Books I’ve Love in 2017…So Far
Today, I thought I would share some of my favourite reads of 2017 so far. We may already be in May, but I’ve read over 90 books already and cannot wait to read more. There have been some ups and some downs, that is for sure. However, today is all about those up’s.
I’ve read a range of books already this year from contemporary to fantasy, and young adult to new adult. So there is a range of books on this list and I cannot wait to share, so let’s go! These are in no particular order.
Frostblood by Elly Blake: This was the first book that I read this year and I just feel it in love. Frostblood explores the notion of family, finding out who you are, where you belong and to fight for what you believe. I loved the romance and the world. This debut author has done an excellent job and I cannot wait to see what comes from her next | Full Review
This Beats Perfect by Rebecca Denton: I was so surprised with This Beats Perfect. It was fun, addicting and put a smile on my face. It explores the notions of finding yourself, loving what you do and finding those who will stand by you. It’s about family, friendship and those you love | Full Review
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: It was addicting. It explores the notion of family, friendship and finding out who you are. With a world that is built with layer upon layer, you will be begging to find out more. With its beautiful writing and characters that will take you by storm, it’s an adventure you want to be on. Strange the Dreamer is poignant, heart-stopping and you will not be able to put it down | Full Review
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: iIf I could give this more stars I would. The Hate U Give is a brilliant and powerful story. It’s heartbreaking, poignant and so so true. It’s a book that everyone should read, and understand. The Hate U Give explores family, friendship and what is right. I wanted to cry, scream and hurt. So I beg you please pick up this book, read it, take it in and understand | Full Review
Him/Us by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy: I have talked about this duology quite a lot recently, but it’s because I enjoyed both of these books just so much. It’s the first NA that I have read that had LGBTIQ+ themes, and it just made me smile so much.
A Darker Shade of Magic/A Gathering of Shadows by V.E Schwab: I had been meaning to read this book for quite some time and I am so glad that I picked it up. It’s everything that I love in a fantasy book. I feel in love with the world, the characters and everything in between.
The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig: This was a fantastic read. I was taken from the first page and didn’t want to stop there. It explores family and love. It’s about coming of age and discovering who you are. Nevertheless, with its poignant writing and characters that are just fabulous, you want to be on their journey.
Avenged by Amy Tintera: It kept me on the edge of my seat and I didn’t know what was going to happen next. Avenged explores the notion of family, friends, and love. It’s about standing up for what you believe in and what you think is the right thing to do. I love the fierceness, the weakness, the plot.
And that is it for the first half or so of 2017! Wow, what a list already, I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings with some of my most anticipated reads coming out in the next couple of months.
Nevertheless, what have been some highlights for you already in 2017? What are some books that you are looking forward to reading?
