We all crave something that makes us feel good once in a while. For me, one of the ways of satisfying that craving is finding a light, romantic, will-they-or-won’t-they (you know they will) sort of book.
The Geography of You and Me, by Jennifer E. Smith, had been sitting on my shelf for months. I was saving it, hoping that it would be the perfect choice when I had exactly the type of feel-good craving I just described. That craving hit me hard back in December, and The Geography of You and Me immediately popped into my mind. I didn’t hesitate to pick it up and start reading.
And you know what? It didn’t let me down.

I talk about books a lot on this blog, and that isn’t likely to change any time soon. So why not kick off my new Favourite Five series with a book list?
According to Goodreads, I read 12 new books in 2017. Which doesn’t seem like very many, but they were well complemented by all of the books that I re-read. I don’t know about you, but re-reading books is something I simply can’t give up. There are some books that I love too much to only read once.
Today’s post, though, isn’t about those re-read books. As much as I love them, I’m always looking for new books to add to my read list. I’m happy to say that in 2017, I found quite a few that I’m likely to go back and re-read later on.
So here, in no particular order, are the five books I most enjoyed reading for the first time in 2017.

I won’t lie: I love a good romance now and then. For some reason, romances that start with characters not liking each other all that much seem to call out to me in a particularly loud voice. I think it’s because I like the change away from insta-love, but it’s hard to say.
Either way, On the Edge, by Dani Collins, falls right within that category. I haven’t read it yet, but its summary and today’s excerpt easily had me putting it on my to-read list. Just as I’m sure they’ll have you adding it to yours.

I love a simple, yet eye-catching cover. I’ve helped reveal such covers before, and I’m quite happy to be doing so again today.
The cover of Inseperable, by Siobhan Davis, however, sets itself apart from most of the others that I would put in that simple-but-eye-catching category. Why? Because it also has a distinct sense of… well, why don’t I just let you take a look?

Sometimes, I read a novel’s summary and my mind starts spiralling. Not in a bad way, but rather in one of the best ways possible.
When I read the summary for K.L. Loveley’s Love, Secrets and Absolution, my mind immediately filled with questions. I’m willing to bet those same questions will at least cross your mind once you give it a look through–all but one, that is.
What question won’t cross your mind? Well, I wanted to know what the cover looked like, because it hadn’t been released yet. Today, I’m happy to help reveal it.
