My Favorite Books of 2017

As 2017 comes to an end, I decided to look back over the books I've read this year (close to 250 ... and still counting!) and choose my favorites. Some of the books I really enjoyed aren't releasing until 2018, so I'll keep those on hold for next year. I've sorted my list into three categories: Christian Fiction (which I've read the most of, so it's a bit longer), Mainstream Fiction, and Nonfiction. Hopefully you'll find something from my list to add to your TBR pile. (The books are in no particular order.)
