Hello! and Welcome! to all the books I read in 2017. I read a total of 64 books (Yay me!) and here’s a list of links to all of them. They are somewhat organized by genre but I find that it is often hard to put books (like everything) into nice little boxes. The numbers correlate with the order in which I read them if you are curious. I wish I could attach a picture of all these books but I get most of my books from the library so I don’t actually have copies of any of these books (with a few exceptions being the books I read on my Kindle).

Gilded Cage by Vic James
This is a YA fantasy novel set in a dystopian future where there are a few people who are able to use magic. Those who are unable to use magic must spend ten years of their life as a slave. This could be in a factory or it could be in a manor where the “Equals” live their lives of luxury.

Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes
This is the fifth book in the Falling Kingdoms series and I’m finding it harder and harder to explain these books. In this book Amara tries to take over the world, Jonas has no idea what he’s going, Lucia tries to right her wrongs and Magnus and Cleo alternate between fighting and making out.

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
This is a teen fantasy story set in a world where humans and dragons coexist. We follow Seraphina as events unfold that attempt to destroy the peace between them.
The dragons in this book were really interesting in that they could take almost human form and thus remain among humans (although there are various reasons that make you realize that they are not human. To dragons emotions are unacceptable, especially love. Love makes you do irrational things and is far too human for dragons to feel. Continue reading “(42) Seraphina // Bookish Blurb”

The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
This is a YA fantasy story set in real life. The premise of the story is that Jack thinks he is a normal boy and then learns that there is a magical community all around him that wants to use him and/or kill him.
Although I did end up enjoying this story, I found it very hard to get into it. I just didn’t care about the characters or the situation but I’m glad I persisted. Continue reading “(36) The Warrior Heir // Bookish Blurb”
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
This is a YA coming of age story about twins Jude and Noah.
This story is about family, guilt, loss, being broken and trying to put your life back together and yet it manages to still have moments of humor and . I don’t really know how to explain this book very well without giving too much away. Continue reading “(27) I’ll Give You the Sun // Bookish Blurb”
