Until 2017 I never had a full year of blogging somewhat regularly. Therefore, I never did one of these roundups of my top posts. Let me tell you, when I looked these stats up I was quite surprised. I guess I expected my top posts to be for more “famous” authors or titles. Trying to ascertain the reasons these posts were more popular than others, one of the big indicators seems to be not how many fans an author has, but how passionate those fans are. Regardless of the reason(s) these posts were the most popular, I’m always grateful for an audience. While I enjoy reading reviews of books, movies, and almost anything else, it often surprises me when others look to my reviews to help them make a decision on their book reading.
So here they are, my top 5 visited posts from 2017:
A SEAL’s Seduction
This one was actually posted back in October of 2016, right about the time I started posting regularly. And I actually rated it pretty low so it’s a mystery to me why it was so popular of a post.
Everything You Want Me to Be
One of the last books I read last year and it was phenomenal. I still think of it now and again and that’s a sign of great storytelling.
The Turner House
This is another one that has stuck with me, this one for even longer since this post is from September 2016. I’m not sure if it stuck with me because the story takes place in Detroit (I live in the suburbs of Detroit) or because of the story itself…or both. Regardless, it is a book I still recommend.
I’m a bit embarrassed to say that I kind of forgot about this book. And it’s a really good book! Now that it’s back on my radar I’m thinking of at least 3 different people I’m going to be recommending this story to.
Now for my most viewed post of 2017…
Out of Play
I loved this book and keep hoping for another novel from this author sometime soon. I believe she also writes short stories so I may have to change it up a bit and check some of those out. This review is from October 2016!
Was there another review I posted that is a favorite of yours? Have my reviews ever helped you with a decision to read a book (or not read a book)? I’d love to hear from you!
