Autumn (autumnmemory80) | 374 comments I know it is just now about to be October, but what has been your favorite book so far of 2017? Once it gets to be the last day of the year, be sure to update and include your favorite book for all of 2017. I understand if it has to be a couple, I have a hard time deciding too.

Autumn (autumnmemory80) | 374 comments I think so far my favorite(s) has been I Know a Secret by Tess Gerritsen and I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh. I love them both for different reasons.

Melissa (melissal88) | 21 comments The Dry by Jane Harper. Beautifully written. The setting is as much a character as Aaron Faulk (the main character). You really felt like you are in Australia during a drought. And the mystery is great too!

I've had a few 5 star reads this year. Below are those that fit the Mystery genre

- The League of Frightened Men by Rex Stout
- The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle
- Cop Hater by Ed McBain
- Kittyhawk Down by Garry Disher

Looking forward to seeing my final top ten mysteries at the end of the year.

Melissa, have you read Jane Harper's second novel, Force of Nature (Aaron Falk #2)? In my opinion it is every bit as good as The Dry.

Leslie (lesl) | 7 comments Into the Light by Aleatha Romig
Glass Houses by Louise Penny

Louise Penny's Armand Gamache mystery series is one of my faves and her latest did not disappoint. I also discovered Simone St. James this year and have really enjoyed her take on supernatural mysteries set around WWI.
