2018 A to Z Challenge Update

A friend messaged me asking for help selecting books for this A to Z challenge she was trying to do in 2018.  I helped her pick a few books and then kind of forgot about the challenge.  Then in November we were having dinner and she mentioned the challenge again and I wondered how many books/short stories did I read or listen to that fulfilled letters.  So I took a look and realized there were only a few letters that I didn't have and knew I could finish the alphabet before the end of the year.

Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
