My Best of the Best, Creme de la Creme Reads of 2017

My Best of the Best, Creme de la Creme Reads of 2017

Posted December 12, 2017 in Bookish Things, Memes // 34 Comments

This is the inevitable post of the year, when we have to go through our amazing list of wonderful reads and pick favorites.  Guys, this is the worst.  It is hard.  There are so many good books that came out this year, but there are also a lot of great books that I read that came out last year.  Or two years ago.  Or ten years ago.
