My Top Books of 2017: The 7 that rose above the rest!

Hey Bookworms! I hope you all are having a good and safe new years eve and for those who are in the future I hope 2018 is treating you well! Well I woke up, at 6 AM PDT, because my internal clock is so mean… And I turned on Youtube and was watching videos and ran across peoples top books of 2017. I was hesitating doing this because not a lot of books have made it to my top, but the ones that did really left a mark. I thought they deserved to be shared, so lets get started. By the way these are in no particular order.

 

My Top 7 of 2017

1.  Lost in a Book by Jennifer Donnelly

Lost in a Book

I really loved how this book used the love and death as personification as well as taking how readers to slip into books into an actual thing. This also gave the new movie such good back story it felt like actual back story. 5 out of 5 stars! Borrowed from the library on Audiobook and I definitely need my own copy!

2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Strange the Dreamer

I loved her previous series The Daughter of Smoke and Bone and happily this book did not let me down as a follow-up new series. This book was nearly pure poetry in it’s prose and dang does she know how to write a kiss!

3. We are Okay by Nina LaCour

We are Okay

This was another author that didn’t let me down with a follow-up novel. Her prose captured my heart. This was about breaking your heart and healing it again.

4. The Wolf Boy is Mine Vol 4 by  Youko Nogiri

The Wolf Boy is Mine Vol 4

This series restored my faith in manga and in love as cheesy as it sounds. The only drawback was it was too short. I am happy with the ending but I wanted more of these characters!

5. Mastiff  by Tamora Pierce

Mastiff

Another great end to a series and god what a plot twist that I didn’t see coming! I also see Tamora Pierce as a comfort author picking her up is a guaranteed good read.

6. Everland by Wendy Spinale

Everland

For anyone who knows me will know I am Peter Pan trash and I will read or watch any kind of retelling. This was not a let down at all I definitely loved the twist in the setting of this book. If you love Peter Pan, steampunk, and books in the period of WW2 this book is for you. I kinda hate that I didn’t find it sooner.

7.  American Gods by Neil Gaiman

American Gods

This book had it’s slow parts and lost me a few times which it why it was a 4 out of 5 stars, but Neil Gaiman’s prose and humor is the best thing. He has a way of making crazy things make sense. After reading the book maybe I can give the show another shot.

 

Well Bookworms those are the books that made their mark on my year. Did any of these make your list? Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts on them? What books were on your list?
