My Year in Books: 2017

Click here for the Goodreads summary

In 2017 I read 198 books. Out of those 198 books, I gave six books five stars. The three that were not re-reads are:

In The Woods by Tana French (Dublin Murder Squad #1)

“What I warn you to remember is that I am a detective. Our relationship with truth is fundamental but cracked, refracting confusingly like fragmented glass. It is the core of our careers, the endgame of every move we make, and we pursue it with strategies painstakingly constructed of lies and concealment and every variation on deception.”

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle #3)

“Blue was perfectly aware that it was possible to have a friendship that wasn’t all-encompassing, that wasn’t blinding, deafening, maddening, quickening. It was just that now that she’d had this kind, she didn’t want the other.”

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

“There were things Thor did when something went wrong. The first thing he did was ask himself if what had happened was Loki’s fault. Thor pondered. He did not believe that even Loki would have dared to steal his hammer. So he did the next thing he did when something went wrong, and he went to ask Loki for advice.”
