Top Ten Tuesday is hosted each week by The Broke and The Bookish and allows us to combine our love of books with our love of lists. This week’s topic is: Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017.
I don’t know what happened this year, guys, but I was completely underwhelmed by the fantasy and sci-fi options. I love contemporaries and romances, so it’s not a surprise to have some on my top end of the year list, but it is surprising that I have NO fantasy or sci-fis because I absolutely love those genres as well. I don’t know if I missed the really great ones or if I just wasn’t in the mood for them this year but I’m so sad that I don’t have any on my list this year. So make sure you share your favorite fantasy books from this year, either adult or young adult, in the comments in case I missed some of the great ones! But even without any real fantasy books on this year’s list, I read some really amazing books. I loved these and I would definitely recommend them to fans of YA romances! I’ve been recommending The Hate U Give to EVERYONE and Eliza and Her Monsters to anyone who deals with anxiety and Geekerella to anyone in a fandom. But I’ve really loved all of these and I hope you guys will give them a try if they sound interesting to you.
Honorable Mentions: Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman, Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao, Among the Red Stars by Gwen C. Katz, Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo, When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandya Menon, How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake, The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli, and The Naturals series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
