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

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog theme started by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week is the best books you’ve read in 2017 so far. I was going to break it down into genre but I think I’ll stick

with top ten books of all the ones I’ve read so far. While writing this post, I’ve read 157 books so far this year, which means it’s going to be really hard to choose just ten books.

Alphabethon Wrap Up


This was a spur of the moment readathon where I failed to take into account my June TBR and so consequently put new books on my Alphabethon TBR, none of which I have read. However, I did read books which can count under the readathon challenge. I read some ARCs, some library books but only two had ‘b’ in the author’s name or title.

Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)

Ruin and Rising (Shadow and Bone, #3)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve wanted to finish the Grisha trilogy for a while and the library helped me with that. I really liked these two books and was glad I managed to read them this week (and not solely because they can count towards my TBR either). I can’t wait to get back to the Six of Crows series now I know I won’t be spoiled for the last book of the Grisha trilogy.

Readathon Wrap Ups

Now I was very short-sighted and signed up to do three readathons in the same week. I am terrible with dates and didn’t realise they all overlapped until I signed up for them. I have decided to do one wrap up for all three, partly because I really can’t be bothered to do three separate wrap ups when I could be reading and partly because there is some overlap. I read ten books last week, so not everything on my TBR but since my TBR was ridiculous, I’m okay with the books I did manage to read. Most of the links to the books link to my review of that book on Goodreads.

The three readathons I did last week were Read-O-Rama ReadathonLibrary-a-thon and Because Dragons Readathon.

Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog theme started by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is top ten series I’ve been meaning to start but haven’t and there were so many options for this. I have a long list of series that I’ve been meaning to start for a while and so I had to choose a small section of them to put on this list. One thing I can say is that Throne of Glass is not on the list because I finally started that series.
