Best Books Read in 2017

I actually read less books this year even though I had more time. I still had a lot of fantastic books, but not as much overall then last year, I think. Again, there were a few new authors and series that I found and devoured which are going to be on this list, as some old favorites, and new books from some really wonderful authors! 

I read books from January to December, and of those, were the ones that I absolutely loved, be it writing, thinking about it after, or the emotions it evoked, like "I hate that villain, they're so bad! HATEHATEHATE!!!! Yep.

So here's those books in alphabetical order so there's no strangeness among them!

So first off is Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton, Guilty Pleasures, The Laughing Corpse, Circus of the Damned,  The Lunatic Cafe, Bloody Bones, The Killing Dance, Burnt Offerings, Blue Moon, The Girl Who Was Infatuated With Death, Obsidian Butterfly, Narcissus in Chains, Cerulean Sins, Incubus DreamsMicah, Danse Macabre, The Harlequin, Blood Noir, Skin Trade, Flirt, BulletHit List, Beauty, Kiss the Dead, Dancing, Shutdown, Affliction, Jason, Dead Ice, Wounded, and Crimson Death.

Not so funny, short story, while I was working on this post, my computer froze, and I had to restart it. The last time I'd saved it, apparently, was just after I did Letters to the Lost, while I had been working on Two Nights. Which was apparently 60-ish books that I had to redo. Not fun, but I have redone it! 

So yeah, those are the best books that I read in 2017!
