Favorite Books Of 2017Posted: December 27, 2017
In lieu of a book review, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at all the books I’ve read this year and pick out some favorites. In no particular order:
Gentlemen & Players by Joan Harris: An engaging mystery with a pretty good twist. Even though I could kinda guess it, it’s still quite well done.
Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach: Funny, educational, and makes me want to become a tree after I die.
Night Watch by Terry Pratchett: Of course, how would my book list be complete without a Discworld book, right? (Though by my calculation, I only have 10 books left in the series, so I need to space them out.) “Feet of Clay” may have been the book that makes me fall in love with the Watch, but this is the one that solidifies that love. It’ll make you cry.
Overall, it’s a balanced mix of genres, fictions and non-fictions, and male and female authors. A pretty good year of reading, wouldn’t you say?
