Every book I read in 2017

I managed to read 52 books this year and I couldn’t be happier! A few friends requested I round up every book I read in 2017 and it was fun to take a look back. In 2018 I’ll be scaling way back on my reading to focus on writing, but I’d love to hear your book recommendations!

As always, I operate with integrity and would never link to anything I don’t use, love, and/or recommend. To be completely up front and honest with you (because that’s what I do) I’m a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. If you click through to any of these links and buy an item I recommend, I get some money from Amazon, which helps me run this website and put some extra cash in my pocket each month to do things like *save for retirement * and *pay my student loans*. Okay, enough legal jargon. Here they are!
