Fictionophile’s Top Reads of 2017

Wow! Was it ever hard to choose my top reads this year!

Of the 103 titles I read in 2017 so many of them were top notch.
The best I could do was narrow it down to 25 Top Titles.

All were, for me, 5 STAR reads.

So, in no particular order, my favorite reads of 2017 were:

The Bird Tribunal by Agnes Ravatn

The Girl in the Garden by Melanie Wallace

Weathering by Lucy Wood

Out of the Blue by Gretta Mulrooney

Rainy Day Sisters by Kate Hewill

The Stolen Child by Lisa Carey

I See You by Clare Mackintosh

Gone without a trace by Mary Torjussen

The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg

Sewing the Shadows Together by Alison Baillie

House. Tree. Person. by Catriona McPherson

The Beautiful Dead by Belinda Bauer

A Dark so Deadly by Stuart MacBride

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Entry Island by Peter May

The Missing Ones by Patricia Gibney

I Found You by Lisa Jewell

The Birdwatcher by William Shaw

Lost for Words by Stephanie Butland

In a Cottage in a Wood by Cass Green

The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce

Malagash by Joey Comeau

Seas of Snow by Kerensa Jennings

Dead Woman Walking by Sharon Bolton

Odd Child Out by Gilly Macmillan

2017 was a stellar year for reading.

Here’s hoping that 2018 will be as rewarding.

Happy New Year everyone!

    So many on your list that I’ve read or that I have. And I LOVE your graphic. Would you be willing to share what tools you use? I’m working on adding more visual elements to my blog and yours are so fabulous! I’ve just started playing with Canva.

    Have a wonderful, wonderful New Year! And I’m so looking forward to seeing what’s in store for your 2018 reading year. 🙂

    Yes. I enjoyed Clare Mackintosh’s “I See You” and “I Let You Go”, amongst others this year.
    I am not sure I could find the time to read 103 books, quite a feat.
