Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is always one of my favourites to think on and also one of the most difficult lists to create. What were my favourite books that I read in 2017? I read a lot – I’m at 85 books right now and still going. Hopefully, I’ll finish a few more before December is over. To see what I’ve read this year, head over to my Goodreads Challenge shelf.
But, my favourite books that I read this year – meaning the ones that I enjoyed the most or that stuck with me are:
- The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
- When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
- Mighty Jack by Ben Hatke
- The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
- Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
- Geekerella by Ashley Poston
- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
- The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
- Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel by Mariah Marsden
Okay, seriously, this was so so so difficult.
There are so many more books that I could add to this list. Lumberjanes, Six of Crows, Wayfarer, Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Jane (graphic novel adaptation of Jane Eyre)…. I read a lot of amazing books this year. Thank you authors, publishers, bloggers, friends, my library, for all the amazing reads and recommendations.
This was a good reading year for me.
Apparently, I read a TON of YA. And the fact that eight of these are contemporary is a big deal for me. I haven’t read this much contemporary in a long time. I’m excited to reread some of these in the next while too. That’s how good these are.
Note: these books are not listed in any particular order. I enjoyed them all very much and putting them in a ranking is just too difficult for my brain and my heart to handle.
