Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books of 2017


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's topic is our favorite books of 2017 - back in June I made a list of my favorite books of the year so far, so today I want to list my favorite reads from the second half of the year!

  1. "Daughter of the Pirate King" has a really interesting synopsis, I don`t know why I haven`t picked it up yet.

  2. I still need to read Daughter of the Pirate King. Seeing it on your "best of" list definitely gives me added motivation to bump it up on my reading list. Great list!

  6. Wow, I've read none of these books! How to Disappear and Daughter of a Pirate King are both on my TBR list. Hopefully, I'll get to them by the end of the year.

  7. I'm glad to see "Into the Water" on your list. This one has been on my TBR for several months now already but I've seen quite a lot of people who were pretty disappointed by this book, especially in comparison to Paula Hawkins' first novel. So it's good to get a little encouragement from your list, hopefully I will pick it up soon! :)

    Here are my favorite books of 2017 so far

    1. I would say, go into it with as few preconceived notions as possible! I loved her first book, but this one is very different!

  8. I have a copy an audio book of Into the Water, I've tried a couple of times to listen to it. I want to pick up the physical book and read it, it is one of my anticipated read for the year. Daughter of a Pirate King is one that I think would be really good too. You have a great list there!

  10. The only one of these I've read is Rebecca, though not this year. Looking forward to The Confusion of Languages sometime in 2018... loved Fallon's previous book. Great list!

  16. I just discovered Louise Penny's Armand Gamache books recently, and the first book, Still Life, made my list of favorites. I'm planning to read the rest of the series ASAP. Here's my list from today.
