Let’s celebrate another year of reading!
Another long year has gone, but 2017 may be full of strife and hardship, at least we had a lot of great books to keep us sane through this hectic time. This year, more than ever, was where the importance of reading really shined.
This year of reading was a whole lot better than last year. I really branched out and tried out new authors while still revisiting old ones. So site back and get a pen ready. Because after I list my favorite books of 2017, you’ll be adding them to your own TBR list:
Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age Story by Amani Al-Khatahtbeh
Really opened my eyes to Islamic culture. It is lovely to read books from strong, courageous women.
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft
This is insightful and influential book was such a powerful essay to read, especially for this year.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I cannot stop raving about this book! I consider this to be my favorite YA book of all time!
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
This was the year I was introduce to Collins’s writing and I was not disappointed. I will definitely be reading more of his works in the coming new year.
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
Another author I was introduced to this year. I fell in love withe Christie’s writing style this year. I just can’t get enough of it! But tout of all the Christie novels I read this year, this one is my favorite. The thrills and the plot twist still gives me chills.
Fault Lines in the Constitution: The Framers, Their Fights, and the Flaws That Affect Us Today by Cynthia Levinson and Sanford Levinson
I learned so much about the US constitution from reading this book. I believe everyone in the country needs to read this book so they have a better understanding of how our country works.
The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
It was a historical novel, not only beautifully written, but that made you think. A book like that written by a contemporary novelist was a new one fore me.
Victoria by Daisy Goodwin
I am a big fan of the show! And this book does not disappoint. This compelling and well told storytelling will have you becoming a fans of the show yourself!
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Never has there been a novel that was a politically correct story and provided an emotional impact, at the same time.
Still Me by Jojo Moyes
A stunning way to end an epic adventure! Moyes is returning to her true form!
The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
Ms. Marvel, Vol. 7: Damage Per Second by G. Willow Wilson
I Am Alfonso Jones by Tom Medina
Baking With Kafka by Tom Gauld
