Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Books of 2017 (So Far)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic is: Favourite Books of 2017 (So Far)

This is going to be a very difficult list for me because I’ve loved almost everything I’ve read this year so far. To make it easier I’m only including books that I’ve reviewed on my blog because I have more specific ratings on my blog than I do on Goodreads.

  1. Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
  2. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
  3. The Light Between Oceans by M L Stedman
  4. Carrie by Stephen King
  5. Persuader by Lee Child
  6. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  7. We by Yevgeny Zamyatin
  8. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
  9. The Martian by Andy Weir
  10. Good Me, Bad Me by Ali Land

What are your favourite books of 2017 so far?

  1. “And Then There Were None” almost made it onto my list as well, but “Murder on the Orient Express” was even better in my opinion 😀 I only just discovered Agatha Christie’s novels for myself and can’t wait to read them all! 😀

    “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” has been on my TBR for way too long. I only read the first book years ago but never made it past that one, even though I enjoyed it a lot!

    Here are my favorite books of 2017 so far

    1. I have read Murder on the Orient Express yet (I’m working through Christie’s novels in publication order) but I’m sure I’ll love it too!

      I’ve read the second Hitchhiker’s book (and I want to read the third before the end of 2017) and it was really good.


  2. I loved The Handmaid’s Tale and The Light Between Oceans. The cover you picked to include on the blog reminds me I need to watch the movie! Im planning to read And Then There Were None soon, but I did like Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express this year!

    1. I need to watch the film too! I also need to read Murder on the Orient Express but I’m planning on working through Christie’s novels in publication order so it might be a while before I reach that one.


  3. The Handmaid’s Tale was definitely one of my top books of 2017, too. I think Amazon just announced it was the most-read book of the year as well. I read the Light Between Oceans last year and loved it, very cool that it was Stedman’s first novel!

    1. Oh, wow! I didn’t know that. It makes sense though because it’s so relevant right now. Not just because of the TV show but due to the fact that it reflects so many aspects of western society today.

  4. Sheridan Le Fanu’s “In a Glass Darkly” is one of my choices for the Classics Club – I’m not a fan of vampires / gothic, so it will definitely be outside my comfort zone! I’m glad to know you liked Carmilla so much.

    1. Green Tea is apparently excellent (it’s in the ‘In a Glass Darkly’ collection) but I haven’t read that one yet. Carmilla is unlike any other vampire story I’ve read and I hope you enjoy it.


    1. It was hard to pick just 10 books for this list so I know what you mean about it being difficult to choose your favourites. It’s a great feeling when you’ve read so many great books that it’s hard to pick your favourites though 🙂
