Best of 2017 – Year in Review

Best of 2017

Happy New Year! May God preserve your going out and your coming in, from this time forth, and even forevermore.

If you’ve been hanging around here at all in the last week, you’ll know I’ve been sharing some of the fabulous books I’m looking forward to in 2018. But before we say goodbye to 2017 for good, I want to take a few moments (or…*ahem*…a few days!) to look back at some of my favourite reads and bookish moments from the last year. Boy am I thankful for Goodreads, otherwise I’d never remember them all!

I’ve spent many hours agonizing (only a slight exaggeration, unfortunately!) over how to cut this list down or organize it better, but in the end I’ve decided to start my ‘Best of 2017’ review with a month-by-month snapshot of my 2017 favourites. Tomorrow’s Top Ten Tuesday post will look specifically at my favourite new-to-me authors in 2017 (some of whom also appear in this list). Following that, I’m going to be sharing a few specially themed ‘Best of’ lists, but since I’m still finalizing a few of those, you’ll just have to stay tuned to find out what they’ll be! But they’ll be good, I promise you!

For now, I give you my best of 2017. I purposefully restricted this list to books that released in 2017 (I had to limit it somehow!), and you can read my review by clicking on the cover.













Which of these novels made your favourites list for 2017?

Stay tuned for more ‘Best of 2017’ fun throughout the week!

  2. This is a fabulous list. I read much more in 2017 (thanks to a newly emptied nest), and I feel so accomplished being able to check several of these titles off my TBR (thanks to recommendations by book blogging friends). Now I’m going to go back through your review to add a a few more titles. Thank you! Hope your 2018 is blessed, blessed!

    I love all these year end lists – such good recommendations! Having only read six of the ones you’ve listed, my TBR stack is now impossibly tall. Happy New Year!

  7. Thanks for including A Season to Dance! I loved The Austen Escape. I’m a big fan of Katherine Reay and think this book has some of her very best writing.
