Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.
This week’s recommended discussion: What are the best books you read this year? Not necessarily books published this year, but those do count. If you want to vote for the best book published in 2018, be sure to cast your ballot in the annual Pits. I’m too lazy to do a real count, but it looks like a horse race between Circe and I’ll Be Gone In the Dark.
One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone (the OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread).
