Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing my favorite books of 2017! I read 236 books in 2017. I may have read more after this comes out but for now that’s my number. Now I usually don’t a list because I never want to list but now I always have so many books and I thought I would do a list so that I could be more organized. This was so hard to make because I’d loved all these books. And I like doing Top 10 lists with you couldn’t tell. I have done a list for 2015 and a list for 2016 so you check those out. Please I want attention…… Okay! Let’s began!
Kill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky
This book was weirdly brilliant and funny and clever and I had such a good time reading this book. I couldn’t stop talking about this book a long time because it was so interestingly weird. I had never want to read this book before because the title just seemed so silly but hell this book was so good and I wished I picked it up sooner!
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
Whoa. I went into this book expecting another Colleen Hoover book but I got so much more then that. This is probably my favorite book by her. I was not expecting to go the way it did and it was so real and beautifully written and I loved this book. Colleen Hoover’s to me have always been these romance books with intense love stories but I thought this book was going to be like that but the more we got into it, it stopped being a another romance story and it became it’s own story. Guys read this book because it’s so amazing and you’ll cry.
#10 The Sun is Also A Star By Nicola Yoon
I read this book because I had just read Everything, Everything and I enjoyed that book. I had been hearing this about this book for a while so I thought I would pick it up and I read it on the way back from Sectionals and it was just so amazing and wonderful and oh my god it is so great. If you didn’t know this already but I’m not the biggest romance fan. I just find most romance books cliche and unrealistic and the same thing seems to happen in every book. But every once and I found a romance book that is so beautiful and wonderful because it is everything that I want! And this was that book! I don’t know what I can say about this book that hasn’t been said. This book is amazing and the love story is amazing. It was just such a great book.
#9 The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
I have a review for this book so check that out here. I started this book because my sister was watching the show and I was like shit this show is so intense. And so is this book like the title of my book review is ‘This book scared the shit out of me’ and that’s true. Like I’m so scared of this book really happening. Never has a dystopian book scared me and made me love a dystopian novel so much. It’s so good! The show is also really amazing so I recommend reading the book and then watch the show. The show is pretty accurate but it can be out of order with somethings. Whatever this book is amazing and it’s so good that it will scare you about where society could go. 🙂
#8 History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
Dude this book is hella sad and hella amazing and this is the whitest sentences I’ve ever said. I did a review for this book and I read it on Valentine’s day because books are the only love I have and if you want to read the review you can it read here. This book break my heart it was so good. I mean More Happy Than Not was also really sad but I didn’t have the same affects on me that this book. I mean I still loved it and you should also read that book. Whenever I finished one of Adam’s book I don’t really cry I just do this thing where I have so many emotions that I just start hyperventilating. thing is there I have read both of Adam’s books in public which has caused me to get a couple weird looks. Every time I thought I knew what was going happen the book was like fuck you! guess again! enjoy crying! If you enjoy LGBT+ books with mental heath then you’ll love this book!
#7 Stoker & Holmes by Colleen Gleason
I have a review for the first three books here and I have a review for book four here so check those out and you can read about how much I love those books. I blew through the first three fast and I waited for Carnelian crow to come and I got it and I read it and it destroyed my life and now we only have one more book coming out and I’m scared and excited for what gonna happen. Basically if #giveevalinelove2018 doesn’t happen I will be upset because she deserves to be happy. She doesn’t even need a lover just given her someone that respects and treats her the way she needs to be treated. Also Mina needs to be happy and if she is not then I’ll be very upset.
#6 Dear Martin
I don’t know if the book is in the right spot. I loved this book it was amazing and I cried reading it because it was so amazing but I loved all these another books. They are all amazing and this book is amazing so should it be higher on this list? I don’t know. This book is great though. I got an of it at ALA and I read it when I got home and upon finishing it I loved it. I’d cry because this book is amazing and so wonderfully written and I loved it. Maybe it needs to be higher. I don’t know! READ THIS BOOK! You’ll love it and cry and love it because it’s amazing.
#5 Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty
I have three reviews for this book which you can read here, here, and here and you can learn how much I love these books. Book three just came out last month and it broke me. I was so sad but again I saw it coming as we know who Sherlock and James Moriarty are and we know that they are enemies and seeing their relationship come together and then fall apart made me cry. I feel like this list is just if you made me cry then you get on this list……… wow.
#4 Lord of Shadows
Yeah this book was one that I was waiting a long time for and oh my god was it worth because I had so many opinions on it that I wrote a three thousands word review on it which you can read here if you want to read that. Um…. this book gave me so much anxiety and it was worth because it is amazing and I need Queen of Air and Darkness now because I need to know what happens next!
#3 Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
My review for this book isn’t out yet but basically I love this book and it might be my new favorite John Green book. I loved the way it was written and I loved the characters and the story and it’s so amazing and wonderful and you should read it if you haven’t!
#2 The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
If you don’t know what The Hate U Give is then have YOU BEEN LIVING AROUND A ROCK THIS WHOLE YEAR? SERiously! This book was literally number one on the New York Best Seller List for I think more than 300 weeks because it’s that amazing. If you haven’t read this book then you are missing out because it’s amazing and great and the story is wonderful and it deals with a topic that is happening in the real world and it doesn’t try and play it off as something that it’s not and there is a movie coming out and if you to go to see it without reading this book then that is a big mistake because you will miss out on experiencing one of the best books ever. I like the rest of the world highly recommend this book and it is one of the best thing out 2017 and if you don’t agree then kindly fuck off.
#1 I Hate Everyone but You by Gaby Dunn and Allison Raskin
I read this book twice this year that’s how much I love it. I got this book at ALA and started reading it the day I got it and I couldn’t stop reading it. I read it at dinner and my mom got upset because she wanted me to be social but this book was too good to stop reading. I really connected with this book because it deals with mental illness and coming out and sexuality which are two major things that I had to deal with this year and I also loved how beautiful this book deals with it. Like most funny books that this deal with mental illness and sexuality or mainly just sad books with funny lines which I do like those books but I found it great that this book was funny with some heartfelt moments. I loved the friendship in the book and all the things they go there. If I’m being honest I cried at some parts because it hit my in the feels. I love at one point there is a reference to their channel. This book is amazing and I highly recommend it.
