Best Books of 2017

Last year I read 108 books. Of these, there were 7 which merited 5 stars in my personal scoring system. One was a so-called Young Adult book, by the brilliant Patrick Ness; two were non-fiction: a kind of memoir by John Le CarrĂ©, and a wonderful book about the art and literature of this country in the middle of the 20th Century. 
If I was forced to pick one of these as my absolute best of the year, it would be Reservoir 13, which is quiet and beautiful, and unlike any other book I have ever read.
The titles and authors are:

  1. Such a varied collection.
    I haven't even attempted a Best Reads 2017 post. I think that Fredrik Backman would be high on the list though.
    I will have to explore Reservoir 13. Thank you - and happy reading.


It's great when you leave a note!
