Best Books of 2017

Best of 2017 GraphicFive categories. Almost 600 books. Not enough librarians!

Another year of binge reading has passed here at BCPL. While we didn’t get to every awesome new book that released this year, we still managed to devour most of the ones on our list! We’ve traveled through time and space; we’ve shivered at the darkest corners of humankind; and we’ve taken journeys into the successes and failures of characters who stayed with us long after we turned the last page.

The Best of the Year lists at BCPL are a celebration of the titles we’ve read and loved—and there sure were a lot of them. So get ready for your TBR list to get substantially longer!
