For the past couple years I have looked back on the books I have read and listed my favorites (see: 2015, 2016). And this year I will do the same. In total, Goodreads says I read 72 books in 2017. It was a good year for reading, and the amount of books increased due to my Greyfriars Hall studies. I enjoy taking the time to list my favorites so that I am able to look back and see what I enjoyed / my trajectories. With a large pile of personal to-read books for 2018, I look forward to the coming year.
Here are the books I enjoyed the most in 2017, in an order that is intentional but not thoroughly thought through. Click on the book covers to read more or purchase.
