Top 10 Books Read in 2017

Top 10 Reads of 2017

2017 is over (finally), but besides the overall ill feeling for that year, there were books that really stood out and helped with the escapism.


Top 10 Reads of 2017

top 10 books 2017 covers

Although this is my top 10, the list does not represent any order of preference. Also, few of these were not released in 2017. I figured ranking these books would be more difficult because they each had their own special je ne sais quoi. Each title will link to my reviews for it. If you are interested in any of them, don’t hesitate to check them out.


  1. The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
  2. Sweet Sacrifice by L.D. Rose
  3. The Secret Life of Anna Blanc by Jennifer Kincheloe
  4. My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland (Audiobook)
  5. Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Audiobook)
  6. Blind Tribute by Mari Anne Christie
  7. Lady Mechanika Vol. 1 by Joe Benรญtez
  8. Dark Lord of the Night by S.K. Ryder
  9. Betrayal at Iga by Susan Spann
  10. Black Bullet by L.D. Rose

Well there you have it! I definitely look forward to some fantastic 2018 reads. Hope you also have a great reading year. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yay for White Trash Zombie being on your list! It didn’t quite make my Top 10, but I enjoyed it so much.

I hope you have an even better reading year in 2018!


Love this blog. I havenโ€™t read any of the books you featured. But have just gotten the one from Mari Christi and plan to read that. I also want to read Secret Life of Anna Blanc. Looks like fun! 2017 was a bumpy ride. Iโ€™m hoping 2018 is much better.

This looks like a very SFF filled list! I approve ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hopefully I’ll get around to trying White Trash Zombie eventually!


My! I should really start reading that series from Diana Rowland!
Happy New Year Aleen ๐Ÿ™‚

I loved The Girl in the Tower and My Life as as White Trash Zombie. I have that Dracula audiobook and have had it for years. I should try to give it a listen in 2018. Great list!

You have such a wonderful list here darling. I haven’t read any of them but Ihave heard great things about all of them. Glad to see how much you enjoyed it here.

Although I haven’t read any of your top 10- I always love seeing what people’s favorites from the year are because I get to see if any are on my TBR list and if not, add ones that look and sound especially good. The Girl in the Tower and the Secret Life of Anna Blanc both sound really good to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy New Year!
