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.
Welcome to the July episode of the Spines With Wines live book club. Yes, that’s right, the July episode.
Spines With Wines is made up of myself (Cassie-la) and book blogger/BookTuber Kristin Hackett and is your typical drunken book club … you know, except online.
This month, we finally got around to discussing Eliza and her Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia!
Based on Becky Albertalli’s debut novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Love, Simon is a contemporary love story about in-the-closet Simon and the anonymous boy he falls for online.
Funny and heartfelt, we cannot wait to see this LGBT novel come to life on the big screen.
Love, Simon will premiere in theatres nationwide on March 16, 2018 and stars precious cinnamon roll Nick Robinson, who plays the titular Simon.
