2017 Book Roundup

Another year has gone by and it's now time to compile the list of books that I read in 2017. Like last year, some of these books haven't been reviewed (yet in some cases and never in others) so you'll need to keep an eye on the blog to see what I thought of them. I'm going to do something slightly different this year. I've decided to include rereads in my count because I want to be able to keep a running record (digitally) of everything I've read in a given year. Here we go!
