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.

The theme is Summer Reads –The weather is heating up (for half of the world), so what books remind you of summer and are your quintessential summer reads?


Girl Out of WaterGirl Out of Water By Laura Silverman

Reason: Okay so I’m so happy to have this 2017 debut author on my list. I read this book and I absolutely loved it. It deals with the main character basically not being able to take part in the summer she has been super excited for. It was really fun and enjoyable. It truly is a great coming of age story that I really highly recommend. I hope to reread this soon.


Dangerous GirlsDangerous Girls by Abigail Haas

Reason: Okay so this isn’t a summer book it has to do with spring break but it gives me summer vibes. I mean just look at that cover doesn’t it scream summer. Plus when I read this it was summer time so that counts, right? I really enjoyed this book and it really kept me guessing until the end. If you haven’t read this you should check it out.


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

Reason: Okay so I’m really upset I waited so long to read this book. I really liked it a lot. It takes place in the summer. Macy spends her summer at a job where her coworkers don’t like her and she spend the rest of the day studying. She doesn’t have much of a life until she decides to work at a catering job. This was such a great story. I loved seeing the development of Macy. It really is such a great story that I have sat on for way too long.


25 Veronica Mars The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line

The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line By Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham

Reason: This is another book that takes place during spring break but it also gives me summer vibes at the same time. I mean just look at the title and the book cover alone. I am a huge Veronica Mars fan and I am so happy these books were made to keep the spirit of the show going strong. I really enjoyed it and I have the second one waiting for me to read. I’m just not ready for it to be over. If you’re a fan of Veronica Mars than I highly recommend you check this out!


Anything that was written by Morgan Matson

Reason: I am a huge fan of Morgan. I’ve only read two of her books but this month I plan on reading the other two I haven’t read yet plus rereading the other books. I love Morgan’s books so much. They give off the ultimate summer vibes. I mean you really can’t go wrong with these books. They’re so fun.

February Wrap-up

monthly-wrap-up

Hey guys so it’s that time of the month again where I do my monthly wrap-up. I decided I was going to do a theme for the month. The theme I picked was love. I picked books that had to do with love and books in the genre that I love which is mystery/thriller. I had two extra books I wanted to read but I got distracted by a new video game so I spent some days playing that. Continue reading “February Wrap-up”
