Amazon Announces the Best Books of 2018 (So Far)

Amazon’s editors have compiled a list of books they would like you to buy, and are calling it the best books of 2018. “The annual list is hand selected by the Amazon Books Editors and features the Top 20 books released between January and June 2018—offering readers a mid-year look at the best books.”
