Now for the last ten books of 2017 that I read. This post is part two of me going through all the books I read in 2017 by reviewing them in one sentence. Link to part one:
The Gunslinger by Stephen King (Dark Tower #1)
Short and weird. A lot happened and didn’t happen in a small book. A good introduction to a wacky series.
The Drawing of Three by Stephen King (Dark Tower #2)
Could you tell I was sucked in?
Beyond entertaining, I never knew what was going happen and seriously didn’t think there was even a spec of a silver lining. I’m intrigued to see what happens next.
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
I’m not going to spoil it, but a classic murder mystery that keeps you guessing the murderer over and over and over again.
Milk and Hony by Rupi Kaur
A stunning and emotional collection of poetry that was wholly relatable and will remain on my bedside table for the indefinite future.
Vengence in Death by J.D. Robb
Just a little obsessed with this series, I can’t seem to get enough of Eve Dallas and Rourke and of course seemingly unsolvable murders. This one delved into Rourke’s dark and mysterious past and reading him unravel his former sins was a serious page-turner.
Saga Volume 1
Picked this one up in NYC and I’m honestly surprised why I didn’t pick it up earlier, a unique story of war, romance and science fiction.
Stay with Me by Ayobami Adebayo
I’ve never read a book from the perspective of a woman in a polyamorous relationship that she didn’t choose and the family drama was non stop, I spent the entire time reading praying that Yeijide would find happiness or some positive reprieve in her life.
Mile 81 by Stephen King
A short story of sorts that didn’t compromise on good characters and of course being a King, had all the elements of shock horror and terror.
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Volume 1
Funny and quirky, she is so full of positivity that I finished the whole volume in one sitting, I truly believe there is no one she can’t beat!
Last but certainly not the least….
Lifeboat no.8 by Elizabeth Kaye
A short compilation of survivors’ recounts from the Titanic that brings to light the true thoughts and fears (or lack of) of the people onboard who lived and those who did not.
Entering into the new year I’m excited to read new stories and dive head first into more murder mysteries, science fiction adventures and maybe even some non-fiction!
