2017 is almost over,so  I have decided to share with you my 17 favorite books that I have read this year. If you want  to check my review for any specific title, then feel free to click on its book cover.

N.B: The books are listed in Alphabetical Order.


1- A Curse so Dark by Heather Davis

This was my very 1st Werewolf book to read. If I knew that from the start, I wouldn’t have read it. ( P.S: I consider blurbs to be spoilers, so I only read the 1st line.) However, I am glad that I got to go on a blind date with this book because I absolutely loved it.




2- Child of Nod by C.W Snyder

A zombie version of Alice in Wonderland, meets The Wizard of Oz, meets TimBurton.



3- City of  Brass by S. A. Chakraborty

The author managed to capture the fact that sometimes 2 opposing political parties, aren’t actually different sides of the same coin. Nope, they are simply the same side of 2 different coins.



4- Enigma by Tonya Kupper

Enigma got me gasping with every chapter I read! It was an action packed, romance flavored sequel that shattered away my reading slump.



5- Final Girls by Riley Sager

Final Girls is an interesting story that shuffles between showing Quincy’s present, where she has been able to get past her horrible past(which doesn’t last that long), and what actually happened on ThAt NIGHT!



6- Girl on the Verge by Pintip  Dunn

A diverse, own voices, twisted thriller that will keep on surprising you with every turn of events.




7- Goodbye days by Jeff Zantner

I really liked how Goodbye Days focused on the consequences of texting and driving. But since the driver died in the car accident, the entire blame was shifted towards the texter, Carver. Although the charges against him were a bit extreme, cause both of the boys were the ones to blame, it was done to shine a light on how it is somehow, a 2 way street dilemma.




8- Quiet Girl in a Noisy World: An Introvert’s Story by Debbie Tung

Quiet Girl in a Noisy World: An Introvert’s Story is a collection of short segments that follow a timeline that begins from being a college student, to falling in love, to getting married, to having a job. I feel like Debbie was able to capture snippets of her life as an introvert, and share it with us through this Graphic Novel.



9- Realm FM by Tyrolin Puxty

This books is probably the craziest thing that you’ll ever read. Yes, that is a compliment.



10- Roseblood by A.G. Howard

The writing style in this book will enchant you with its hypnotizing symphony.



11- Seize Today by Pintip Dunn

Seize Today is the perfect ending to the Forget Tomorrow series. Although it saddens me that the Trilogy is now over, I am perfectly content and happy with how everything ended.



12- The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy

When creativity meets historical fiction in a story filled with bizarre events, make sure that you don’t miss out on it and give the author your cents.



13-  The November Girl by Lydia Kang

The November Girl is a fresh take on Magical Realism. It is a breathtaking story that stars a girl who is half human/half witch, and a boy who is running away from his abusive Uncle.



14- The Vegetarian by Han Kang

This book was able to show, in a very vivid way, different ugly aspects of the human nature.



15- Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott

Violet Grenade is an enticing, dark read that will leave you hungry for more.

It is all about how everyone has a dark secret; a forbidden identity that is shunned in modern society.




16-  Wild Beauty by Anna Marie

I believe that Anna-Marie did a brilliant job with how she connected the beautiful, whimsical aspects of life with the brutally blunt reality of the world that we live in. 




17- Words on Bathroom Walls

The lie that Disney has been spreading for decades on how true love can conquer anything isn’t a part of the story. Adam doesn’t magically get cured when he falls in love.
