  • Ascension of Larks, by Rachel Linden (June 20, 2017) Surprised by this one’s complex approach to grief, unexpected responsibilities, and re-evaluating one’s dreams as life progresses.
  • Hate to Want You, by Alisha Rai (August 2017)
  • Are You Sleeping, by Kathleen Barber (August 1, 2017)
  • The Heart’s Invisible Furies, by John Boyne (August 2017)
  • My Absolute Darling, by Gabriel Tallent (August 29, 2017) Very upsetting. I saw this on a lot of 2017 lists, but I’m unclear as to why, as I disliked it vehemently.
  • Any Dream Will Do, by Debbie Macomber (August 8, 2017) Meh.
  • The Arsonist, by Stephanie Oakes (August 2017)
  • Unraveling Oliver, by Liz Nugent (August 22, 2017)
  • Sip, by Brian Allen Carr (August 2017)
  • Rebellion, by Molly Patterson (August 2017) A little disappointed by the abrupt stop, but the weaving together of four story threads was well done, in my opinion.
  • A Stranger in the House, by Shari Lapena (August 15, 2017) Fully expected to ditch this after a few chapters, but HOLY LAST MINUTE PLOT TWISTS, BATMAN. Could NOT put it down.
  • The Blinds, by Adam Sternbergh (August 2017)
  • The Daughters of Ireland, by Santa Montefiore (August 2017)
  • Something Like Happy, by Eva Woods (September 5, 2017) Inspirational feel-goodiness at its best. Eyes leaked for the last 100 pages.
  • The Golden House, by Salman Rushdie (September 5, 2017) Gorgeous prose. Couldn’t get interested in the story. Did not finish.
  • A Casualty of War (Bess Crawford Mystery #9), by Charles Todd (September 2017) I’m just loving this series about a WWI battlefield nurse who keeps finding herself in the middle of mysteries. Can’t wait for book 10.

DAYS UNTIL I PICK UP THE NEXT BATCH OF ARCS: 9 (ALA Midwinter 2018, Feb. 9-13)
