Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books of 2017

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I read quite a few books that I loved this year, so narrowing it down to ten was difficult. Here's what I've come up with:

1a. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
1b. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo: This duology is one of the best that I've read in a really long time. The characters were complex and the world was rich and vibrant. I loved it so much, probably my favorite reads of the year!

2. Geekerella by Ashley Poston: I love a good fairytale retelling and this one delivered. It was everything I could ask for in a nerdy Cinderella. A comic-con, a cosplay, and an actor who may be more than his social persona.

3. Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller: I love a good pirate book, but I forgot how much I love them until I read this book. The sequel is coming out next year and I already have it preordered!

4. Stars Above by Marissa Meyer: I'd been putting this one off because I wanted to save this for a time when I needed new content from the Lunar Chronicles world. I read it at just the right time this year. I loved all these stories!

5. Paper Girls, Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan: This series keeps getting a weirder but I'm still really enjoying it! I can't wait to see what's next.

6. My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by Fredrik Backman: This is such a magical exploration of life through the eyes of a child. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

7. The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro: This is the sequel to A Study in Charlotte. I'm loving this series and I can't wait for the next book!

8. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: I really enjoyed this book, a fierce assassin ready to fight for freedom. I've heard mixed feelings about the rest of the series, but I'm just going to have to see for myself.

9. Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick: This is the best memoir I've read this year. She is incredibly funny and brutally honest. I listened to the audio book in one day.

10. The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy: This was such a good read. I came across this on a whim and thought I'd check it out for fall/Halloween season. The mystery and suspense wrapped up in a community who believes they've been cursed.

  1. Great list! I'm really pleased to see Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom on your list - I'm hoping to read Six of Crows over Christmas.
