My “have read” 2017 book list

I love books. I love to read books. I’m learning to write books. Here I’m listing the books I’ve read this year. I hope you find a title here that interests you. NOTE: if there are any you’d like to purchase please go to my page BUY THE BOOK! to see if it is listed there. You can follow direct links, making it easier for you.
In blue I’ve  indicated which books are reviewed here on my blog. Also, any book I have marked *(ARC)* is an Advanced Reading Copy I was given in exchange for my free and honest review.
Purple is to indicate the books I read listened to on Audible so that I can do other things at the same time as “reading.”(Refer to Audible.com)
My reading interests vary widely. If you’re interested in any on this list or are encouraged to read more, too, do let me know! If you have suggestions of what may look good in my reading stash I’d love to hear about it.
:) Happy Reading!
PS: This year I participated in the Reading For Research Month challenge in March which added many more books to my reading success.
