The Best Of 2017
I know, I know. Not ANOTHER 2017 wrap up post. Sorry but I felt like taking a look back on the best of 2017.
As I went back through all the books I read in 2017 to come up with this list I realized I wanted to highlight the books I loved but also the books that stood out in my mind the most. So I had some five star reads that aren't making it to this list which makes me realize I might change their rating on Goodreads. Anywho, here they are!
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Since I've disliked everything else by Rowell this one shocked me. I'm in love with Lincoln and his story.
Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher
Romantic, funny yet heartbreaking, this one will stick out in my mind for a long time and be reread often.
Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson
Hilarious! I laughed so hard I cried.
You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero
A book with more than just an idea but actual solutions and actions to take.
The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
Great ideas presented here.
IT by Stephen King
King never ceases to amaze me. This wasn't a horror story it was beautiful.
The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
I liked this one but was surprised how the story stuck with me all year. I'll be rereading this one for sure.
The Break Down by B.A. Paris
Love this newer author. Her tales are suspenseful and wrap up so deliciously.
Be Frank With Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson
Frank will stick with me for a long time. Adorable story.
Sweet Lamb of Heaven by Lydia Millet
Symbolism done right.
And there you have it! The best, most memorable books I read in 2017.
