Favourite Books in 2017

Hello, and happy new year everybody, I hope you had an amazing time and are staying to those new year resolutions that you made. If you made any? But today is all about looking back on the books I read last year and seeing which ones are my favourite.

  1. Geekerella by Ashley Poston
  • If you have been reading my posts you would know that this book comes up often in them and that is because this book is fantastic, and I loved reading it. Sometimes you need a book that has a happy ending because not all of them do.

  1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Mass
  • When I say this, I mean the whole series because I read them all in rapid time straight after the other because they were just that captivating. There are multiple plot twists throughout the series that kept me on my toes all the time which was refreshing.

  1. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
  • This book is a masterpiece, the way Cassandra Clare wove the famous poem Annabel Lee into it was just so fantastic and creative. I loved reading this book, and the whole drama between Julian Blackthorn and Emma Carstairs that was exhilarating.

  1. Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
  • Of course, this had to be in it, I just finished reading it before 2018 and I was in shock of the ending. You would know what I’m talking about if you have read it, I was so sad and upset about what happened it was incredibly written, and I loved reading every single word.

  1. Trials of Apollo – the Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan
  • Doesn’t everyone who has ever loved Percy Jackson love this series because of LEO. Like he is one of my favourite characters from the seven. And the fact that in the beginning, they thought he was dead had me so sad. But I have loved journeying through there adventures together (Leo and Calypso) and I can’t wait for book three to come out this year in Autumn (or Spring- wherever you are).

  1. Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor
  • I read this book at the very beginning of the year and it was awesome like every other book Rick Riordan has published. this is the second in this series and there is another one called Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead which I just finished a few days ago so maybe expect a book review.

  1. A Monsters Call by Patrick Ness
  • This book is incredible, it deals with a young boy whose mother has cancer and it isn’t going well. But then the monster walks with tales but not tales of good and bad. He is forced to face his deepest fear one he would like to always keep secret. This is such a great topic to write on because people around the world deal with cancer and illness and their families are left to help and support them because they love them. But in this book, there are emotions that would be very relatable to anyone who has ever dealt with such things and I find it that these stories always are great ones.

  1. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowel
  • This book is hard to get into but once you have completed about 100 or so you just can’t stop reading it. But the one thing that really put this book on my favourites list was that even in the end it still leaves you hanging. With three simple words that were not given to us. If you have read it, you would understand what I mean about three simple words.

  1. Hunted by Meagan Spooner
  • This book is a retelling of the wonderful Beauty and the Beast but in a unique way. There are similarities but also stark differences that I really liked. The main character goes against everything society says which was amazing because books have societies within them set up with rules and I always enjoy a little rule breaking. What’s not to love about them
  1. Rosebush by Michele Jaffe
  • “Sometimes the truth is a very thorny thing” – a murder mystery book where the main character is seen trying to commit suicide, but she knows she would never do that she knows a person is out to get her and kill her. This book has plot twists running through it, I loved reading this book because of the whole clues and her trying to figure out who is going to or is trying to kill her.

Overall any book on this list I highly recommend, and hope every one of you has an amazing day today or whenever you read this.
