Top 10 book of 2017

Saturday, December 30, 2017

I managed to read 32 book during 2017, which isn't bad when you take into consideration a new job (that ultimately didn't work out which is why I found a new job that I'll be starting in about 3 weeks), and plowing through classes so that I could finish my grad school degree before 2018. Of those 32 books these are my top 10 favorite (not in any order)!

American Street by Ibi Zoboi
(this is also my favorite book cover!!!)

It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
(a non diverse book)

Beast by Brie Spangler

Little and Lion by Brandy Colbert

The Boy in the Black Suit by Jason Reynolds

(No idea why I didn't review this. lol)

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
(A non-diverse book, but I loved it)

If I was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
(Loved that this was Own Voices)

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
(I wouldn't necessarily put this in the category of diverse either. But it's a great read... or listen)

Holding up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
(not Own Voices but still good)

May your 2018 be filled with joy and books!

 Blogging world, I went away for a while, and from the title of this post, I'm sure you all know why. I FINALLY FINISHED GRAD SCHOOL AFTER FIVE YEARS.

Five years of late nights, study sessions, APA cited papers,website, videos, internship hours (even though I work full time in a library, we'll let that go) and so much more. After loans, and cleaning out my bank account for classes when I decided not to take out any more loans, and some tears I have a Masters in Library and Information Science, MLIS. The first person to obtain a graduate degree of any of my immediate family members (my cousin beat me by a semester).

Thank you to everyone who was rooting for me (even though you didn't know you were). I can finally, truly, dedicate my time to the things that make me happy. Playing my ukulele, listening to podcasts, watching Shemar Moore on Criminal Minds, and reading great books!

Happy New Year everyone!
