2017 may have ended over two weeks ago, but due to a prolonged (and continuing) fight with a never-ending cold, I didn’t get around to wrapping up my new favorites and biggest disappointments of the year … until now.
In 2017 — the year of the dumpster fire, not to be confused with the original year of the dumpster fire: 2016 — I completed all five of my reading challenges and accomplished my goal of starting and finishing 100 books.
Keep scrolling to check out the best and worst books I read in 2017, or head to GoodReads to see a visual list of all the books (the good, the bad and the in-between) I read last year.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick is a the first in a murder mystery trilogy from Maureen Johnson: Truly Devious!
In addition to being set in a prestigious boarding school (!), the book’s main characters is a true-crime junkie (!!) determined to solve a 1920s cold case (!!!).
Was Johnson’s latest trilogy written just for us!?!
The first book in the Truly Devious series hits shelves on January 16, 2018.
