BFR (5)

Can you guys actually believe that we only have 4 days left before the end of 2017? It’s as if it was just yesterday when I was drafting an entirely similar post dedicated to my most favorite reads of 2016, and now here I am, coming up with a new one that’s all about my favorite books of 2017.

I’m excited for all the books that I’ll (for sure) be reading, for all the authors that I’ll be supporting, and for all the events that I’ll be going to.  But before anticipating these, I want to take this chance to celebrate all the well-recommended titles that I came to read this year. Let’s get this post started!
