The end of the year is here again and time to look back at my year in books, specifically my favorite books of 2017. I chose these books based on if I would read from the author again and of course, how much I liked the book and how often I think about them. In no particular order, here are my top ten favorite books that I read in 2017.
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Shelter by Jung Yun
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
Shopgirl by Steve Martin
Room by Emma Donoghue
Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Matilda by Roald Dahl
Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 1 by Hiromu Arakawa
