End of Year Book Survey

So the perpetualpageturner creates this end of year survey every year so I thought this would be a great way to talk about 2017 in terms of books

Number Of Books You Read: 112

Number of Re-Reads: 2

1. Best Book You Read In 2017?

I loved a lot of books but probably Simon Vs The Homo Sapians Agenda by Becky Albertalli

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t? Internet Famous by Danika Stone

3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?  

Big Little Lies by Lianne Moriatey- damn that book was unexpectedly good.

4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?

I don’t really push anyone to read anything because I know there’s no point expect for my sister- I recommended her a bunch of books and she read them. Like When Dimple Met Rishi—she really liked that book

 5. Best series you started in 2017? Best Sequel of 2017? Best Series Ender of 2017?

Anne Marie Mclemore- Wild Beauty was phenomenal
