  1. Your best-of 2017 list shows once again, there are SO MANY books out there… I haven’t read any of the ones you mentioned, but I gladly take the recommendations 🙂

  2. Well done! I loved Court of Mist and Fury as well, but I haven’t read any of your other favorites. The Outlander series, though, is one of my favorites ever!
