There are only a few days until 2018, which means I need to share my favourite books of 2017! I have read 53 books in 2017 and five of those have become new favourites.
5. Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
Moxie was all about feminism and standing up to injustices. It had a great message and is a very good book for younger people to read. The sneaky aspect to the plot was one part I really enjoyed reading about, and I especially loved the ending.
4. I See You by Clare McKintosh
I surprisingly didn’t read many thrillers that I enjoyed this year. This one was my favourite because it had the most interesting twist and really good writing. The author’s other novel, I Let You Go, is supposed to be better than this one, so I hope that I’ll get around to it in 2018.
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I had known about The Book Thief for so long and had heard so many amazing things about it. I was thrilled to have enjoyed it as much as many other readers did. The story is heartwarming and tearjerking and had so many fantastic characters. The ending was not what I was expecting and it gave me such an emotional feeling after reading it.
2. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
The Hate U Give was an undeniably amazing read. It has a brave protagonist and a message that really hits you throughout the book. I loved it even more when I learned more about the reasoning behind it when I was lucky enough to see Angie Thomas speak mid-year.
1. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
My number one favourite book of 2017 was The Hating Game! I loved reading it and breezed my way through it. The relationship between Lucy and Josh was everything that I want in a book. I’m really looking forward to the author’s next release!
I’m happy that my top reads are all varying in genres. There is two young adult, one contemporary romance, one historical, and one thriller. These are all my favourite genres, except for historical, which is a genre I hardly ever read.
