Top Ten Tuesday: The Best Books I’ve Read in 2017 (So Far)

Top Ten Tuesd

As part of The Broke and the Bookish’s “Top Ten Tuesday,” I decided to share my favourite books that I’ve read so far in 2017…

  1. My (Not So) Perfect Life, by Sophie Kinsella – I’ve read all of Sophie Kinsella’s books, and each one is a guaranteed riot. Her latest one was especially funny and poignant as it addresses the discrepancy between how peoples’ lives appear online and how they might look in real life.
  2. The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood – Okay, I know. I should have read this one ages ago, because it is brilliant. (And given the current freaky political situation in the States, it seems to be even more real…)
  3. My Lady Jane, by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand & Jodi Meadows – My inner history nerd (who died briefly whilst learning about the world wars) was revived when I read this book. It’s equal parts historical romance and humorous and an all around good time.
  4. The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss – I listened to this one on audio book and found myself engrossed in this meticulously created world.
  5. The Royal We, by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan – Who doesn’t want to read a story about meeting and falling in love with a hot prince? No, really. I mean, who doesn’t?
  6. Today Will Be Different, by Maria Semple – An offbeat, heartfelt story about a woman who is just trying to “get it right.”
  7. History is All You Left Me, by Adam Silvera – This one broke my heart, but in a good way. More on this later.
  8. The Couple Next Door, by Shari Lapena – It’s every parents’ worst nightmare, but every mystery lovers’ dream. This book kept me up at night.
  9. The Wangs vs. The World, by Jade Chang – Smart and funny, I loved this book for the characters, who were deeply flawed but extremely lovable.
  10. Foxlowe, by Eleanor Wasserberg – Cult stories fascinate me and this one was so creepy right up until the end that even now I still think about it and shudder (in a good way!)
