Well, then. It's sure that time of year when people list their lists of lists of the previous year. And I'm no different. As previous years, this is a list of the book I read in 2017. Some Thriller, some Non-Fiction, some Historical Fiction, I think you'll find. It was a year where I again … Continue reading Best of 2017
