2017 has been a really good reading year for me. I read so many fantastic books; narrowing it down to five was extremely difficult. As always, the Goodreads group can be found here. The group is hosted by the lovely #ThoughtsonTomes and #gingereadslainey. It is a lot of fun to come up with these lists every week, so come and join us! Without further ado, here is my list of the top five books of 2017.
1. The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima
I love this series so much. At the urging of my husband and Reagan of #peruseproject on booktube, I picked up The Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima. I was blown away by this fantasy world and this is one of my all time favorite series now. The Crimson Crown is the fourth and last book and it was my favorite. It was absolutely incredible. Please read this series! It isn’t nearly as popular as it deserves.
2. Winter by Marissa Meyer
Picking my favorite of The Lunar Chronicles was almost impossible. I loved every one of them, but the finale was the book that knocked my socks off the most. It was one of the most successful conclusions to a series I’ve ever read and I will most likely be rereading this series soon.
3. The House of Hades by Rick Riordan
The fourth installment of The Heroes of Olympus was definitely my favorite. I loved the intensity of this booking was thrilled with all of the amazing Percabeth moments we got. It gave a lot of depth to already incredible characters and I could not put it down.
4. The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
Kudos to Rick Riordan for claiming two spots on my list. The Last Olympian was my favorite of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series which is a high honor because I adore the entire thing. I read this book in one sitting and I cried when it was over. I love Percy and Annabeth and their world so much.
5. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
This. Book. I am still obsessed with Carry On and it’s been weeks since I read it. SnowBaz is life. This books is a must-read and I cannot contain my love for it. Instead of reading books I can count toward my Goodreads goal, I’ve been reading Simon Snow fanfiction. It’s amazing and I highly recommend it!
