The 10 Books of 2017.



2017 was a great reading year for me. Previous years I have been determined to read around 50 books and never been successful. 2017 I decided to decrease the number and aim for a smaller number, 30, something that was more manageable. I managed to read all 30 books I wanted to read in order to reach the goal and I'm pretty damn chuffed with myself. There wasn't any specific genre I read, I'm usually quite open to reading any genre but 2017 was a great year and I read some fabulous books in the process. 

One of my 2018 Goals is to continue to read a lot, maybe more. I'd love it if I could read 40 books this year but who knows. I also use Goodreads quite regularly, so definitely join me on there for all things books if you're an avid reader. Without further ado here are the 10 Books of 2017. 





The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
Ctrl Alt Delete: How I Grew Up Online by Emma Gannon
The Break Down by B.A.Paris
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K.Rowling
We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie






All The Good Things by Clare Fisher
One Of Us Is Lying by Karen M.Mcmanus
Ice Cream for Breakfast by Laura Jane Williams
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

These 10 books were definitely what I most enjoyed reading in 2017, however there was a lot more than this within the 30 books that I read. I am already so stocked to get stuck into some more books in 2018. 

What books did you read in 2017 that was your favourite?

    1. Oh Yes I've got this series on my bookshelf but haven't reached for it yet. I'm determined to read all of the books on my bookshelf this year, one way or another. I have so many unread things! I love Jodi Picoult, why isn't there more hours in the day to enjoy so many more books?! xx

  7. The Couple Next Door and The Breakdown were so good! Highly recommend B A Paris' other novel, Behind Closed Doors. She also has a new book out in March, I think. I think my favourite book of 2017 was They All Fall Down by Tammy Cohen, it's the book that stuck with me and left a mark! x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x
