Top 5 Books of 2017

Owls. Saints. Miracles.

Following a family who has great power and been subject to great tragedy, it’s a story about healing, and letting go.┬áStiefvater’s classic magical realism style makes this book a thing of beauty.

Wonder Woman. Leigh Bardugo. Do you need more?

In the year of the #metoo movement and sexual assault scandals, Wonder Woman is the perfect figure keep in the front of our minds. She sees the good in people, even when it seems impossible. Bardugo captured her perfectly in this YA novel, with a diverse cast of characters and spot on themes.

SCIENCE. RELIGION. WEIRD.

If you love Night Vale this book is for you. It feels more like a novel than the first book, but it delves deep into the background of one of your favorite scientists. It handles the debate about science and religion in a way that only Night Vale can, and is sure to creep you out along the way.

Daemons. Origin Story. Dust.

His Dark Materials has been one of our favourite series since we first started reading. To get a companion series now of all the years is insane. Pullman captured his the exact tone of the first series, and adapts The Faerie Queene this time around. It is complex and beautiful and thought-provoking, just as we hoped it would be.

Virtual reality. Video games. Conspiracy.

After reading this book we came to the conclusion that we will support a Warcross video game as long as Marie Lu designs all the levels. Warcross is a bit like Ready Player One in base content, but goes a whole new direction with it. The plot is solid, and by the end of the book it is hard no to be extremely excited for the sequel.

Written by
I graduated with a BA in English and minors in Film, Women Studies, and Religion and Culture. I adore fantasy and sci-fi, especially when it comes to the YA section, but that doesn't mean I don't read anything else. When I'm not reading, I'm writing, biking, taking my dog for long walks or watching anime.

Have your say!
