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.

Invictus

INVICTUS

★★★★☆

It took me from October 24 to December 4th to read this one but don’t take that as a bad thing. It has been a long while since I have wanted to savour a book and I honestly didn’t see it coming. This was the first Ryan Graudin book I’ve ever read and I am blown away so far, I loved all the characters and I enjoyed that this was a time travel book that actually included time travel and the dangers that come with it.

Scythe (Arc of a Scythe, #1)

SCYTHE

★★★★☆

Best.Ending.Ever.

This was seriously such a fantastic novel, it really made me think and I really appreciate it. Also, there is so much death and competition, how could I not love it?

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE

★★★★★

THIS BOOK IS AN ADVENTURE! I loved every second of this. As soon as I finished listening to the audiobook, I immediately wanted to start it again. Actually, I am really considering to re-read it sometime soon.

Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children, #2)

DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONES

★★★★★

My review

I wasn’t expecting this to be as funny as it was, nor was I expecting to finish this book in one day. But hey, this series is just that good!

This is a fantastic series and so far this is my favourite novel in the trilogy. That being said, book 3 comes out in a couple of days and I am so excited for it!

Lost Boy

LOST BOY

★★★★★

My review

I loved this book, it made me think and it managed to get me to love Peter Pan.

This is a fantastic novel, it is the book that really got me into retellings of classic stories and I love it.
