Top Ten Tuesday --- Best Books I've Read In 2017 So Far




Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.


The following is my list of best reads for 2017 so far.

1. Kentucky On The Rocks by Gwendolyn Grace
2. The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel
3. The Sound Of A Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey
4. Juliet Takes A Breath by Gabby Rivera
5. Bone Deep by Bonnie Dee
6. Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frame
7. Eat Dirt by Josh Axe
8. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo
9. All By My Selfie by Jo Noelle
10. Deenie by Judy Blume

So, which books have been your favorite reads so far this year?

  1. These are actually all new to me but I remember reading Judy Blume years ago! It's always great to go back and see how wonderful our reading year has been, right?

  3. I read the Sound of a Wild Snail Eating a number of years ago & absolutely adored it too. I picked it up for the title alone...as I discovered on one camping trip exactly what the sound of a wild snail eating sounds like as he chomped his way through my road map book!!

    Have you used any of the tidying up tips from Kondo's books yet? I refolded my clothes, but haven't got to the photos yet.

    PS love the design and colour scheme of your blog - gorgeous :-)

    1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It's wonderful to find someone else who's also loved reading The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating.

      I'm in the process of decluttering right now using the Marie Kondo Method.... It's tough taking that first step!

  8. I read The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating recently as well. It was such an interesting book. Good choice there.

    And Judy Blume books are a good bet in general. Istiningdyah, I sure hope you read more books from her soon.

  36. It looks like an interesting list. I've already red the Marie Kondo book and even though I found a lot of her ideas helpful, I doubt I'll fold my socks anytime soon.

  37. I've heard a lot of things about Amy Engel's 'Ivy' books, but haven't read any of them. Someday I might pick them up because I've heard good things! :)
