Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
Today’s topic is “Best Books You’ve Read In 2017 So Far” but I’m going to change it up. Instead of the best books I read in 2017, I’m going to go over all the books I’ve read this year. Yes, ALL of them – I only read 9 (more like 8.5, one is a novella) books so this list isn’t going to be too long. Without further ado, here are the
nine 8.5 books I’ve read this year, from best to worse.
What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy
4.75 / 5 Stars
This one hasn’t been published yet (it comes out July 18th!) but I was lucky enough to snag an ARC and let me tell you, it is amazing. Action packed, funny, relatable. What more could you want from a book?
Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts
4.6 / 5 Stars
Like I mentioned in my review, Royal Bastards is one of the best high fantasy novels that I’ve read. It’s refreshing and a bit different with the depth of character development and growth it has.
The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
4.5 / 5 Stars
Okay so this was a reread but given how I still remember its plot and characters from when I last read it over a year ago, there’s no denying how much I love this book. There is nothing I like more than a conspiracy theory.
Mischief & Magnolia by Kristi Cook
4.3 / 5 Stars
This is the novella that makes my total books read count go up by only 0.5, but Goodreads doesn’t know that. I stand by what I said in my review – it’s a really cute follow up to Magnolia.
Proof of Lies by Diana Rodriguez Wallach
4 / 5 Stars
A mystery + fast paced plot + hot cute boy = recipe for a good book.
The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
3.8 / 5 Stars
The Long Game wasn’t as good as The Fixer, the first book in the series. It didn’t quite manage to draw me in completely and I was left with a lot of unanswered questions at the end. Which is sad because at this point of time, there will be no sequel.
By Your Side by Kasie West
3.7 / 5 Stars
It was cute and fluffy and I liked its portrayal of anxiety but I feel like it didn’t take advantage of its potential. The plot was a bit bland and it felt like all the problems just solved themselves.
RoseBlood by A.G. Howard
3.6 / 5 Stars
My review of RoseBlood pretty much sums up how I feel about it. It was an interesting take on Phantom of the Opera but it was missing something and I didn’t quite like how it ended. And then there’s the fact that some people think it’s a problematic book…
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
2.6 / 5 Stars
The Bone Witch is defintely my most disappointing read so far. You can read my review to find out all the reasons why I didn’t like it but in short, it was very wordy and slow paced.
