Favourite Books of 2017!

Hi everyone!

I’m back today with my favourite books of 2017! I can’t believe I never actually got around to making this post – especially when doing Blogmas but apparently I haven’t yet so here it is!

I read a total of 125 books in 2017 so choosing just ten (I wanted to narrow them down so this post wasn’t 9000 pages long!), was very difficult! But here we go! In no order, here are my favourite books I read in 2017!

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

I absolutely loved this book – which is no surprise to anyone! It was so amazing, and the action never stopped. Was I okay after it? NOPE. Am I okay now? NOPE.

Here’s my review: Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff // Pre-Release ARC Review.


Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

I was apprehensive about this book because some of John Green’s book I’ve not really loved (apart from TFIOS!), but wow. This blew me away and I still can’t get over it. It was definitely the most beautifully written book on mental health I’ve read last year. So many amazing quotes!

Here’s my review: Blogmas Day 5: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green // Review.

Illuminae-files
Illuminae & Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

THIS SERIES. I don’t even know what to say other than I LOVE THIS SERIES, and I can’t believe it took so long for me to get to!

Letters to Eloise by Emily Williams

This was so beautifully written, and made me cry SO much. Emily is lovely, and this was genuinely one of the best debuts I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading!

My review is here: Letters to Eloise by Emily Williams // Review.



Reflections by Briana Morgan

This was so beautiful and powerful. I didn’t expect for it to have such an effect on me, but it really was so brilliant. I am still in awe of it.

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I AM SO SHOCKED AT HOW GOOD THIS WAS. I read it for a book club and it was amazing, and light hearted and emotional and I am still not okay!

Review: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee // Review



Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

THAT ENDING LEFT ME SHOOK FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR SO OF COURSE THIS WOULD BE ON HERE! I CAN’T EVEN COPE THIS DESERVES ALL THE CAPITALS.

Review: Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough // Review

 



Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

A book about Chaol? SIGN ME UP. A book written this brilliantly? My new favourite of the series for definite! Sarah outdid herself!

Review: Blogmas Day 10: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas // Review



Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Oh my god this book. I knew it would be good, but had no idea HOW good, and the rep of mental health was done brilliantly. There isn’t a bad thing I can say about it and I want to read it forever!

Review: Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia // Review



Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend

THE BEST MIDDLE GRADE BOOK EVER! Fun, exciting and so so well written. I absolutely adore this book. THE COVER!
