Best Books of 2017

It’s that time of year again. When I realize I’ve read one, maybe two, of the year’s “Best Books,” as decided by those lofty taste makers. It doesn’t help my cause that I’m notoriously bad at reading new books (although last year wasn’t too bad). Remember those lists I made last year of the new books I couldn’t wait to read? Well, I think I read one of them. Oops.

I do own the Goodreads book of the year, The Hate U Give, and I’m hoping to read that by the end of the year. Other winners include:

Pachinko by Min Jin Lee which I’ve heard great things about. My former mother daughter book club (which is just the mothers now, and sometimes me), is reading it for their next book, so I might tag along. (NYT)

Priestdaddy by Patricia Lockwood which Jeff and Rebecca mention at least once a month on the Book Riot podcast. So now I’m really intrigued. (NYT)


When Dimple Met Rishi  by Sandhya Menon, which I was really excited about and I tried reading, but just couldn’t do it. I tried at least three times. (NPR)

For your own reading pleasure, I’m going to provide some links below to Best Books of 2017 lists.
