Books Read in 2017

Some titles include links to separate video reviews, video wrap-ups, Goodreads reviews, or blog post reviews. Thoughts vary from gushy ramblings; quick, high-level notes; or more in-depth reflections. It’s important to note: If a title doesn’t include a link, that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the book. More than likely, it just means I was too busy to record my thoughts. Enjoy! Cheers to 2018!
