What are you favorite books of the year? Have you read any of my favorites? Let me know in the comments below.  This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish


  1. The Hating Game looks fun, and I loved Big Little Lies when I read it. The Lake Effect was another one I wanted to read, especially since I live near Lake Michigan.

    1. The Lake Effect is AMAZING. I hope you get to read it, Greg. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Nice post ! My favorite book was The boy who granted dreams by Luca Di Fluvio !

    1. Nice! I will have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation and visiting, Alex.

  3. The Summer House made my list, too! This was a good year for "summer/beach" reads. I have a couple more of these on my TBR, as well.

    1. It was a VERY good year for beach reads, which made me very, very happy. I will have to check out your list, Angela. Thanks for visiting!

  4. WOW, you read many amazing books. I also couldn't contain myself and HAD to list my Top 17 of 2017!
    The Hate U Give is one of the books I should have read this year but still haven't. However, I haven't heard a single soul not LOVING it, and I have no doubt that I should read it and enjoy as well. I love the spotlight it's been getting, and all of the themes it touches upon interest me a lot. I shouldn't postpone it anymore! IT IS GETTING DONE!
