Best of Year

2017 in Review

December 31, 2017

I can’t believe 2017 is over! This year has been crazy busy for me (I studied off-campus in San Francisco for a semester, went abroad for 5 weeks over the summer, and finished my second-to-last semester of college) and I’m excited to see what 2018 has in store! As a blog, The Heart of a Book Blogger grew exponentially and I look forward to continuing working on it next year. I’m thankful for all the blogging and Twitter friends I made this past year and hope to continue building friendships next year!

As the year wraps up, I want to share my favorite reads of 2017!

Best of 2017

{Books are listed in the order that I read them—all books were rated 4+ stars}

I also made pretty aesthetics for all of the books I read this year, so I’ll just leave a link to that right here if you want to check it out! This definitely enhanced my reading experience and I will be doing it again in 2018!

Here’s to an amazing 2018! Happy New Year, everyone!

PS – I’m hosting my first ever Twitter chat to ring in the New Year tonight! I hope to see you there!

    Noteworthy and Always & Forever, Lara Jean both made my list of 2017 favorites, too! Thanks so much for being an awesome cohost for the Twitter chat last night– I had a blast. Happy New Year, Jordan!

    I loved Ember in the Ashes. Have you read the sequel? I haven’t yet. I think there are book 2 and 3 for the series..

      I haven’t read the sequel yet either! Book 3 releases in May so I’m planning to read it closer to then! 🙂
