The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue book cover

As we near the end of the calendar year, the “Best of 2017” lists are rolling in. You’ll find links here to a number of this year’s lists, and you’ll find some familiar favorites appearing and reappearing on many of them. Both John Green’s bestseller Turtles All the Way Down and Angie Thomas’ bestseller The Hate U Give appear on a whopping eight of these lists. Philip Pullman’s new fantasy La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust appears on six lists, as does the lesser known historical adventure A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue (a personal favorite!) by debut author Mackenzi Lee. You’ll find plenty of ideas here for picking your next great read.
