Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is going to be big, with your top ten favourite books of 2017 being the topic. Note: these aren’t necessarily books that were published in 2017, they’re merely great books that I read this year.
- See You in the Cosmos, Jack Cheng. A beautifully told story about a boy with a mishap family who tries to launch his iPod-carrying rocket into space.
- A Semi Definitive List of Worst Nightmares, Krystal Sutherland. I loved this story’s creative storyline and even more creative characters. The ending left me a little confused but overall a great read.
- The Loneliest Girl in the Universe, Lauren James. A great book for so many reasons. At a glance it seems like your typical YA romance (crossed with the not so typical idea that the girl lives in outer space). Trust me, it’s taking all of my self control to not just spoil the entire novel. A must read.
- Book Thief, Markus Zuzak. One of those inspirational books that everyone should pick up sometime in their life.
- Finding Audrey, Sophie Kinsella. This book was both funny and moving in a way that I’m still trying to grasp. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone.
- Flawed (& Perfect, the 2nd book), Cecelia Ahern. Flawed was a great YA dystopian novel which really made me think about society’s expectations. Perfect, the sequel, was released this year and was equally gripping.
- Geek Girl Finale; Forever Geek, Holly Smale. The perfect finale to a great series, Forever Geek was certainly the ending I had hoped for. Plus, it was set in Australia which just added to the fun.
- Not if I See You First, Eric Lindstrom. A humorously honest book about a girl who is blind. While the novel covers some sadder topics, it remains easy to read due to its wit and humour. I nearly called it eye opening but then realised that that would just be bad.
- Heartless, Marissa Meyer. This is the first and only book of Marissa Meyer’s that I’ve read. I really enjoyed this take on the classic tale of Alice in Wonderland.
- More Than This, Patrick Ness. This was a book that really made me think. While it was rather long and to be honest, just a little confusing, I still thoroughly enjoyed it.
