2017’s Best Book of the Month Roundup

With just a handful of hours left in 2017, I’ve logged my last book of the year on GoodReads (#148) and have my official “best of the month” roundup for the year. (Best of the month = best book that I read that month, regardless of publication date.) If you are looking for something to kick off your 2018 reading list, this is a great place to start!

  1. My 2017 pick was: Reading with Patrick: A Teacher, a Student, and a Life-Changing Friendship by Michelle Kuo. I am embarrassed to say not one of the 50 I read this year is on your list, but that just means I have 11 more recommendations to get to… Pachinko has been on my shelf since early last year, but I keep placing something on top of it. I have it to read this year most definitely.
