Top Ten Tuesday (201) : Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017

Posted December 12, 2017 by Lori in Books, Top Ten Tuesdays / 5 Comments Tags: ,


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.

  1. The Gentleman’s Guide was one of my favorite books too! I loved the diversity and how fun the plot was. Mackenzi Lee’s humor is definitely of my style, and I found Monty to be absolutely hilarious. He was my favorite character, actually. I am so glad there will be a spin-off following Felicity. I could not bear the thought that this would be it! I NEED MORE. Also, next time, I’m going to try the audiobook if it’s narrated by the same person when they release future books. I hope so. <3

    The Hate U Give is one of the books I should have read this year but still haven't. However, I haven't heard a single soul not LOVING it, and I have no doubt that I should read it and enjoy as well. I love the spotlight it's been getting, and all of the themes it touches upon interest me a lot. I shouldn't postpone it anymore! IT IS GETTING DONE! Your list is perfect!!
