We’re getting deeper into the new year by the day and I’d like to make sure I talk about my 2017 reads before I run out of time! As well as having disappointments of 2017 (which I’d like to talk about as well!), I had a lot of surprises and positives. So today I’m going to discuss them.
I read Seed early in the year and I really didn’t know what to expect! But I’m happy to say I was incredibly pleasantly surprised and I loved it.
I thought I would find this book so cheesy – so the shock came when I actually found it not so cliche at all! This book was so well written and I loved the charatcers so much.
I will never be a massive John Green fan, so this one surprised me as I didn’t think I would like a John Green book as much as I enjoyed this one.
I don’t think surprising reads have to be a complete change around – I just didn’t expect this one to become a favourite of mine. I didn’t expect so much, and I have to say I really underestimated it!
Caraval is very unlike anything I’d usually read, but I really love the world Stephanie Garber created. The enthralling writing gave me a pleasant shock!
Which books did you find surprising in 2017?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
