
- Severance– Ling Ma’s “Severance” is a quiet and often darkly funny spin on the much-discussed zombie apocalypse.
- Red Clocks – Leni Zumas “Red Clocks” is a quietly explosive novel that follows in the footsteps of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” but tells a story all its own.It tells the story of 4 women in a not-so-distant future, where national laws govern all fertility matters.
