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!

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor // Review


Title: Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

Rating: ★★★★

Release: 8th April 2014

Synopsis: Two worlds are poised on the brink of a vicious war. By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera’s rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her.
When the brutal angel emperor brings his army to the human world, Karou and Akiva are finally reunited–not in love, but in tentative alliance against their common enemy. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves. But with even bigger threats on the horizon, are Karou and Akiva strong enough to stand among the gods and monsters?

Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor // Review

Title: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Rating: ★★★★★

Release: 6th November 2012

Synopsis: Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living – one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers’ arms to take their turn in the killing and dying.

Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon’s secret temple and dreamed of a world that was like a jewel-box without a jewel – a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness. This was not that world.

Review:

A thrilling sequel to a completely original and stand out trilogy!

I dived straight into this after finishing the first book, Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I definitely think takes the cake for being my favourite of the three books, because it was OUTSTANDING!

Once again Laini Taylor completely blew me away with her writing style. Her descriptions are so vivid it transports you straight into the book, and feels as if her writing is just projected right off the page. Not only did her writing style excel within this book, but her character development was brilliant.

I loved how we could see the wear and tear on Karou after the events of the previous book. It added so much realism to the story, which I always feel is important for novels, especially Young Adult Fantasy.

The relationship with Akiva was also portrayed with such tension, and emotion, I was thriving for their scenes together! There are a few parts I can’t mention that I loved without spoiling, but let me tell you Laini is so deceptive with the story I couldn’t read the book quick enough.

The plot is so well thought out and clear that you can tell Laini knew exactly where she was going with the story and I loved the change of direction from the first book.

Emotional, thrilling and just outright brilliant, this is the sequel that the world needed. If you think Daughter of Smoke and Bone was good – just you wait!

You can buy Days of Blood and Starlight on Amazon UK here!
