Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks topic is the best books you’ve read so far in 2017. Now, currently I have read 41 books so far and I could not find 10 books that I deemed to be the “best”. Below is a mixture of 5 and 4 star ratings that I believe were amazing reads and definitely recommend.
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
Night by Elie Wiesel
All 3 of these are historical fiction/nonfiction. I love a good historical fiction/nonfiction. Especially set during WWII. I have no idea why. It was such a big thing that happened in the past and I am always amazed at the different countries the authors focus on. In class you only hear about the big players, but what about a small town in France, or Lithuania? Also Wiesel’s book was just hauntingly heartbreaking and is a necessary read for anyone.
Saga: Volumes 1-4 by Brian K Vaughan
Blue is the Warmest Color by Julie Maroh
I’ve become obsessed with graphic novels. This year I have finally started the Saga series. I have rated each of them 5 stars. They are just so good. Blue is the Warmest Color was not what I was expecting when I got into it. I just knew that it was one of the top recommended ones to read and that their was a movie based on it. The subject matter was real and tugged at the heart strings. I might have teared up a bit.
Watching Traffic by Jane Ozkowski
This was a book that was on my TBR for a while. I decided to finally give it a go. It’s just a very real book about what it’s like when high school is done and things begin to change real fast.
After the Quake by Haruki Murakami
I bought 1Q84 by him and have still yet to tackle that beast so I have been reading his collection of short stories. I really loved this one. Each one was centered around the Kobe earthquake. Great writing.
