Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books I Read in 2017 (so far!)

I'm sure this list will change as I read more novels this year, but here are my preliminary picks for best books of 2017. Something I've noticed is that my list is light on YA reads. Hmm. Not sure what that's about, but I haven't been enjoying YA reads as much this year. I am hoping the second half of 2017 will produce more compelling YA reads.


Adult:


1.  The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
2.  The Summer House by Hannah McKinnon
3.  The Book of Summer by Michelle Gable
4.  Slightly South of Simple by Kristy Woodson Harvey
5.  Purple Hearts by Tess Wakefield
6.  The Night the Lights Went Out by Karen White
7.  The Forever Summer by Jamie Brenner
8.  Kiss Carlo by Adriana Trigiani (Review to come!)


YA:


2.  Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
3.  Once and for All by Sarah Dessen (Review to come!)



Backlist:


1.  The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
2.  Mariana by Susanna Kearsley
3.  Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
4.  The Hating Game by Sally Thorne



Children's Books:


1.  Dad and the Dinosaur by Gennifer Choldenko
2.  Little Excavator by Anna Dewdney
3.  Mighty, Mighty Construction Site by Sherry Duskey Rinker
4.  Three Billy Goats Gruff by Jerry Pinkney
5.  Dragons Love Tacos 2: The Sequel by Adam Rubin
6.  The Seashore Book by Charlotte Zolotow (Republished this year!)

  3. I don't think my list had as many YA books as in the past either but I'm also not reading as much YA fiction.

    Great list! I have the Evelyn Hugo book on my list as well as Letters to the Lost, The Forever Summer, The Hating Game and Purple Hearts.

  4. I loved Big Little Lies, and The Hating Game is one that I heard was quite good. And I love that cover of The Book of Summer. Actually all those up there look so summery!

    Great list. :)

  7. Nice spread there! The only one of those shown that I've actually read is THE HATING GAME (which I adored!), but there have been quite a few WONDERUL books I've run across this year (thus far). Most recent...THE SCENT OF RAIN (YA)...and STORM OF ATTRACTION (Contemporary Romance). Here's to many more fab reads this year (and the next, and the next, and the... ^_^)!

  9. I still need to read P.S I Still Love You...I own it...I just need to read it still. Quickly, too, because the 3rd is in transit for me from the library. I still want to read The Seven Husbands, too. Lots of books to read and so far behind!!
