    I will vote for The Bear and the Nightingale in everything, always!

    I need to read more of these. At least I was able to vote in four categories!

    The Bear and the Nightingale was my favorite read/listen of 2017. I listened to the e-audio book and loved it so much that when I learned that it was the first book in the Winternight trilogy, I bought the book. I read it again in January, before listening to The Girl in the Tower (the second book in the Winternight trilogy) and following along on my own copy. I’m anxiously awaiting the release of the third book, The Winter of the Witch, scheduled to be out in August.

    You can NEVER go wrong with Jodi Picoult! Every book of hers is great and she’s a fantastic person.

  4. C Rubenkonig says:

    Thank you. I really enjoy hearing of other books through readers’ experiences.

  5. Isaac says:

    Currently enjoying Atlas Obscura. I’m proud to say I’ve been to each of the locations listed in Washington, and more than I would have guessed throughout the West. the book provides a lot of great ideas of random things to see while travelling.

  6. Long way to a small angry planet! OH MY GOSH! So many intriguing, thought provoking threads AND an easy read.
