Top Ten Favorite Books Of 2017 (So Far)
This list turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it would be. I’ve read a lot less this year than I have in previous years, and what I have read…I’ve been less than enthused. These books are definitely the stand-outs, and I had no problem picking a list of 10 favorites! All links go to Goodreads!
- If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo. I really liked If I Was Your Girl. Amanda is an amazing character, and it was hard to stop reading it.
- Wild by Cheryl Strayed. I’m not going to lie, part of why I read this book was because it was mentioned on the Gilmore Girls revival. I really liked seeing the journey she took, and how much hiking changed her.
- The Underground Railroad by Coulson Whitehead. Don’t let the Oprah sticker fool you, this book is really good! You felt what it was like to be a runaway slave, and how terrifying the Underground Railroad really was.
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This is easily my favorite book I’ve read all year. I thought it was completely amazing, and if you pick up one book this year, this is one I’d recommend in a heartbeat.
- The March Series by John Lewis. This is right up there with The Hate U Give- I’m having a hard time picking a favorite between the two. This series is one of my favorites because John Lewis shows how hard he- and countless others- fought so that everyone could be equal.
- A Court Of Wings And Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. I didn’t like this one the way I liked ACOTAR or ACOMAF, but it’s still one of my favorite books from this year because I liked seeing where things went.
- The Wrath And The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. I loved the audio, which I really recommend if you’re considering reading this book. I felt very immersed i the world, and loved the take on 1001 nights.
- Legion by Julie Kagawa. I was not expecting the book to start or end the way it did, and it’s my favorite book in this series so far. Which is interesting/funny because I wasn’t a big fan of the series at first.
- Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova. I thought Los Lagos was really vivid, and it had an Alice In Wonderland feel to it, which I really liked. The magic and traditions really made the book come to life.
- City Of Saints And Thieves by Natalie Anderson. One of my favorite things about this book is how detailed and well-researched it seemed. The author worked with refugees, and that really came through. I also liked the rules of being a thief that we saw scattered throughout the book.
