2017 RITA Nominees I’ve Read

dukeofsinSo Ana Coqui over at Immersed in Books posted a list of the number of RITA nominated books that she has read, and then Willaful followed suit over at A Willful Woman . . . I knew I had read 10 of them and decided that this might be fun to do. So without further ado, these are the books nominated for 2017 RITAs that I have read. I also decided to add the number of books that I bought as a result of the nominations (5).

 

Best First Book (0/7 read) (1/7 bought)

 

  • I did buy Cheryl Etchinson’s Once and For All after the RITA nominees were announced because it intrigues me.
