BEST & WORST READS OF 2017 | Book Chat

I read some things last year.
Some were good, some not so much, and lots were only so-so. Collected here for your ease and edification (lulz) are the ones I recommend -- and the ones I really don't.
Here are my  Top 5 & Bottom 5 (ish) Reads of 2017!

I Stop Somewhere
Words in Deep Blue
A Court of Mist & Fury
Face Like Glass
The Gentleman's Guide to Vice & Virtue
forgot to mention: Saga, vol 7

The Bone Season
The Wrath & the Dawn
The Rose & the Dagger
*technically TWTD was read in late 2016, but I read them as a unit and think of them as 16/17 reads
Wolf vol 2: Apocalypse Soon
and lastly, the many, many books I drifted out on. I specifically mentioned The Glittering Court
and Girl of Fire and Thorns

The Jane Austen's Dragons series
Clean Room series
Yes Please (specifically on audio)
Spindle's End

YA Booktube Awards RETELLINGS section
BERSERKER (and others) reviewed
FACE LIKE GLASS (and others) reviewed
I STOP SOMEWHERE discussion (live soon!)

Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored video, though many of these books were sent to me for review consideration purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


  1. I love getting the Best of and the disappoints for the year. It puts it in perspective for sure. You remind me that I need to read the Court series. I have the first one. And Cath's book. Gah, I keep forgetting about it. :)
    Uh oh, I have Bone Season and the Renee Ahdieh books on my pile as well. Maybe I'll be alright since its so far from the hype.

  2. I read A Face Like Glass too last year and I agree, it was very bizarre. I was super impressed with the plotting and storytelling though -- some really interesting themes it explores.

    Also, sorry to hear The Bone Season didn't work for you :( I had a hard time getting into it at first (seriously, I must have picked it up, read the first few chapters, and put it aside like 3 times or something) but once I actually forced myself to push past the confusing start and get further in, I really ended up enjoying it. It's too bad you stuck it out to the bitter end and wasn't rewarded by it!

    I totally get the "drifting out of a book" thing, btw. It's been happening to me a lot lately, where I'll pick up something and read it for a while and then just kinda get bored and not want to pick it up again. Not sure why it's happening but I wish I was finishing more books!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
