What I'm Reading 2017

Here's the deal... when I love something, I write reviews. When I really love something, I write a blog post about it, and tweet it and so on and so forth. This list is mainly so I can keep track of what I've read, so I can steer clear of authors I didn't enjoy, so I can avoid "meh" reads. I just don't have time in my life to devote to mediocrity. This isn't a rip anyone up or tear anyone down space. It's not my place to do that, and I leave that sort of negative energy for people meaner than me.

There will be a lot of "DNF" notations. There always are. This means nothing more than that a book didn't grab my attention, and I moved on to something else. It doesn't mean that someone else wouldn't find that book perfectly enjoyable.

Links go to Goodreads whenever able, in my ever so feeble attempt to not support any one particular sales outlet.
