Obama revealed his favorites Friday on Instagram.

“As 2018 draws to a close, I’m continuing a favorite tradition of mine and sharing my year-end lists,” Obama commented. “It gives me a moment to pause and reflect on the year through the books, movies, and music that I found most thought-provoking, inspiring, or just plain loved. It also gives me a chance to highlight talented authors, artists, and storytellers -- some who are household names and others who you may not have heard of before."

Obama also revealed his favorite songs and books of the year.  It is no surprise that the first book on his list is his wife Michelle Obama's recent memoir, Becoming, which he noted is “obviously my favorite!“
