My Favorite Books of 2017

Hey! Welcome to what will most likely be my last post of the year on ACB.

So, I’m going through my reader today, and lo and behold! Everyone and their dog is doing a “Favorites of 2017”. My first thought was “Silly peoples, it’s still the middle of the year!” My second thought was “Holly crap, it’s December?!” So now I am flailing and screaming while trying to remember all the awesome books I read this year. I might also add some books I bought recently at the bottom. K, lets do this!

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

(None of these are in order, I’m writing them as they come to me.)

LOVE this series! I’ve read the first and second and am working on the third. But the first is my favorite so far.

Physik by Angie Sage

This is another favorite series. It makes me mad that no ones heard of it .(

Divergent by Veronica Roth

I’m actually afraid to read the other two books. Four and Tris are together and I love their relationship. I don’t want it to die!

Russian Roulette by Anthony Horowitz

This is the book that made me fall in love with Yassen. I really wish there was more to his story. BUT! Never Say Die is finally here and all I need to do is save up.

Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz

This is probably my favorite book of 2017. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes Sherlock Holmes or Horowitz.

Curse of the Bane by Joseph Delaney

A few of you might have read the review I did on Revenge of the Witch. If you do, then you know I wasn’t all that impressed with Delaney. But this book was GREAT! It was much better than the first.

There you have it. Those are my favorite books of 2017. Now for the books I bought-

Arthur Conan Doyle: A Life in Letters by John Lellenberg, Daniel Stashower, & Charles Foley

Brotherband: The Outcasts by John Flanagan

Warriors: Thunder and Shadows and Fading Echoes by Erin Hunter

My Gal Sunday Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark

I. Q: Independence Hall by Roland Smith

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling

And thats all, for now at least.

Love ya!
