Top 25 Books of 2017 ~ Two Girls and a Book Obsession

We would be lying if we said this was the hardest list we ever complied… not because we struggled to come up with 25, but because we could easily have come up with hundreds!!! This list was written with the most book love any one book lover could ever imagine!

2017 was the BEST bookish year ever because Jenn and I found each other. There’s no doubt that thousands of miles may physically separate us but our love of books have brought us together. I’m so grateful for our friendship and our reading experiences!

Here are our top 25 books of 2017 and we KNOW our 2018 best-book-list will be even harder to compile! Thank you to all of our author favs for writing amazing stories we can cherish forever and for your support with our blog!
