Favorite Reads of 2017
Asking a bookworm to choose her favorite book is like asking a cat lady to pick her favorite feline, or asking a hoarder to pick his favorite box of antique bobble heads. It's just nearly impossible. But I can try and narrow it down for you so that you can at least pick from a variety. This year was probably my favorite year of reading. There were so many moving, well-written, thought-provoking and thrilling stories. I read 65 books, including print, e-books and audiobooks. My goal was 60 so I was so happy about surpassing my goal!

There is just no way to choose favorites so I am just going to highlight the books that stood out to me the most and link to them so you can read more about them on either my past reviews or Goodreads. I am not saying these books were the only good ones I read. There are literally tons of amazing books but I just wanted to give you a quick round up.

Another thing I wanted to share about 2017 was the pure joy that my bookstagram family brings me. Here is a collection of the top posts that helped me reach thousands of other bookworms who I have so many things in common with. I absolutely love taking photos of books and sharing them with you. It gives me such a great creative outlet but it also connects with me with others who are reading and reviewing as well. The fact that publishers and authors trust me with their books and send me copies in the mail is a dream come true and an honor! Here are the Instagram photos that were my tops posts this year:
