Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s time to take a look back at 2017 and talk about my favorite reads of the year. I started off 2017 with a lot of reading and quite quickly got ahead of my reading goals for the year. Until my major reading slump happened and I barely read anything for months… But even with that slump, I luckily still managed to read quite a few amazing books! (And now that my reading slump seems to be over, I’m hoping to still read quite a few more before the year is over 😉 )
So without further ado, here are my favorite books that I read in 2017, in no particular order (note: these are not necessarily released in 2017. I just READ them this year):
Well, you all already knew this was coming, so I might as well just start with this series right? It has definitely been my most joyous find of the year and I am so, so happy I got to fall in love with this wonderful world filled with flirty kitsunes and mysterious yokai.
My reviews for Red Winter | Dark Tempest | Immortal Fire
Adam Silvera makes me cry for weeks and I love him for it. History Is All You Left me was no exception. My review for History Is All You Left Me
Two Adam Silvera books on one list? Guess it’s obvious I adore his writing! They Both Die At The End is possibly my favorite Silvera book to date. My review for They Both Die At The End
Romantic ace rep. Glorious, wonderful, well-written romantic ace rep <3
My review for Tash Hearts Tolstoy
This book made me giggle and swoon. Monty, Percy and Felicity are one of those trios you just must meet, Monty is the most hilarious, flawed but oh so lovable main character you’ll ever meet and the shipping, oh the shipping… My review for The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue
This book made me smile uncontrollably. It’s the sweetest little ode to fandom nerds and filled with positive rep and much-need messages. My review for Queens of Geek
I know, everybody told me this was AMAZING but I just had to procrastinate and procrastinate, only to give in and finally read it to tell everybody… YOU WERE RIGHT THIS WAS AMAZING!
My review for Illuminae
I adore the Shades of Magic series, and this finale was quite frankly one of the best, if not THE BEST finale I have ever read. If the concept of perfection could be written into a book, this series would be the result. I still miss this world and these characters so much!
My review for A Conjuring of Light
If you love Greek mythology, this retelling of the life of Achilles and his relationship with Patroclus is a must! I found it was so well-written and filled with so much emotion and loved every page. My review for the Song of Achilles
Gorgeous and poetic and inspiring and emotional. Amazing writing, intriguing and flawed characters, family dynamics, romance, and well… ALL THE FEELS.
My review for I’ll Give You The Sun
