All the Books I Purchased in 2017

Relatively speaking (in book blogging terms), I don’t think I buy many books.  I’ve always been selective about which books deserve a place on my shelf. I used to only buy books I considered my absolute favourites. In the past few years, I’ve been able to take advantage of my sister’s staff discount and buy a few more books – books that are new releases I think I’ll love or books that I want to support financially. Here’s a rundown of all the books I purchased in 2017. All books purchased new from Chapters unless otherwise noted. Titles link to reviews where applicable.
