My Favorite Books of 2017

Image
2017 has flown by, but not without leaving behind some really awesome books. This year as a whole has been a more challenging one for me, but I did read a few books that have stuck with me along the way. In case you want to check them out yourself, I will have each one linked to where you can buy them! Here is my list of books that have stayed with me and left an impression this year:

A List of Cages by Robin Roe
I loved this book so much! I borrowed this book from the library, and I so wish I could have kept it! I gave this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars.


The Unbound by Victoria Schwab
The first book I ever read by Victoria Schwab was The Archived, and I loved it! This was the equally fantastic sequel that I read this year. I gave this book a five out of five stars. The only thing I wish is that THE PUBLISHER WOULD LET HER WRITE THE THIRD BOOK!!


Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys Ruta Sepetys is one of my all time favorite authors, so all of her books are automatic buys for me. One thing I can…

Winter is upon us, so you know what that means! It's time to break out the blankets and hot tea, and snuggle up in bed reading a good book all day 😍

I am currently reading this book and just got to part 3, or page 185. I am really enjoying this one, and my goal is to finish it before the start of 2018!

Synopsis: The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.
What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godsla…

Fall Wrap Up

Hi guys! I'm so sorry that I'm the worst and this is so late! School and finals always consume me, and i can't ever seem to make time for things I actually want to do. I hope to get better about that in the new year, but for now here is my super late fall wrap up!

This season I:

Read 3 books Read a total of 1,150 pages Had one 5 star book  Overall I thought this was a pretty good season for reading considering I was in school the whole time. I had two books that I really enjoyed, so I would consider this season a success! 
The books I read this season were: 
1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer 

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her l…
