Top 5 Wednesday || Top Books of 2017

How is the year already almost over??? Aaaahhhhh!!!

Okay. Anyway.

Top Five Wednesday is a weekly meme created by GingerReadsLainey and hosted Sam from Thoughts On Tomes over on Goodreads. This week’s topic is top 5 books of 2017.

The year isn’t technically almost over just yet, but I’m going to go ahead and take part in this T5W topic anyway and just assume the books I’ll be wrapping up won’t make this list.

5 – The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

The Thief

Was not expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did, and I’m currently enjoying the second one in the series. Not as much as this one, but I think the emotional investment in the new characters will kick in soon enough, because I sure was invested by the end of this first book.

4 – Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Princess

This whole trilogy I don’t think I’ll ever get over. It’s just wonderful, and I love Jem enough for this whole damn series to just end me every time.

3 – Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Good book, good book! Loved the word-building so much.

2 – The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Still can’t believe it took me this long to read a beloved book set in a genre that I consider to be my favorite of all time: WWII Historical Fiction. I was not even remotely disappointed with what I was thrown into once I finally did give it a read.

1 – The Martian by Andy Weir

I’ll never stop talking about this one. I love, love, love this book. It’s so good. It’s so good.

  1. I’ve never read a Cassandra Clare book but I always see them around and I’ve heard they are wonderful. I plan on checking her out this upcoming year.

      1. I think the problem is a lot of people group her name with Stephanie Myers and after being traumatized by Twilight, I vowed not to go that reading route again. Lol but I should give her a chance.

      2. Oh yeah, that’s actually when I first started reading her myself, and there’s totally a bit of resemblance in her early works, that’s probably one of the reasons why I’m so blah on TMI. But, yeah! Who knows, maybe you’ll love it 😉
