Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is the Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017.
Having read over 120 books this year, it’s hard to narrow it down to my ten favorite books. But after a lot of consideration, I was able to decide on ten…well, eleven, but it was the best that I could do. These are listed in no particular order.
- Erased by Kei Sanbe. This is for the first three volumes of the series, as they are all fantastic. I stumbled upon this series randomly over the summer and I’m so glad I did. The story is so rich and the characters are wonderful.
- Sacred Seas by Karen Amanda Hooper. The long awaited sequel to The Sea Monster Memoirs was just what I needed. This book has everything that a series ending should. Highly recommend.
- Your Name: Another Side: Earthbound by Arata Kanoh. I absolutely love Your Name, so getting to see an extra side to this story was great.
- Orange by Ichigo Takano. This was another series I randomly stumbled upon this year and oh boy was it great. I already plan to reread it next year because I want to enjoy the story again.
- Binti by Nnedi Okorafor. While very short, as novella’s tend to go, there is so much depth of story within these pages that it makes this a truly wonderful book.
- A Bride’s Story by Kaoru Mori. The imagery alone in this series makes it well worth reading, but the stories within each volume are also highly enjoyable.
- Cowboy Up! by Mike Flanagan. I love a good western, but I especially love them when they also involve rodeos. This book was fantastic as it made me feel like I was actually sitting watching rodeos happen.
- Happiness, Like Water by Chinelo Okparanta. A short story collection that has such tragically beautiful stories that I already want more.
- A Silent Voice by Yoshitoki Oima. I never thought I would so thoroughly enjoy a story about bullying, but this series was great.
- Saga by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples. This series is strange yet fantastic. Honestly, it’s not at all what I expected based upon the covers and everyone’s ravings, but I’m loving it so far.
- Dark Disciple by Christie Golden. This book helps to fill in some gaps from The Clone Wars series and I really enjoyed reading it. Anything that involves Asajj is bound to be entertaining.
So there you have it, my favorite books of 2017. There were quite a few others that I wanted to add to this list, since I read so many great books this year, but to keep it manageable I restricted it to eleven. What are some of your favorite books of 2017.
