I’ve done it, friends! It took me a eleven days and two sleepless nights, but I read my first book of 2017! Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo took me by surprise (in both a good and a bad way), but in the end it holds the place of “favorite book of the year.” (ha. ha. get it? it’s the only book I’ve read this year? ha)
