The Best Books of 2017

Here are a list of the best books I read in 2017:

Fractured – Catherine McKenzie

Fry – Lorna Dounaeva (I also recommend The May Queen Killers, because that’s brilliant – but I read it last year, so I shouldn’t really include it here.)

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie – Muriel Sparks

Naïve Super – Erlend Loe

The Universe Versus Alex Woods – Gavin Extence

We Have Always Lived in the Castle – Shirley Jackson

I’m looking to read some more excellent books in 2018, so if you have any recommendations, I would be thrilled to hear them.

  1. One of my favs was “Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah. It’s nonfiction, about his life growing up biracial in apartheid South Africa. I actually listened to the audiotape because Noah narrates it himself. He’s funny and eloquent and can nail any accent. I loved it.
