Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.
While 2017 has been pretty good to me in some ways, it’s been slightly disappointing as far as books go. It started off with a bang, and then everything got “meh”. Maybe I’ve been in a slump for most of the year, but things have not gone very well. lol. I’m hoping for a better reading year next year! I’ve written these out in order of when I read them.
1. Caraval by Stephanie Garber
I was truly and utterly captivated by and immersed in this story from the first page.
2. The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas
It was like reading an episode of Veronica Mars! Loved it!
3. Hunted by Meagan Spooner
GORGEOUS writing! This story is super unique, while still remaining true to the elements I’ve come to love from Beauty and the Beast.
4. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
I’ve never finished a book before and then immediately wanted to flip to page 1 and start over again.
5. Till Death by Jennifer Armentrout
My new favorite romantic suspense, and the book that I will use to judge all future romantic suspense novels I read.
6. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
There’s so much feeling and mystery surrounding the water horses and the people who ride them. The mystical aspects of the island and the races themselves made me forget I was even reading anything.
7. Hold Your Breath by Katie Ruggle
Another really great romantic suspense about a team on a search and rescue dive team in the middle of winter. SO good.
8. Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco
I loved everything about it… the heat between Audrey and Thomas, the setting, the mystery, and Kerri’s beautiful writing style.
9. Miracle On 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan
Such a sweet Christmas romance! He’s an icy author, and she’s a warm and peppy Christmas fanatic. Such a festive, New York City romance. I’m running a giveaway for a signed copy of this book right now!
10. Chasing Christmas Eve by Jill Shalvis
Another fun and festive Christmas romance! This time SHE’S the author (and a YA one–YES), and he’s a rich nerd. Love these two!
