Top Ten Tuesdays: Best Books of 2017 So Far…

Top Ten Tuesdays

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. This week’s post is:

Best Books You’ve Read In 2017 So Far (break it down however you want — by genre, strictly 2017 releases, whatever!)

Already half the year is gone and out of my goal of reading 100 books for 2017, I have already read 34! I don’t think that is a bad start. Some of them, of course, have been huge letdowns, but others have managed to make my list of the top best books I have read so far:

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft

I was just so deeply moved by Wollstonecraft’s views on women’s rights. A great read for the current issues of this past year.

Muslim Girl: Coming of Age by Amani Al-Khatahtbeh

I didn’t know that much about the Muslim culture and how it is defined in the media until I read this book. Although, I wished it went into more detail, I strongly believe that this is book everyone should read.

 

 

This the year I discovered Agatha Chrisitie books and not one has disappointed me yet! I can’t wait to read more by her!

4:50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie

The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie 

The Moving Finger by Agatha Christie

 

7439970

 

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Everyone needs to read this book! Even if you are (or not) a fan of the TV show, the real medium is so much better. I fell in love with Atwood’s writing because of this book.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

The best YA book I have read in years! I loved every minute of it! It was so thought-provoking and insightful that I couldn’t put it down!

 

 

 

656626

 

Persuasion by Jane Austen

Reading it for the second time, I never truly appreciated of what a great book this is! You get the sense of Austen’s maturity as her writing continued to grow up to her death.

Goldie Vance: Volume 1 by Hope Larson and Brittney Williams

I was introduced to the this feisty heroine, Goldie Vance, and there is no chance I  am going to miss out on anymore of her amazing adventures!

 

 

 

 

6218001Ōoku: The Inner Chambers, Vol. 1 by Fumi Yoshinaga, Akemi Wegmüller (Translator)

New type of genre for me to read and it was a fun reading experience! Will definitely read more in the series!

 

 

Honorable mentions:

A Pair of Silk Stockings by Kate Chopin

Manga Classics: Sense and Sensibility by Stacy King, art by Po Se

The Boy is Back by Meg Cabot

Girl Rising: Changing the World One Girl At a Time by Tanya Lee Stone

  1. Great list! I’ve read And Then There Were None and Death in the Clouds by Agatha Christie so far and I’ve enjoyed both of them too. Agatha Christie is an excellent crime writer.

    I’ve got The Hate U Give on my TBR, so I’m glad you liked it.

    As for Jane Austen, if Persuasion is anything like Pride and Prejudice it will be good. Really enjoyed that one.

  2. I’ve heard a lot about The Hate U Give, but I still haven’t read it. I like how most of these reads are really thought-provoking. That’s one of my must-have attributes for stories.

  3. The Wollstonecraft looks fascinating! I’ve heard of her but never read any of her work. I’m so excited to see Agatha Christie on your list! I’m a huge fan of hers and have read them all (all 80+) multiple times. I do recommend you avoid Passenger to Frankfurt and Postern of Fate unless you absolutely have to read them. They were towards the end of her writing career and they’re pretty awful.

  4. Great list! I’m also a HUGE Jane Austen fan. I’ve been wanting to do re-reads of her books, but there are just so many books I want to read that I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’ve seen The Hate U Give on a lot of Top Ten Tuesday lists this week. And I’m definitely wanting to check out Muslim Girl.
