2017 was an excellent reading year for me – in fact, I actually had trouble limiting my “Best of” list to ten. I’ve found my tastes have changed over the years, as I am reading more historical mysteries, but I still enjoy excellent contemporaries and historical romances. Here are ten of my favorite books of 2017, in no particular order.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
This was a hard book to read but the heroine was very endearing. Due to circumstances in her family life, Eleanor is alone but trying to learn how to live in today’s world with the help of others. Lots of sadness but humor too.
