2017 was a great reading year for me, and today I’m sharing the best-of-the-best: the handful of truly exceptional titles that earned a spot at the top of my list.
I track my titles in my reading journal, and put a simple little star by especially noteworthy titles. Despite my best efforts at record-keeping, I’m probably forgetting a favorite here, because I always do. I tried to keep my list short, or I could have included thirty titles.
First up: fiction. (Not in order.)
Next up: nonfiction. Once again, I read far more fiction than nonfiction in 2017, but I still had a healthy number of nonfiction titles to choose from. These were the three books I couldn’t stop thinking about, that provided both fantastic reading experiences and whose ideas have stuck with me for months, the ones I keep thinking about and coming back to.
I feel like I’ve done more than my usual amount of re-reading in 2017. These are the books that blew me away for the second, third, or sixth time.
