I Like 2 Types of Books Apparently….

top 2017 readsWhile 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.

Seven you ask?  That is a weird number to choose.

Well, you see, five was too few, I couldn’t narrow it down that far.  But ten was too many, I couldn’t categorize 10% of the books I read as favorites.  So, I settled for the in between.

And conveniently, I can group all seven of these reads in to two distinct categories.  Ready? Ready.

It’s All in the De-Tales – Whole Series Edition! (The Bone Season is GORG)

its all in the detailsThere is so much to consider when picking up a book if you are judging it how it looks: the cover yes, but also the spine details, the back cover, the pages (are they deckled?! are they sprayed?!), the title pages, the chapter headers, the naked spine, the naked hardcover, and I could go on and on and on…

The Sunday Post

I have been searching the book blog-o-sphere for new memes and prompts that I can incorporate into a weekly lineup to just make blogging at little more interesting.  And I have learned that if you ask The Google Machine anything, anything at all, you will receive.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and it is a chance to share: news.  This is a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things you may have received, and maybe talk about what is coming up for the week on your blog.  (To be honest, I don’t even know what I have planned for the coming week so sharing that info with you seems a little…premature.)

Anyways, enough jibber jabber and let’s get to it!
