My Favorite Books Of 2017

The best books I read this year!

Its that time of the year again when we look back and decide which books we loved the most among all others. For this year, I picked my favorite book from each genre that I read. There are a total of 10 books on this list and they are roughly in order of least loved to most loved. I obviously recommend all of these books.                                                             

10. Career Rules: How to Choose Right and Get the Life You Want by Sonya Dutta Choudhury

I read about five non-fiction books in 2017 and this was my favorite book among them. This book offers a very detailed insight into many career paths and offers practical advice. It gives tips and hacks, included interviews with people in the various fields and is overall a very useful book

9. #Blur (GearShark #4) by Cambria Hebert

#Blur (GearShark, #4)

#Blur is the fourth book in the GearShark series and follows the story of Arrow and Hopper. I’ve mentioned this before as well that Cambria Hebert is my favorite romance authors and I absolutely love the Hashtag and GearShark series. If you’re looking for well-written, funny and captivating romance, I highly recommend these books.

8. Animal Farm by George Orwell

Animal Farm

I managed to read a few short classics this year and Animal Farm was my favorite. The simplicity of this book blew me away. I can understand why George Orwell is so highly praised. I’m definitely going to read more of his books this year.

7. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, #1)

I’m sure Lord of Shadows would have been on this list if I had read in 2017. But I didn’t. ‘

Lady Midnight is the first books in The Dark Artifices series by one my favorite YA fantasy authors. It was good to go back to the Shadow world. Emma and Julian were amazing protagonists and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

6. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Cobalt Blue

I read Cobalt Blue in one sitting and it was one of the most engaging books I’ve ever read. The story was very powerful and the writing was amazing. This book took me by surprise and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a translated Indian book.
