2017 – Some of my favourite Authors whose books I read this year!

I have read many, many books this year! Some were written by authors I have promoted previously on my other blog, Reading Recommendations, and these books I considered to be outstanding! And, in a few cases, I read more than one book by the same author. So, without further ado, here’s a list of those authors’ names and the titles of their books I read in 2017 …

(The links below will take you to that author’s original promotion on Reading Recommendations.)

  1. Wow! Thank you for including me on this wonderful list!

  2. The best series that I have read this year would have to be The Clifton Chronicles by Jeffrey Archer. I would recommend them to anyone.

    And I’ve not read any of these. To be fair, reading (editing) is my day job so I will have ‘read’ nearly 30 books this year. Still not as many as most of you probably.

    1. Morgen, please do list here any books you’ve edited this past year that are outstanding and have gone on to be published or are about to be published. Would love to have an editor’s input!
