I COULDN’T JUST PICK 17: MY FAVORITE BOOKS OF 2017

I originally wanted to make this post my top 17 of 2017, but when you read 80+ plus books in a year of FANTASTIC new releases and out of those 80+, the majority of them were pretty spectacular, it’s hard to choose just 17. I’m actually quite happy to have an abundance of favorites this year, considering that I only had 8 favorites last year. For the sake of your fingers not getting too cramped from scrolling through my post, I’m not going to describe each book below, but I’ll of course link to my review if I have one, and I decided to categorize my favorites because organization can be fun!!

 If I were to label 2017, one of the ways in which I would so would be to call 2017 the year of Hamilton part 2 (maybe part 3 in 2018??), with many thanks going to these two:

Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz

I, Eliza Hamilton by Susan Holloway Scott

2017 was the year where I finally read a Victoria/V.E. Schwab and I fell in love with these two:

 This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Vicious by V.E. Schwab

 AND DON’T EXPECT ME TO STOP SCREAMING ALL MY FEELS FOR VICIOUS BECAUSE VENEGEFUL IS APPROACHING!

 

I spent so much time at the beach and by the pool this summer, and I always had a book in tow. I think rereading these favorites now would transport me right back to summer:

 Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

 Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

 Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr

The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock

 The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord

 

 Some of my favorite and most-popular YA authors have come out with amazing books over the past two years, and I especially loved these ones:

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

 Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Warcross by Marie Lu 

 

No matter how busy my life at college is, I always find time to read and I read these favorites during the semester:

 We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

 Bonfire by Krysten Ritter

Meet Me at the Cupcake Café by Jenny Colgan

 

I admit that it has taken me a bit of time to come up with my 2017 favorites list because I’ve been going back and forth on what my #1 favorite book of the year has been. I’ve mostly debated between 3 books: Warcross, Little Fires Everywhere, and the winner, which is…

 Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

 I am just so happy with the conclusion to the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy and I’m so happy that Jenny Han wrote this book. I felt that I related to Lara Jean the most in Always and Forever, Lara Jean and I honestly just love everything about this series—here’s to a reread in 2018!
