Fictional Friday: The Best & The Worst Books of 2017

For all my literature followers, here are two most important lists of the previous year – my favourite books I read in 2017 and the worst books I read. Not a very big variety of books to choose from, even though I read 70 books but most my choices were young adult and romance novels. This yea is going to be different though, but before we start with 2018, let’s wrap 2017.

I read 70 books this year, total of 28 444 pages, and I DNF’d only two books.

10. ELIZA & HER MONSTERS / In this list because it disappointed me

9. NOBODY IS EVER MISSING / Very confusing, and a little too overly stylish 

8. DEAR AARON / I didn’t like that half the book was letters, and that it too mushy

7. THE BAD BOY BARGAIN / Can’t remember anything, which is bad

6. RED ZONE (Daniels Brothers #2) / Too fast paced

5. THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY / I like Jenny Han, but I did not like this book

4. BEHIND CLOSED DOORS / I hate insta-love

3. NEANDERTHAL MARRIES HUMAN / Very unpleasant characters



10. THE HATING GAME / Slow paced romance, hell yeah

9. MY LADY JANE / A little off but funny as hell

8. MANAGED (VIP #2) / Surprisingly entertaining adult romance

7. DARK MATTER / Time travel and sci-fi done right

6. THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE / Wonderfully odd and funny

5. NEVERNIGHT / Slow at the start, epic by the end

4. A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN / Amazing with a few minor negative things

3. LORD OF SHADOWS / Brilliant, fell in love with all the characters

2. LADY MIDNIGHT / Amazing from start to finish! So well written

1. THE WISE MAN’S FEAR / How can I not, when I loved the first one just as much

Do you agree or disagree with my picks? Which ones, let me know in the comments!

      1. I’ve read My Lady Jane, A Court of Wings and Ruin, Lady Midnight and half of Lord of Shadows. Also, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is on my TBR 😀

  1. I haven’t read any of these, but I tend to lift a lot of the books I read from your recommendations so I’ll probably be getting to some on your best list this year.

  2. I found Eliza and Her Monsters to be okay, but that book was pretty hyped up. I need to motivate myself to finish The Wise Man’s Fear. I am afraid to see how long the third book is because the series cannot end in a trilogy. There’s too much things left to write about.

  3. […] terms of books read, I did get through four last month, and the wrap up will be up this Friday. The Best & The Worst Books of 2017  /  My Monthly TBR Challenge  /  My January TBR  /  70 Books I Read in […]
