2017 RELEASES BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

Hey guys, today I am coming at you with a new recommendations post, focusing on 2017 book releases.

Upon looking through the list of books I had read this year I discovered that I hadn’t really read too many 2017 releases this year, however, there were 5 (what a convenient number) that I found I did really enjoy.

CARAVAL BY STEPHANIE GARBER

My Review

Because who doesn’t love circus books? I knew from the very beginning of the year when I read this, that Caraval was going to be one of my favourite books of the year. It was charismatic and the writing was amazing, the author described the surroundings in the novel through colours, which was like nothing I had rad before and it really made the novel for me That, and I had never read a book set in a circus before.

THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END BY ADAM SILVERA

My Review

This was definitely not my favourite read of the year, however, it was my first Adam Silvera novel and I do think about it quite often which, I think shows how much thought went into the novel on the author’s end.

This is definitely an interesting novel, it tackles a really complex topic and the main characters are both lgbt so what not to love? Overall, this book will make you think and the ending will crush you.

DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONES BY SEANAN MCGUIRE

My Review

This series is honestly one of my favourites but so far this instalment is my very favourite. Dracula meets Frankenstein and this book has the best gothic vibes and is perfect for any time of the year, but especially fitting for Halloween.

This one is really funny and super easy to read in all one go so I definitely recommend it. Also, the social commentary is fabulous.

THE SANDCASTLE EMPIRE BY KAYLA OLSON

My Review

This was one of the, if not the only Dystopian novel I read this year and if I’m honest I wasn’t eve going to pick it up. However, I had heard little to nothing about it and I got accepted for an e-arc so I figured why not just give it a shot. Luckily enough I ended up really enjoying it and now it’s on this list.

LOST BOY BY CHRISTINA HENRY 

My Review

I officially love Peter Pan thanks to this book.

I never once cared about Peter Pan until I read this book but now I am obsessed with Neverland and how Peter Pan came about. This will definitely be a re-read for me in the next year or so.

  1. Wonderful post! I’ve been meaning to get into Silvera’s books but still haven’t found the time – there always seems to be something else I decide to read first!

    1. I know how you feel, I only picked up his books because I got an e-arc of They Both Die At The End and because More Happy Than Not was at my local library. That being said, I really loved More Happy, much more than They Both.

    1. I know, it’s crazy to me that most people just read it…and it was just a book to them??? Whereas I feel like I’m just over here screaming about Peter Pan and analysing Neverland in my spare time… because I am just so fun?? I’m still so glad you enjoyed the book!

    1. Yeah, I found that my list of books I had read this year was pretty sparse with 2017 releases, so I’ve made it a low-key goal to read more 2018 releases next year. I feel the same, I feel like I am still catching up on all the books from a couple of years ago because I rarely read new-releases unless it’s a fave author or an arc.
