Top Ten Best Books So Far 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Half way through the year already! I’ll be checking in with my goals and challenges later in the week, but as today is top ten day, here’s 10 of the best so far. I ahven’t limited these to 2017 releases as I’ve been reading more backlist and my own books. I don’t seem to be dishing out 5 stars as much as usual, I must be getting picky in my old age!

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman
Sofia Khan is Not Obliged by Ayisha Malik

You Will Not Have My Hate by Antoine Leiris
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Fragile Lives by Stephen Westaby
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Saga Volume 7 by Brian K Vaughan + Fiona Staples

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
Children of the New World by Alexander Weinstein

    Hi, When Dimple Met Rishi is next on my list so I'm so happy that you enjoyed it.

    Quite a few of your other books are on my TBR pile so may have to prioritise them a bit more.

    Happy Reading

    I haven't read any of those! but they all look great. I'm a fan of crows and ravens, and corvids of all sorts, so Nevernight by Jay Kristoff looks especially interesting.

    1. Ellie

      So far it's not been that raveny but it really is excellent (and plenty of reviewers gave me the wrong impression of it).

  3. Destiny @ Howling Libraries

    Great list! A bunch of these are actually on my TBR. πŸ™‚ Here’s my T10T for this week!

  4. Olivia

    I can't wait to try Nevernight, it's been on my tbr list for a while. And I really enjoyed Saga, from what I've read so far!

  5. Barb

    I'm reading Saga Vol. 6 now. I love that edition of Nevernight. It's so awesome. Seems a lot of people love that series so I should check it out.

    1. Ellie

      Yes I think the UK won on the Nevernight cover front, I love it.

  6. Jess @ Jessticulates

    Great list! I've seen When Dimple Met Rishi on so many lists today that I bought myself a copy – only 99p on kindle so I can't complain! I read Sofia Khan is Not Obliged last year and really enjoyed it, it's so fun, and You Will Not Have My Hate sounds pretty amazing.

    1. Ellie

      Thanks for letting me know it's 99p, I will spread the word, what a bargain!

  7. Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra

    Several of these are on my TBR – Nevernight, An Ember in the Ashes, Strange the Dreamer, and When Dimple Met Rishi – so I'm excited to see they made your Best of list. Looks like you've had a great reading year so far πŸ™‚

    1. Ellie

      Oooh you've got some great reading ahead of you!

  8. Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense

    I have When Dimple Met Rishi on my shelf and still haven't read it! I must find the time this summer. It looks absolutely adorable.

  9. Cass

    Lots of great titles! I still need to read Radio Silence, Nevernight, Strange the Dreamer and When Dimple Met Rishi. Thanks for sharing!

    This looks like a great list. I really want to read When Dimple Met Rishi. I love the cover. Glad to hear you liked it!

  11. Nicky

    Aaah, I need to read a bunch of these! Glad to see they made it on your list.

    Nevernight is one I'd definitely like to read at some point, so glad you enjoyed it. I really want to read Strange the Dreamer too.

  13. Mallory @ The Local Muse

    I've been wanting to pick up Sophia Khan ever since I heard it compared to Bridget Jones' Diary. Glad to see you loved it!
    Thanks for stopping by The Local Muse

    1. Ellie

      Yes, it very similar in tone to Bridget Jones.

  14. Carmen

    When Dimple Met Rishi was on my list as well, such a cute YA romance. Hopefully, I`ll get a chance to read Nevernight and Strange The Dreamer this year. All the reviews are amazing, so I`m very excited to pick them up.

  15. Rissi

    SO glad to spy 'Dimple' on this list. I picked it up a while back and though I haven't read it, it too should have made my Top Ten Tuesday list this week. It sure looks darling. πŸ™‚

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Ellie.
