#MustReadIn2017Update



           Several years ago, Carrie Gelson of There's A Book for That and Maria Selke of Maria's Melange started us down the path of giving love to all the books that came before, the ones we have on shelves, but still haven't read! There is a small group of us who began sharing lists titled #MustReadIn2014.  My list is now #MustReadIn2017, a few from the previous lists. You can see #MustReadIn2016 above, too.
        Thanks for hosting, Carrie!  Find the latest group update HERE!

Here are the books I've read, and am now starting the graphic novel of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. I've loved this story, love all Gaiman's work, so bought this a long time ago. And guess what? It's kept sinking to the bottom of the pile. This time, I will read it, number 14 on my list of 26. You can see the entire list above on the bar under the header.







          The best ones, the ones you should not miss: all of them! If you want to read more about each, check my Goodreads reviews. I placed them on the list because I read the many reviews by the people who share the books they read for the Monday Reading meme hosted by Kellee Moye, Ricki Ginsberg and Jen Vincent or Horn Book or on Goodreads, etc. And I already know that you love them, so I should, too! Thank you all!

  2. My daughter just finished The 7th Most Important Thing and loved it. She actually hugged the book to her chest when she finished it.
    I really want to read Friendship. Might have to put that one on my 2018 list!

  3. I still need to read the March trilogy. There's a few here, like Blue Birds, that I don't know and will have to check out.

  6. So there was a horrible incident in southern Iowa this week that has completely inspired me to buy the March trilogy for my family's library. I keep marveling through all these situations that literature keeps coming to the forefront as a place to start conversations.

    1. The March Trilogy is beautifully done, Kendra. I'm sorry about your news and hope they bring some historical perspective for you. They are both tragic and celebratory!

    1. I'm so glad I read those, Crystal. The Graveyard Book is a favorite, but now I'm loving the graphic one too.

  8. Some of my favorites on your list - The Seventh Most Important Thing and the Girl Who Drank the Moon. When Friendship Followed Me Home is on my list and I still haven't read The Graveyard Book or the March books. At least we know we'll never run out of books to read!
