My 2017 | MDSV

Days 29 & 30 #SeasonsReadings2017 #FaveBookishMoments #BestBooksof2017 It's almost 2:AM here so Happy New Year! The firecrackers have died down but I'm still awake so I'm catching up on photo challenges. My favorite bookish moments have been spent on Litsy (thank you all for them!) ❤️These were my best books of the year, in no particular order. Jumping on the #17in2017 bandwagon & it was a hard to cut off there-I could have easily kept going. 📚❤️

Cinfhen Great list 💜I‘ve read some and hope to read some more❣️❣️❣️ 5y
MinDea Great picks. Some I have read and agree with and some are on my TBR. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 5y
Mdargusch It looks like we have similar tastes in books. I will be looking into a few of these titles I haven‘t read yet. 👍🏼 5y

RealLifeReading What a great reading year you've had! 5y
Mitch You‘ve read some stunners in 2017! Station Eleven is one book that I can still almost visualise the whole story scene by scene in my mind. That plane! Hope 2018 is as good for you @DebinHawaii ! Happy New Year 5y

This made my New Year‘s Eve Day a fun and cozy read! While not entirely unpredictable, there are some surprises here - and some great lines! The past/present storylines worked well together- but I hope some of the grislier scenes don‘t give me bad #NewYearsDreams! It‘s definitely one that I am sure many are #LookingForwardToIn2018 as well! #SeasonsReadings2017 @RealLifeReading #DecDays @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Well played 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻Happy 2018❤️ 5y
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen Thanks!! And Happy New Year to you as well!!! 😊 5y

Anddd here they are--my top 10 favorite books of 2017!! I'd highly, highly recommend all of these--I gave 5 stars to all of them except Borne, which got 4.25 stars. Overall it was an amazing reading year for me, maybe my best yet! Let me know if you've read any of these and I hope you all have a very happy New Year!! 🎉🥂 I'm in New York for the weekend visiting friends to ring in 2018 🥂 #seasonsreadings2017 @RealLifeReading

Book_Shark Thanks for the recommendations! Will have to give them a read. Which do you recommend starting with? Which was your favourite? 5y
tomes4gnomes Great list! 3 of these are in my TBR for 2018: Hunger, Borne, and the Jemisin trilogy. (edited) 5y
Beachesnbooks @tomes4gnomes Nice! Hope you enjoy! 5y
Beachesnbooks @Book_Shark If I had to pick an overall favorite it'd probably be Hunger--I love Roxane Gay so much 5y

Didn't complete my Goodreads challenge. Didn't finish the @bookriot #ReadHarder challenge before the end of the year. Did buy a house. Swings and roundabouts. Happy new year, everyone. #LookingForwardTo2018 #SeasonsReadings2017 @RealLifeReading #NewYearDreams #DecDays @Cinfhen
