Top Ten Tuesday | Best Books of 2017 (so far)


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.

What are the best books that you have read so far?

  5. Saga is ridiculous. It is one of my favorite things (and I need to go to the comic book store and pick up the most recent issues. Thanks for reminding me). Great list. Happy reading!

    Night is such a powerful novel! I actually got to hear Elie Wiesel speak back in college. And I LOVE Saga. I can’t wait to read the latest one!
