Notes: This episode was recorded and assembled weeks ago and contains no references to current events. But we would like to take a moment here to affirm that Black Lives Matter.
Full list of titles referenced in this episode below this cut:
Tune in to our Bests & Worsts of 2017 episodes to hear us discuss these titles and read excerpts from our favorites and least favorites! Please note:
- We counted things that we read in 2017, regardless of publication year.
- We didn’t count anything that we read specifically for this podcast, so our worst books are aside from those.
- For that reason, we picked top 5 favorites and only 1 least favorite–we have this whole podcast to talk about bad books, so for these episodes we’re choosing to focus on the positive!
- Some of our “worsts” are really just “least best.” Listen to the podcast to hear more detail!
