While it seems everyone else is super organized and has already posted their favorite reads of the year, I have decided to finally embrace the ‘perpetual state of behindness’ that I seem to live in. So, here I am, a week or two later, finally compiling my list of the 7 books I read in 2017 that gave me all the feels.

I try to space everything out so that when the boyfriend and I actually head home for Christmas, we have some money to go get drinks with friends too.
