Musing About Things: Top 10 books for 2017


Hi guys, welcome to Book Munchies’ Musing about Things: A Discussion (Post). Inspired by memes such as Books and a Beat‘s Musing Monday & Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s Caffeinated Confessions (etc.), this is a Book Munchies discussion post, where I’ll be rambling about (mostly) book-related things and hopefully you guys will join in on the fun too (:

Another year has gone and I’m not sure how to feel about it. 2017 was a good year for books and other things, but mostly it was a good bookish year. There were a few books that I wanted to read but I didn’t get to. Here’s my top 10 books for the year and in no particular order..

1. A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab – the ending for this series was perfect. It’s one of those series were I didn’t expect to really like, but on the contrary it was a surprising like.

2. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton – I wasn’t a big fan of the setting for this series for some reason, but the characters. I’m dying for to read the final book.

3. Once and For All by Sarah Dessen – the last couple of Sarah Dessen’s books have been a weirdly hit or miss novels but Once and For All renewed my love for Sarah Dessen’s novels.

4. The Stranger Game by Cylin Busby – this book would be the perfect read for Halloween because my god, all the chills and shivers I got.

5. My Not so Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella – This might be my second Kinsella novel and probably won’t be the last. I’m pretty sure I laughed the entire time reading this novel.

6. I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo – While I wasn’t a big fan of Maurene Goo’s debut Since You Asked, I love how I can relate to pretty much all her characters in her sophomore book.

7. Nyxia by Scott Reintgen – This one was picked up on a whim, but I ended up liking it a lot and now want to read the sequel so badly.

8. In Some Other Life by Jessica Brody – I know I read a lot of Jessica Brody’s works and this one is probably my favorite to date because it was hilarious. The sofa scene gets me every single time.

9. Before she Ignites by Jodi Meadows – A surprise that I ended up liking this one a lot more because I didn’t really like the Incarnate series all that much. Dragon stories aren’t usually my thing but for a fantasy book this has a lot of relevant controversial topics.

10. Heartless by Marissa Meyer – I love Heartless for the desserts, but yes don’t read this book on an empty stomach which I totally regret doing because I ended up wanting to eat a rose macaron after.

What are some of your top 10 books that you’ve read this year? Do we share the same books? Which books are you looking forward to reading the most next year?

  1. I still haven’t read Rebel of the Sands. It’s sitting on my bookcase since the day it arrived. One of my favorites was Blue Steal and it was a mesmerizing story! I’m looking forward to finishing Cathy Yardley’s books, One True Pairing and Game of Pairing.

  2. Oh wow, I thought I Believe in a Thing Called Love was Goo’s debut!

  3. I have heard that Sarah Dressen is a fun author to read. Glad you enjoyed all of these here.

  4. I still haven’t read V.E. Schwab but I want to! One of my fave books that I read last year was Wait for You by Jennifer L. Armentrout… this was the first book I read by her and it was amazing!
