Kirkus Starred Fiction Reviews of Books Published in 2018

Description: YA titles only included if they appear among the Fiction & Literature listed reviews online. I will try to update as awesome as possible. A list of this kind exists for 2015, which I have already created but should update as Kirkus will add indie titles reviewed after the year in question has ended. I also wish to create analogous lists for 2016 & 2017 when time allows. Note this is not the year-end best of list of books; this is every starred book listed online with a scheduled release in 2018. If you want to update the list if I am not keeping it up to date quickly enough, feel free. But please DO NOT add any book that does not meet the definition for inclusion implicit in the title according to listings here: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/fiction-books-literature/
