2017 BOOKS

Almost one year ago I rediscovered my love of reading for enjoyment, after a few years with my nose buried in anatomy and pharmacology books only. Ok, ok, I confess. I enjoy those books too. But recently I have loved exploring new genres and authors (hello Elin Hilderbrand!), sharing and receiving recommendations from friends, and tracking my books over on Goodreads. I forgot how consumed you can become with a book and the emotions it can pull from you. Love ending my evening in bed with The Bachelor a book as a perfect wind down from the everyday hustle.

Each month I will review the books I read and please comment or share some of your recommendations as well. If you click the book link, it will take you to Amazon to purchase the book. If you click the month link, it will take you to that month’s book review. Since I did not start reviewing until August, months January-July will only be book lists.
