Overall 2017 was a great year, I almost doubled what I read last year and my average rating was 3.9!! The only thing I really want to sum up from 2017 is the best 5 and worst 3.
Let’s start with the best, because I am a glass half full kind of girl….Sort of:
This books is one that I feel like everyone should read!! I read an excerpt in high school for my English class, I enjoyed it then and I am so glad I have now read the whole book. This book deals with some heavier subject matters. It makes you think about how you treat people, how important is your intelligence, and is ignorance bliss?
Yes, a middle grade book made it on to my top 5 list. For anyone that wants to learn more about transgender issues this is the book for you. It is a beautiful story, and it has really stuck with me. I also love the fact that these books are becoming more available especially for younger people.
This is one time I will say, the book is 100% worth all they hype. The way it is written it all feels very real, and makes you think about your privilege. It is a YA book but the story is great for all ages.
A second middle grade book! I read the illustrated edition which I would recommend, I think it adds to the story. This is a great book for kids and adults to read. Dealing with illness and death is hard at every age.
My first book I read for review and I loved it!! This is a faced paced book with great character development. If you’re looking for something short with some major punch, this one is for you.
Okay, and now the bad apples:
I don’t see the point, just drugs and alcohol. I guess wasn’t for me.
This one was mainly not what I was expecting. It wasn’t bad exactly, I just found it to be a big let down. It is true crime but felt like I was reading a novel. Wasn’t a fan of the writing style, it felt like he was romanticising the murders.
Instalove, and overall not very plausible.
I didn’t even have enough bad books to mention them in this post so the year must have been pretty good overall. Have you guys read any of these? Do you agree?
