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):

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

In honor of Thanksgiving week in the US, today is all about being thankful. More specifically, what books we are thankful for.

Now, I’m thankful for a lot of books. For lots of reasons. So narrowing this down was… tough. I decided to split it into categories as to why I am thankful for a book in particular, which came a little easier for me. But I would just like to note that some of these books definitely fit into more than one categorie. And I am probably forgetting a lot of books as well. But anyway, here it goes!

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Since we’re about halfway through 2017, it’s a good time to reflect already on the past half year. And since I’m me and I also love to obsess, let’s reflect on what I obsessed most about this year. In terms of books. Because I obsess a lot and well, I need to limit it somehow or else we’ll be here a while.

So come and obsess with me about the ten best books I’ve read in 2017 (so far)!

Hi and welcome to my first wrap up of 2017!

January has been pretty busy reading and blogging wise, so I hope you’re ready for a looong post 🙂 I have read 12 books, 3 of which were re-reads and I think that’s been one of my best reading months EVER, so yay for me! I entered my first readathon of the year and actually did okay. I’ve slowly but surely been discovering some new music. AND I’ve fallen in love with some new tv and movies. So let’s get into it!

What it’s about:

A brilliant, luminous story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, David Levithan, and Rainbow Rowell

Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else—an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah’s story to tell. The later years are Jude’s. What the twins don’t realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.

This radiant novel from the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.
