Top Ten Tuesday – Best of 2017

Posted December 12, 2017 by Bonnie in Top Ten Tuesday / 10 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted byย The Broke and the Bookish

At the time of writing this post, I’ve finished 128 books. Not counting re-reads, I had just eight 5-stars, two 4.5-stars, and a ton of four stars. It was a fairly decent reading year, despite my record year of DNFs (currently sitting at 26), but I didn’t have as many memorable reads as I had hoped. But these ten (plus two I’m still in the middle of) were quite excellent. ๐Ÿ™‚

Late Wife by Claudia Emerson
I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl
The Possessions by Sara Flannery Murphy

The Golden Dynasty (Fantasyland #2) by Kristen Ashley
Isolation by Bex-Chan
One Fell Sweep (Innkeeper Chronicles #3) by Ilona Andrews
The Empty Grave (Lockwood & Co. #5) by Jonathan Stroud
The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter

This is the problem with doing a Best Of list before the year is even over. I’m not even finished but I’m already loving these two so these are going on the list as awesome too.

How to Talk to a Widower by Jonathan Tropper
Strange Weather by Joe Hill

  1. Two of your favourites for this year (Ephron and Reichl) are on my TBR list thanks to your reviews ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think your DNF figure is admirable – if I did the same I might not have had as many two-star reads this year (there’s been quite a few lately. Or maybe I’m just getting grumpy and mean in my old age?!).

    Always love Tropper (although I think that’s the only one I haven’t read!).

    • Well, I hope they end up being just as memorable for you!

      I feel like even with all the DNF-ing that I’ve had a really low year of ratings. I also think it’s because I’m getting grumpy and mean in my old age. Lol

      This is only my second Tropper! After reading a loving This Is Where I Leave You, I proceeded to buy up almost all of his others and then never read any of these. Picked this up on a whim and am very much enjoying it. I love him.
