What is the BEST book you read in 2017?
A man called Ove
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
The Moth Presents All These Wonders: True Stories About Facing the Unknown
The Book Thief and A Monster Calls.
Discovered Simone St. James this year and read every one of her books then pre-ordered the one that’s coming out this year.
Probably the Goldfinch
On my list for sure!
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. I’ll use any and all opportunities to encourage others to read it and savor it like I did.
My vote, too. Any book -like this one- that can keep a scared person distracted as a hurricane is raging outside is an exceptional read.
Harvey, Irma, or Maria?😣
I hope that you were not too impacted. My kids in Houston ‘ducked’ Harvey, but just barely.
I was lucky but my next door neighbor in my townhouse section lost a lot of her shingles and the tarp. I was spooked as it started getting light out. The tarp was caught up in something in another neighbor’s yard and kept rising and peeking over the fence and going down again. I was relieved when I finally found out what it was. Flooding from the river in some parts of town. We were hit by Matthew the previous year out toward the Beaches and they were still trying to recover from that. I know a lot of people who lived near the river who either basically lost their homes or are trying to rebuild. What was feared with Matthew came true with Irma.
My husband’s cousin lives in Jacksonville Beach and she was okay.
The One Man by Andrew Gross.
WE THE ANIMALS, by Justin Torres
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
A Man Called Ove
‘A Man Called Ove’ is so recommendable as coming up twice . I added it booklist this year.
