My Favorite Books of 2017

Let’s be honest, 2017 has been far from my best reading year, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t find some new favorites. It does feel odd writing about my favorite books with half a month left to the year, however. So, even though this is called top ten Tuesday, I will be sharing my top five picks of the year instead. 

No promises, but given how much more free time I will have for the rest of this month than I’ve had for the rest of the year, how much I’ve anticipated the books I plan to read next, and the fact that I finished one of the books on this list yesterday, I suspect there will be a part 2 with five more books to come.

Far’s only hope is a handwritten note from an unknown sender promising him a second chance. Far’s present is not a time of second chances. The sender could be anyone, yet Far knows this is the sole remaining possibility allowing him to fulfill his time traveling dream. Continue reading

August, September, and October Wrap-up

These past few months were eventful to say the least. So eventful that I am wrapping-up my reading experience for three months in one post. Seriously though, there is a lot to cover.
