Brazos Best 2017

Yep, you got us: we love books here.

Throughout 2017, we picked a book each month that multiple staff members adored, and we labeled it “Brazos Best,” featuring it on the front counter for weeks. This was a way for us to give a quick taste of Brazos to new customers, and to make great recommendations to all our regulars. Missed our choices throughout the year? Don't worry a bit! These books represent what we think is our strength: our ability as an indie to push the best underrepresented or upcoming books we think you'll adore. Group them all together and you've got a snapshot of Brazos Bookstore in 2017.

Find the list of 2017 Brazos Best books and features below, and stop into the store this holiday season to pick up a box set of the whole collection. It makes a great gift for somebody who doesn’t know about your neighborhood bookstore, or is looking to delve deeper into the new lit we love!
