And so we’ve made it! The past few days I’ve been counting down my favourite books of 2017 and now we’ve come to the last two books on my list. Number two and my all time favourite of the year! Without further ado, let’s get cracking!
Wires and Nerve, Vol 1 by Marissa Meyer
When rogue packs of wolf-hybrid soldiers threaten the tenuous peace alliance between Earth and Luna, Iko takes it upon herself to hunt down the soldiers’ leader. She is soon working with a handsome royal guard who forces her to question everything she knows about love, loyalty, and her own humanity. – from Goodreads.com
Last year, Winter and The Lunar Chronicles was my number one book of 2016, and this graphic novel was also at the top spot if it wasn’t for a certain book that was published in October (you’ll see who in a minute!). I absolutely love this series and to have a graphic novel sequel/companion that I LOVED too was just the icing on the cake.
Drum roll, please…
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
It all begins with a fugitive billionaire and the promise of a cash reward. Turtles All the Way Down is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. – from Goodreads.com
Surprise, surprise! John Green’s latest venture into the world of YA tops my book list of 2017. John Green is one of my favourite authors who I’ve been reading for years! It’s been such a long time since Green published a book, five years to be exact, and so when he announced a new book my excitement went through the roof! It’s safe to say I wasn’t disappointed. Green’s new book is own-voices as he struggles with OCD and translated his experiences into Turtles All the Way Down, showcasing what it’s like to live with OCD through Aza’s story. It was so inspirational, so moving and raw. A definite recommendation for those who like contemporary YA.
So that wraps up my top ten books of 2017! I hope you’ve enjoyed my countdown, and let me know in the comments if any of these books were on your top ten too!
