One of my favorite feelings has always been that of finishing a really good book. Every time it's bittersweet: on one hand I love when storyline is perfectly wrapped up, but on the other hand I'm always wanting more of the world I was immersed in.
Each year I set a goal for myself to read a certain number of books (usually around 20 or so), and I thought that it would be fun to share my favorites. Keep in mind that most of these were not published in 2017. I have shelves upon shelves of books, many of which I buy in bulk from the Goodwill and then forget about for several years. In 2017 I wanted to start making a dent in my bargain books, so that I can continue buying more without guilt. However, a few of these are more recent because I can never resist a trip to the Amazon book store after someone recommends something to me.
In no particular order, here are my favorite books that I read last year:
Let me know if you end up reading or have read any of these books, I would love to know what you think - I'd also love recommendations for what to add to my list for 2018!
