Only one crossover with my list - and that was from 2016 when I read (and loved) The Bees. So many books in the world, too little time!


Every year I post some of my favorites on FB so here's what I posted today:
Some of my favorite reads in 2017:
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
The Orphan Keeper by Camron Wright
The Last Witness by Glenn Meade
Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly
The Mother's Promise by Sally Hepworth
A Man called Ove by Frederick Backman
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Caroline: Little House Revisited by Sarah Miller
Nobody Don't Love Nobody by Stacey Bess
The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck
Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
And a couple of thrillers just for fun:
Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris
Say Nothing by Brad Parks


LOVE Salt to the Sea! I read A Man Called Ove in 2016 and loved it, too. (Ove is my husbands twin. Grumpy but he builds my bookshelves.) I checked out Caroline and will check it out again and actually read it. Ditto The Women in the Castle!
