Top Five Books I Read in 2017

Instead of doing my usual yearly wrap up, I thought I would share with you the top five books that I read this year. How is 2017 almost over? I’ve still got one book to read before I’ve completed my Goodreads challenge but I’m sure I can get another book in the bag before the year is out.

Talking As Fast As I Can – Lauren Graham

I blooming loved this book so much I cannot explain. I loved the Gilmore Girls growing up and I still watch them from time to time now. Of course when I heard about her bringing out a book telling about her time recording the Gilmore Girls and the revival, I had to get it on Audiobook. Highly, highly recommend this book, especially as an audiobook!

Perfect – Cecelia Ahern

I was so excited when I heard that the second instalment in the Flawed Series was coming out. I jumped at the chance to get this book on Netgalley and I was so glad that I did. It’s such a great concept, and I think it’s so appropriate in the current political climate. Definitely recommend picking up the series!

A Court of Wings and Ruin – Sarah J Maas

Where do I even start with this series? GO AND READ IT FOR YOURSELF! I cannot rate this series highly enough and there is nothing that I can say that will make this series any more interesting to you than if you were to read the blurb! Go! Go! Enjoy!

Salt to the Sea -Ruta Sepetys

Ruta Sepetys is one of the best young adult authors I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Salt to the Sea is one of the most tragic and under-rated young adult historical fiction books I’ve read and I didn’t even realise that it was based on a true story. I spent so much time reading about the unknown (to me) events of WW2 after this book and I was shocked to discover how little I knew. This book was an eye opener and it is a book that will haunt me for a long time to come.

A History of Britain in 21 Women – Jenni Murray

I learned so much in this book that I couldn’t not include it. It taught me so much that I had absolutely no clue about and it taught me how bad-ass British women were/are. If you want to read about how awesome us women are as intellectuals and human beings, check this book out. You might discover a few things along the way that make you realise how ignorant to history you truly are, or then again, that might just be me!

What books have you loved this year? Let me know so I can branch out with my reading in 2018!

    Cool list! I love Gilmore Girls, and I’ve always wanted to read Talking As Fast As I Can, but somehow I just haven’t gotten around to it. (Hopefully that’ll change this year!) If you like WWII books, you should try the Front Lines series by Michael Grant. It’s a view of what could have happened if women and girls were allowed to fight in the war. I am dying to read Perfect- you were right, Flawed was AWESOME!
