Debbie’s Year of Reading, 2017

Hey folks, it’s that time again when I do a special shout-out of my favorite books I’ve read this year. This has definitely been the year of the indie – the first time when most of the books on this list are from indie authors.

So in no particular order, here are my faves (the six books I gave 5 star reviews to on Goodreads). I’m particular happy with this list as it covers a number of different genres and each one of these had a “wow” factor for me. In the comments I’d love to hear what your favorite reads were this year.

Adored this book my Australian writer, Mirren Hogan. The story which follows the tale of the Night Witches, a group of Russian women who flew fighter planes during World War II is the type of story that should be on every school curriculum.

Can we say awesome? I loved L. Woodswalker’s first book, Tesla’s Signal, and this second one was just as immersive and fun to read. Check out my review of Tesla’s Frequency here and pick up a copy.

And now for something a little different. Not-Ready-For-Juillard Players is a literary mystery (sort of) set in a music school. It’s compelling with characters that draw you to them. I met Eileen in my local NaNoWriMo group and feel sad that I didn’t read her beautiful book earlier. I hope she writes more as I adored her writing.

This one was oodles of fun! So Not a Hero is not your ordinary super-hero story. It’s fast paced with a awesome bad-ass woman as the lead character. Looking forward to reading book 2 that’s on my ever-growing reading list.

Like cool urban fantasy with a kick-ass female protagonist. This is the one! I read the first two of E.A.Copen’s Judah Black novels this year and the rest are on my extremely long TBR list. Start with Guilty by Association and continue with Blood Debt.

So here we have it – my five star recommendations – BUT there are a bunch of other cool books I read this year, all of which I enjoyed. Check out my year of reading on Goodreads.
