December 12, 2017 Top Ten Tuesday 29

**Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish.**

I have no idea how it is possible that 2017 is coming to an end already, but here we are! This year has been filled with amazing reads and I’m excited to share my favorites with you! Initially I thought it wouldn’t be too hard to create this list. I’ve noticed I’ve become a little pickier of a reader than I used to be. BUT, I ended up struggling to get this list cut down! I hate leaving out so many good ones but… To make it a little easier though, I decided to split my list into favorite YA and favorite Adult novels.

Top Ten Favorite Young Adult Novels



  • Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – Utterly adorable in every way! MY REVIEW!
  • Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson – Beautifully touching and left me an emotional mess! MY REVIEW!
  • Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer – If I had to pick a favorite, I’d have to say this is the one! MY REVIEW!
  • Bang by Barry Lyga – A story that will stay with me. MY REVIEW!
  • The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – Do I even need to say anything? Amazing and thought-provoking. MY REVIEW!
  • Roar by Cora Carmack – Left me enthralled! MY REVIEW!
  • Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices #2) by Cassandra Clare – Clare never lets me down.  MY REVIEW!

    Several of your books are on my TBR. While I didn’t read Simon, I didn’t read The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli and loved it. And I have Simon and plan to read it soon.

    I’m with you, it was hard to narrow down to 10 books. My 10th “book” was a series – I loved them all!

    Your books are amazing. I’m glad you loved so many of them. I really want to read A Game of Thrones someday, but I just hope I’ll be able to stomach all the gore. I read a couple of circus books this year and Caraval is the only one I’m missing to complete my TBR!!
    I’m in the middle of The Mortal Instruments but I CANNOT wait to get on with Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows!! Simon vs. is also on my list! We’ve got a couple of books in common!

      I didn’t find A Game of Thrones quite as gory as the show but we shall see how the series continues though. lol

      I’ve loved every Shadowhunters book. I just adore them so much. I hope you like them all!

    I see six books I read and loved on your YA list. I read Simon almost 3 years ago and it still warms my heart. I get happy tears in my eyes every time I see a commercial for the film. Second Chance Summer was so heartbreaking and beautiful. I am eagerly awaiting the next books for Warcross, Letters to the Lost, Caraval, and LoS. I am currently listening to Ghosted, and I love it so far.
