How weird is it that it’s the end of 2016 already? The last fourth months have seemed like 4 seconds just the thought of it nearly being 2017 is making me go insane. And yes, the title photo of this post is of me and Jennifer Niven. I mean… I MET JENNIFER NIVEN! AND I CRIED IN FRONT OF HER *facepalm*.
2016 was such a brilliant year for new book releases.
Some series got their finale (Crooked Kingdom and The Raven King), whereas some series were just beginning (Lady Midnight and Passenger). If your reading year was like mine and full of re-reads and reading for school/college/university, then you may want to take a look at this list: the top 5 books that you just HAVE to read in 2017. I can’t really talk about all of the books that are being released in 2017 because I haven’t read them all, but I can recommend a few!
Let’s get into it!

Now I know that I have about 10,000,000 books to read already but more books = more choice. Right? I got so many books for my 21st birthday and I haven’t even begun to start reading them yet, but for Christmas, I got a more eclectic range that I cannot wait to dive into (well… once I’ve read all of my other books which may take 10 years)
Another year means another ‘Star Wars’ film. Because that’s what the film industry has become right? Just an industry full of remakes, spin-offs and adaptations. For some people, hearing about another ‘Star Wars’ film is just ”whatever”; they don’t care. For me, it’s everything. ‘Phantom of the Menace’ was the first film that I ever saw in the cinema – I was three years old. I have always loved ‘Star Wars’ and I always will. …
Reading Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, you wouldn’t think that this was Albertalli’s debut novel. Normally a debut has a few problems here and there and the storyline isn’t quite up to the standard that is should be, but not with this book. No way. Albertalli has created something that is so powerful and moving that I started reading it again once I had finished it.
If you thought The Raven Boys was perfect, wait until you finish reading The Dream Thieves. Oh. My. Life. I am writing this review 30 seconds after finishing the book because I had to get all of my thoughts and feelings down. Maggie Stiefvater’s writing is magical and it makes me feel all mushy inside.
