It’s been a wonderful year for book-lovers like me, so I thought a post about my favourite reads for 2017 would be appropriate. I had a real struggle getting this down to just twelve – still, that’s because I wanted a calendar style, so I have only myself to blame for the self-imposed limits. Doh! I’ll get on with, shall I?
It’s an eclectic mix from cosy mystery to serial killers, romantic comedy to historical fiction, legal and medical thrillers to contemporary women’s fiction. But, variety is the spice of life 🙂
Links to the books are below, and I’ll vouch for every single one of them. Not that I’m alone though, many of these have dozens – if not hundreds – of five star reviews, so if you choose any, you’ll be sure of a great story.
January – Winters Day – DM Wolfenden
February – Finding Miranda – Iris Chacon
March – The Seven Year Dress – Paulette Mahurin
April – The Devil’s Prayer – Luke Gracias
May – The Girl from Berlin – Ellie Midwood
June – Forbidden Colours – Nicole Fitton
July – The Wind in the Embers – Malcolm Logan
August – A Patriot’s Act – Kenneth Meade
September – Mirror, Mirror – Jessica Jesinghaus
October – Murder by the Book – Brigitta Moon
November – Plus Size Goddess – Cathy McGough
December – In the Best Interest of the Child – Felicia Denise.
So, feel free to go and fill your Kindle, your Nook or even your bookshelves.
As for me, I’m currently reading The Green Pearl Caper by Phyllis Entis, before settling down with a boxset of the 12 Slays of Christmas featuring Amy M. Reade – as you can see, my reading year is not yet over 🙂
The great news is that there are so many more fabulous reads to come.
Happy Reading everyone!
By the way, if you choose to read any of these wonderful books, please consider leaving a review.
Reviews keep writers writing.
Thanks for reading 🙂
Happy New Book Year x

A great list, Lynne!
If you have a minute, stop by my blog to see the list of 2017 books I read, reviewed and recommend. http://pat-writersforum.blogspot.com
So honored to be a part of your ‘best books’ of the year list! This list is amazing – so much variety and diversity – you delve into a bit of everything – awesome!
I own five of these already. Time to push them up the TBR and look into the rest! 😉
Happy New Year and hope 2018 is another great reading year for you – but don’t forget to WRITE too! 😉
I’m so glad to have found your story , it was a highlight of my reading calendar. I hope 2018 will be as mixed. I’m trying to read outside of my comfort, but I doubt werewolves and vampires will ever get through 🙂
I’ll be looking out for your next book though 🙂 As for writing, I have a few things in mind too. (look at me, all cryptic LOL)
LOL! Paranormal Romance isn’t for everyone! I’m the same way with YA and NA – before I reach the middle of the book, I just wanna smack everyone! LMAO! Wait! Is that my age showing? *Tucks it back in* Better! 😀 😀 😀
Haha – you is crazy lady 🙂

Many ‘best of’ posts/lists will appear in the coming weeks. I’m beyond proud to be a part of this one because of the variety of genres and richness of culture. Add some (or all) of these to your TBR today! Step away from your reading comfort zone and find a new-to-you author! 😀
What a great selection of books and finding mine on your list is a wonderful surprise- I am most humbled and to be amongst so many talented authors wow, just wow. I shall be checking out those I’m not familiar with. Can’t wait to get my hands on your new short story, is it released January 1st? Here’s to a wonderful 2018 x
