Top *Eleven* Favorite Books of 2017

toptentuesday2

I know, I know … it’s topĀ tenĀ Tuesday. Not top eleven Tuesday. But 2017 was such a good year for books. I seriously started with 24 books on the list, and whittling the last one out proved impossible. So you are getting my eleven favorite books of the year, skewed heavily toward my interest in YA, but with a surprisingly high number of “adult” books making the list this year. Which of these have you read and which do you want to? Let me know in comments!

Top Ten Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit

Hi friends! Sorry, I’ve been missing. Trying to finish NaNoWriMo and do revisions on another project kept me busy! But I didn’t want to miss this Top Ten Tuesday. I always ask my creative writing students this questions as a springboard for talking about using sensory language in setting descriptions. Here are books with places that are vividly described and characters I’d love to meet.
