Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books You’ve Read In 2017 So Far

Hey guys!! It’s time once again for another Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by The Broke and Bookish. This will be their last Top Ten Tuesday until August 15th. I’m excited to do this because I’ve read 59 books so far. This should be fun!


I just want to know these are in no order. These are just some books that have stood out to me that I really liked. There are a couple more that I really did like but I wanted to keep it at 10.

megan-meadeMegan Meade’s Guide to the McGowan Boys by Kate Brian

Reason: This was a book I bought a while ago when it was on sale in the iBooks store. I finally decided I was going to read it. I have to say I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It ended up being a very enjoyable read.

 

the-truth-about-foreverThe Truth About Forever By Sarah Dessen

Reason: I loved this book so much. It was such a fun summer read. I didn’t end up reading it in the summer time but just everything about I really enjoyed. I was so upset I ended up taking so long to finally read this one. Hands down my favorite Sarah Dessen book.

 

You Will Know MeYou Will Know Me By Megan Abbott

Reason: I think part of me enjoying this book so much was because I read it in parts each day. I would have to wait for the next day to find out just a little bit more. It made the experience even more suspenseful because I was dying to know what was going to happen. I really ended up enjoying this one.

One of Us Is Lying

 

One of Us is Lying By Karen M. McManus

Reason: This is a book I was really looking forward to reading and did not disappoint. It shocked me and left me completely surprised by the ending. I could not get over it. I have to say this book was worth the wait.

 

The Darkest CornersThe Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas

Reason: This is a book I got from netgalley probably last year. I had sat on it for a while and this year finally decided to read it. I was so upset I waited so long for it. It was such a shocking read. I honestly didn’t see anything coming. I looked up the author right after and saw she was coming out with a new book this year. You know I can’t wait for that to come out.

 

The Girl You LostThe Girl You Lost By Kathryn Croft

Reason: This ended up being another really good thriller that I was not expecting. It was another book I had gotten from Netgalley but didn’t end up reading. I was so disappointed I waited so long because this was so good. It had me feeling on the edge at times and I really enjoyed that it messed with me a little. Not too many books do that to me so it was interesting to that a book could actually do that to me. I really need to read other books from this author.

 

Girl Out of WaterGirl Out of Water By Laura Silverman

Reason: This was a book I didn’t know too much about. I ended up really enjoying it a lot. It was a nice coming of age story. I have to say I was jealous of this characters life but I also felt I related to her in some ways. It ended up being a really fun read for me. I can’t wait to see what this author comes up with next.

 

A Life in PartsA Life in Parts By Bryan Cranston

Reason: Okay so if you’re really shocked this is here you really don’t know me at all lol. I am a huge Breaking Bad fan which means I am a huge supporter of Bryan Cranston. The moment I head he was writing a book I knew I needed that book. I did end up getting carried away and bought a signed copy but worth it. He ends up telling it all and I enjoyed that. He wasn’t afraid to hold back. I would highly recommend this if you’re a fan.

 

Pretty GirlsPretty Girls By Karin Slaughter

Reason: This book right here. Wow I was pretty shocked by everything in this book. It was so surprising and I gotta admit a bit graphic but I enjoyed that. I know a lot of people said it ended up being too graphic for them but I actually ended up enjoying it. It made the story shocking and a lot more intense. I can’t wait to read more from Karin.

 

Lady Mechanika Vol. 1Lady Mechanika, Vol. 1: The Mystery of the Mechanical Corpse By Joe Benitez

Reason: This is such an underrated comic. I found out about this from my boyfriend and it just so happened volume 1 and 2 were on Netgalley to read right away. The artwork ended up being incredible. Hands down the biggest draw. Don’t get me wrong the story was a lot of fun and I couldn’t wait to continue it but the artwork was so well done. I can’t wait for the next volume.

Top 5: Authors You Want to Read More From

It is time again from another Top 5 Wednesday! I’ve really been enjoying these. I really enjoy switching things up because I always write reviews.

The theme for this week is: Authors You Want to Read More From — Talk about some authors that you’ve only read one or a few books from, and you NEED to read more!


The Girl You LostKathryn Croft  – I recently just read The Girl You Lost. I really enjoyed the book. It started off very fast paced and kept me guessing all the way through. I felt very freaked out after reading this book and I’ve never felt that way after reading a book. I know Kathryn has a couple more books. This isn’t even her most popular book. I’m excited to read more of her books in the future.


You Will Know MeMegan Abbott – So I’ve read two Megan Abbott books. I didn’t like the first book I read, Dare Me, but I absolutely loved the second book, You Will Know Me. So I really would like to read more of Megan’s books to see if she is an author I actually enjoy or I just ended up getting lucky with the one book. I have been eying reading her other books and I’ve heard a lot of good things about them. I have been wanting to buy them from Book Outlet. So many I will give them a chance soon.


Silver Linings PlaybookMatthew Quick – I read Silver Linings Playbook a couple years and I really enjoyed it. I’ve been wanting to read more from Matthew for a while now. I actually own a couple of his other books but I just haven’t gotten around to reading them. I am super excited for Every Exquisite Thing. My one friend was raving about it to me. If anything that is going to be the next book I read by him.


Before I FallLauren Oliver – I read Before I Fall a couple years ago and absolutely loved it. Now that the movie came out I really wanna reread it and watch it when it comes to DVD. Since then I’ve been really looking forward to reading Lauren’s other books. I recently just picked one up at my Library’s book sale. I am super excited to read more from her.

242006Augusten Burroughs – I feel I have become close friends with Augusten just from reading his books. I don’t read too many autobiographies but his are some of my favorites. Each book shows you the different stages of his life. I’ve only read two books so far but I feel like I know so much about him from how detailed he is. I really can’t wait to read more of his books and continue to learn more about his life. If you haven’t read his books I would highly recommend. Augusten has a lot of interesting stories to tell and his books do not disappoint.
