I’ve decided to call this post that way and not “best books of 2017” or something because I couldn’t read all the books I wanted to and I know there are many books that I would have included here if I had had time/money to read them. So I’m only talking here about the books I read this year, and which were my favourites 🙂
Some could appear in several categories and sometimes it is hard to dissociate SF and Fantasy so please don’t yell at me if I put a book in one category and you feel it should be in another haha!
I just COULDN’T decide only 10 so here are a few Top 5 in no particular order! ❤
THE VERY BESTS:
Failure to Communicate (Xandri Corelel #1), by Kaia Sønderby
The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth, #1), by N.K. Jemisin
TOP 5 CUTE:
I really needed some fluff and cuteness this year, especially seeing how hard 2017 has been at times. So here are my favourite cute books I read this year!
Knit One, Girl Two, by Shira Glassman (goodreads)
TOP 5 FEELS:
Okay so on a variation of the “cute” theme, here are books that made me have feel all the feelings!
Radio Silence, by Alice Oseman (goodreads)
TOP 5 SF:
I know some of these could be fantasy also but anyway, I love them!
It Devours! (Welcome to Night Vale #2), by Joseph Fink (goodreads)
I read more fantasy books than SF this year so it was even harder to make choices! Here are the ones that I’m 100% I will re-read several times in my life.
TOP 5 Y.A.:
Young Adult novels are a range of books I don’t read often but since I read so many great ones this year, here are my favourites!
The Hate U Give, by Angie Thomas (goodreads)
The Abyss Surrounds Us (The Abyss Surrounds Us, #1), by Emily Skrutskie (goodreads)
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli (goodreads)
Because CHOOSING IS HARD and I don’t want to leave some behind 😥 Here are some other amazing books I read this year.
Lab Girl by Hope Jahren (goodreads)
A Dragon of a Different Color (Heartstrikers, #4), by Rachel Aaron (goodreads)
