Best in Books

1. Best book you read in 2017?
Paper Princess by Erin Watt

2. Book you were excited about & thought you were going to love more but didn’t?
I ended up in a long funk in 2017 so if I wasn't in love I would just put it away to pick up at another time. I didn't have any on my DNF or didn't love book this year because I felt it was unfair to read it if I wasn't in the mood. 

3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read in 2017?
The Darkest Corner by Liliana Hart is one that I wasn't sure about but loved. I actually finished it in one day because I coudln't put it down. 

4. Book you “pushed” the most people to read in 2017?
I didn't do much pushing this year mainly because those I see on a regular basis or talk to aren't into books. I also feel like I'm beating a dead horse when I talk about it all the time. 

5. Best series you started in 2017? Best sequel of 2017? Best series ender of 2017?
The Royals by Erin Watt. I read the trio in just a short weekend it was hard to put down. I've had it on my kindle for ages but never seemed to give it a shot. Now I can't believe I waited so long. Love Love Love it!!! 

6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2017?
Erin Watt

NYC Mecca series by Jaymin Eve it's amazing

Much Ado About Nothing by Lily Cahill is a beautiful twist on one of my favorite Shakespear books.
