Best Books I've Read In 2017 So Far

Tuesday, June 27, 2017


I am linking up today at The Broke and the Bookish's link up "Top Ten Tuesday".  They have a different topic every week and it's a lot of fun to meet some new bloggers and find a bunch of new books to add to my list!  This week's topic is: Best Books I've Read In 2017 So Far.

Oh man, this was hard!  I kept adding and taking away books. lol!  I tried to only include books that I read that were released in 2017, but I loved a couple earlier books too much to not include them. I put a * in front of any books that were published before 2017.

Surrender the Dark by Tibby Armstrong
* Cinder * Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
* Daring Fate by Megan Erickson


Have you read any of these?  What is your favorite read so far this year?

    1. I LOVED Cinder and Scarlet. I still haven't gotten around to Cress and Winter yet but I own them both so hopefully I can read them in the next couple months. I hope you love Geekerella when you get around to reading it. I love it was really cute...even if it had it's cheesy moments. lol Thanks, Grace!

  2. I read Cinder back when it was released and thought it was great! I still need to read the rest of the book in the series though. I really like the cover for the Thing About Love. I'll have to check it out.

  4. I haven't read any of these, sorry! I've read a lot of great books this year so I know what you mean about being tough to choose! My favourites are between the Extinction Horizon zombie-ish series of the first two Game of Thrones novels. Can't pick!

    1. I have been loving the Cyberlove series by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell. There has only been one book in the series so far that I didn't absolutely love. Mature Content was definitely my favorite so far. Flame in the Mist was a lot of fun. I love a kickass heroine

  10. I wasn't keen on Cinder when I read it last year, but I've been told Scarlet is better so I'm planning on reading it this year. I bought Song of The Current recently and can't wait to read it, I've heard such good things. I tried Flame In The Mist but I had to DNF it, it wasn't for me.

    1. I did end up liking Scarlet a bit more than Cinder. I've heard Cress is even better so I'm looking forward to that one. I enjoyed Song of the Current much more than I thought I was going to. I was dragging my feet with picking it up but when I finally did, I couldn't put it down. Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy Flame in the Mist!
