Best Books Of 2017

For the last two years I’ve kept a log of all the good books I read, regardless of when they were originally published. You can read my 2015 list by clicking here, and 2016’s by clicking here.

And since I’m nothing if not predictable, I decided to repeat this process for 2017.

So, here’s a look at the best novels, short story collections, and other books I read in 2017.


Exclusive Interview: “An Unkindness Of Ghosts” Author Rivers Solomon


One of the beauties of fiction is that multiple writers can start with the same premise or setting, but end up going in wildly different directions. Take Rivers Solomon’s debut novel, An Unkindness Of Ghosts (paperback, digital). Like Sage Walker’s The Man In The Tree, the recent movies Passengers and Alien Covenant, and countless other sci-fi stories, Solomon’s novel is set on a deep space ship heading to a new home. But in talking to Solomon about it, they revealed that the setting is about all their book shares with those other stories.
