I had a very strange experience just a few minutes ago. Last night and this morning, while laying in bed, I was thinking of how I hadn’t looked at the Top Ten Tuesday prompt for this week yet, and that I really should. I was also thinking that I really wish Top Ten Tuesday would prompt us to share our best reads of 2017 so far, because I really want to talk about them! So, then I go to check the prompts…and was just creeped out, because this week’s is Best Books You’ve Read In 2017 So Far, hahaha…ha.
For those of you who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is all about, here is a quote from The Broke and the Bookish, the genuises behind this weekly meme!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post and, if you want to, add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s posts (typically put up midnight EST on Tuesday) so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
And now that all of the necessary stuff is out of the way….

to Vice and Virtue
Note: I have a number eleven due to Goodreads somehow not listing Geekerella as “read” for me. I only realized in retrospect that it’s not on this list, and then had to add it in because I couldn’t not include it. So now there are eleven books because I could not remove any of them, especially The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue! I’m still currently reading this book, but it’s already one of my faves of 2017!
