The best readings of 2017!

Hello people! How are you? And how are your readings going? I really cannot complain about my currently reading because I am loving them, yay!
And I cannot complain, too, because today I am here with the list of my best readings of this 2017! They are randomly placed on this list.

 

1)Nevernight and Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff. I read the first one at the beginning of the 2017 and the second one at the ending and I loved them!

2) The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. This was a re-reading, tbh, but the first time I read it I found it ok but nothing special. This second time around I completely loved it!!!!

3) Mistborn Trilogy by Brendon Sanderson. I re-read the firsts two books and I finally read the third one. I loved them! And I love Sanderson so much!!!

4) Fool’s Quest by Robin Hobb. This is the second book in her latest trilogy. I love her, and I love her characters. I grew up with Fitz and the Fool and I love them soooo much, even if my poor heart cannot stand it!

5) Thefts of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. This book includes the first two books of the Ryiria Revelations series, and I re-read the first and continue with the second one, finishing the volume, yay. I loved it! And I had a lot of fun reading this. I can’t wait to read the second book in this series!

6) Golden Son by Pierce Brown. The first book was one of my best reading last year and this second one didn’t disappoint my expectations!

7) Ilona Andrews. I know, I know… she’s not a book, she’s an author! But this year I read some of her books and I loved all of them so much!! The Innkeeper Chronicles Vol. 1 was a book with the first three installments in this series, and I loved all of them! And I’ve read also White Hot and Wildfire, that are the second and the third book in the Hidden Legacy seriesI really hope there would be another book in this series! And I’ve read also Magic Bindsthe 9th book in the Kate Daniels series, but this one was a little bit less than the previous books. (But I have to confess a thing to you… I love it nonetheless!).

8) The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner. This year I’ve read the 2nd, the 3rd, the 4th and the 5th book in this series and I loved them all so much! Gen is a wonderful character and the story is really entertaining!

9) Let’s pretend that’s never happened by Jenny Lawson. I preferred the second book to this one, tbh, but I liked it a lot and I hope she would write something else, sooner or later.

    Hobb is an amazing author, love her work! Locke Lamora is great too and I enjoyed the first Mistborn book but haven’t read anymore Sanderson as I’m not too keen on his writing style.

    Nevernight and Godsgrave are both great, really looking forward to the final book in the trilogy especially after that ending! 🙂

      I agree with you about the Hobb, she is a cruel one (because cruel she is!) but her works are amazing (even if I didn’t love her Ship of Magic. I think I would try the second book, but I am not so fond of this series).
      And Sanderson writing isn’t something special to me, too, but I love his worldbuilding and his characters so much that I really don’t mind much for the writing 🙂
      And I’m looking forward to the final Kristoff’s book, too, because I need to know what would happen next and how the story would end (but I have to confess that I am a little bit scared!).

        Scared indeed! Godsgrave was so different to Nevernight that you can’t help but wonder where he’ll take the story and what hell he’ll put her and the readers both through!😂 Hopefully he’ll lose the elaborate pages long sex scenes as they are the worst part of the books.

        That’s very true, she is cruel, Nighteyes!😞🐺😞

        I enjoyed The Liveship Traders, it definitely adds to the overall story and characters. I struggled with The Rain Wilds books though.

          Yes, he really keeps me wondering, because I can’t see where all this is going (and he doesn’t like happy ending, but I really like them… and I know that I would be disappointed or half disappointed in the end, but I keep on reading and hoping!! ;P)

          And I agree that The Liveship Traders adds to the story and the characters (in particular now that I’ve read the second book of her new trilogy) but I couldn’t click with the characters and I really really hate some of them. But maybe with the second book the things would go better… or at least, I hope it!

            Yeah, I can’t see either. Godsgrave was so different to Nevernight that anything could happen in the next book.

            I actually like happy endings too or at least endings with a bit of happiness in them to end the trilogy/series, put the characters through darkness and hell in the books, cool but at the end, a little light and hope is good.

    Oh, cool choices, Susy! I have almost all of them on my TBR, especially the fantasy ones, and I’ve seen Let’s Pretend around a lot lately. I need to check it out!
    I’ve never heard of Ilona Andrews but I think I’ll skip her books are they’re not really my thing 😛
    Thanks for all the recs 🙂 Hope you have a lovely year!
