Book Club Thursday 2017



Welcome back to Book Club Thursday! 

I can't believe how fast they year has gone by. I am so looking forward to Book Club Thursday in 2018. We have a ton of new theme posts we are doing next year and I'm just so excited about it. Since in this post we'll be wrapping up the year of 2017 and what posts we liked and didn't like, plus our upcoming schedule and which books we can't wait for next year I will tell you upfront that this will be a long post.

Least Favorite

My least favorite post this year was where we did a joint review of Cottage at Firefly Lake by Jen Gilroy. It was my pick and I so badly wanted to read this book. Unfortunately it didn't rock my world. I can still remember how disappointed I was.  Here's the link to that review. 

Favorite

This post was harder to pick. I really loved so many of our posts for the last year. Picking just one seemed wrong but I'm only doing one each or otherwise I won't stop. So my favorite post this year was a Remember When post we did in April. I talked about all the people that started me on the road to read and kept me there. I really loved that post. Here's the link to that one. 

If you had a favorite post of ours from the past year I'd love to hear about it. 

So here's a look at what we have coming up for 2018
