If you’re friends with me on Twitter, you know how much I adore reading round-ups of “best of” lists.
Here are some of my favorite lists of the best books of 2017.
It’s a best of the “best of” lists, if you will (ba-dum-dum). Hoooooooo, boy.
“The 10 Best Books of 2017”
“2017: This Year in Books”
“Best 20 Books of 2017” (hint, click “list” to get it as one scrollable list)
“Best Books of 2017” (don’t miss the other booky lists at the bottom of the article)
“Readers’ Choice Awards 2017”
“The Ten Best Books of 2017”
The Morning News
“Tournament of Books Long List”
And of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my own Read Remark list of top 10 favorite reads in 2017.
I was looking forward to the Entertainment Weekly best books of 2017 list, but they’ve presented it online in one of those annoying slideshows you have to click through with lots of ads and no scrollable option. I refuse to reward that clickbaity behavior by linking to it, so their opinions will be absent this year. Google it if you want, but beware the sloppy UX.
Casually eyeballing it, commonly named books include:
- Lincoln in the Bardo
- Sing, Unburied, Sing
- Little Fires Everywhere
- Killers of the Flower Moon
- The Power
- White Tears
