It is the end of 2017. How fast did this year go by?! I can still remember new years eve 2016, and its almost new years eve 2017 already. My god.
I decided to do something like a favorites of… series. Which basically means that I do a list of my favorite books, movies, series, games, music, musicals and stuff like that. I don’t know how many times a year I want to do this. But I thought the end of 2017 would be a fun time to start! This will be some kind of a series. I want to take a subject, like books, and tell you my favorites of this year.
Favorite new release
Favorite older book
Favorite book of 2017
Favorite new release:
I haven’t read a lot of new releases. I recently transferred from Dutch to English
books, which was the best choice of 2017 for me, so I haven’t read many new books this year.
But I have an absolute favorite. It wasn’t easy to choose one. I have read many good and fantastic books this year. Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde had a big chance and A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas as well. But I choose The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. THUG was so incredibly well written and the story is so important! This book hasn’t won all the Goodreads prices for nothing!
Favorite older book:
I don’t mean a 1900’s book when I say ‘an older book’. No, I mean a book that was published before 2017. This will be a book that I’ve read for the first time in 2017.
This was also a really hard choice. I’ve read a lot more older books this year. The battle was between Stalking jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco and Divergent by Veronica Roth. This was a really hard choice, but I chose Stalking Jack the Ripper. I loved
Divergent, but it was another Dystopian, and I’m a bit done with dystopians. Stalking Jack the Ripper was new, refreshing and so thrilling! I don’t own the physical copy yet, but I’ll get it at the end of the year! That’ll also be my first time reading Hunting Price Dracula!
Favorite series is allowed to be new or old. That doesn’t matter. It just has to be my favorite series ever.
This one wasn’t hard at all. I love A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas to the moon and back. This series is so so so good. I can only say that you have to read it.
I’ve seen a lot of stunning covers. But the Firebird trilogy by Claudia Gray has absolutely amazing covers. I own one book of the series and that was an absolute cover buy. I haven’t read the books yet and I’m not really planning to do so anytime soon.
I really want to know which books are your favorites! Let me know!
Lots of love, Kelsey
