So this week The Broke and the Bookish made Top Ten Tuesday suuuuuper easy. The topic is Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017. I have read some really fantastic books this year and am happy to share them now. Here they are, in no particular order (except the first one because, duh.)
This was a given, right?
The first book I read in 2017. Actually, I started it at the end of 2016 at about 11 PM on December 31st. I was falling short on my Goodreads Challenge last year, so I found a bunch of free chick lit and cozy mysteries for free via BookBub. With ten books to go and an hour left, I threw in the towel and decided to end the year with a book I was sure to love. And I did.
I know, I know. It's a shocker any time something other than non-fiction appears on one of my lists.
WHAT?! A book NOT non-fiction or even historical fiction?? I know. As mentioned above, last year I was behind on my Goodreads Challenge. I found the first book in the Mercy Watts series as a result and HATED it. Parts of it took place in Lincoln, Nebraska, ON CAMPUS even at UNL, and so much was wrong, I was furious. But then I found a box set that was also free and I kept plugging away and I am glad I did for two reasons. 1) The books got better as the series and novellas went on and 2) Mercy's hot cop "cousin". Cousin is in quotes because they are not actually cousins, Chuck was adopted by her uncle when he and Chuck's mom got married (and divorced a few years later). Mercy and Chuck are now dating, and I promise it is not as weird as it sounds.
I have to stop here or the list will go on for a while. Let me know what you think of my list and leave a link to your own.
