Top 10 Books I Read In 2017

This year I wanted to do a fun recap of my favorite books that I read! I ended up reading 64 books this year, which is crazy to me! This year I didn’t fall into many reading slumps and was able to keep up reading throughout most months. Since I did share so many in my Recently Reading posts, I wanted to share my favorite 10 in this post so you can start out 2018 by reading some brilliant books!

Skipping a Beat by Sarah Pekkanen- see my thoughts in this post.

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen- see my thoughts in this post from May. This is one of my favorite Sarah Dessen books!

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer-
I actually had to read this one for a lit class last spring but I ended up loving it and finishing it way before we had to finish it for class! See my full thoughts in this post.

The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes-

I read this back in June and I am still thinking about it and recommending it. That is how you know it’s a good book! See more thoughts in this post 

Wonder by R.J. Palacio-

I know the movie for this just came out and you have probably already seen it and loved it, but I definitely recommend reading the book before watching the movie! This was a quick but powerful read, and you can see more in this post
