Best Books of 2018 So Far

We are halfway through 2018 and already we have been spoilt by so many brilliant reads!

Tim Winton has come early in the year with one of the strongest novels of his prolific career. There've been brilliant local debuts from Boy Swallows Universe to The Tattooist of Auschwitz joining ranks with fantastic crime thrillers and some big names in international fiction. Peter FitzSimons has immortalised Monash's finest hour in another bestselling military history. We've had inspirational works of Australian biography and memoir, great new cookbooks and more. And then there's all the new books our kids and and YA readers have been devouring!

We thought it only best to pause now, and give our highlights for the year to date. With delight we present the BEST BOOKS OF 2018 (so far). There’s a Top 10 Non-Fiction, Top 10 Kids, Top 10 Young Adult, and a Top 10 Fiction.
