I’m not quite sure if this is supposed to be books released in 2017 or books I read in 2017…so I’m going to go with the latter!
FIVE. Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne
“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”
FOUR. Wonder by R.J. Palacio
“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.”
THREE. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
“It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived.”
TWO. Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Nick and I look at each other.
“I’m not holding your hand,” I tell him, smiling a little.
“All right”–he nods–“but know that I would.”
ONE. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
“The stars dust gold leafing on his skin. And we are looking at each other, just looking, and I swear there are whole lifetimes lived in those small, shared moments.”
Luckily and thankfully, I read MANY amazing and wonderful books this year! What are your top reads of 2017?
