this is a bit overdue - i think i finished up this set of 12 books about 5 weeks ago. a few of my favorites are highlighted above. my favorite book from this batch was news of the world by paulette jiles - i chose this book for the prompt 'a genre you don't normally read'. i also really, really enjoyed reading the girl you left behind by jojo moyes - it was for the prompt 'set in 2 time periods'.
and my favorite 3x3 insert that i recently created was for a bustle book club read back in march - american street by ibi zoboi. i'm really glad i read this immigrant story & was then able to attend the book club meeting with the author at strand books.
a list of all the books i've read this year is over at my goodreads 2017 bookshelf.
