My Top Ten Books For 2017 and Two Recommendations for 2018.

The time has come again to pick my top books of the year. I have read 112 books this year and after much consideration I have managed to get it down to 10. And add an extra 2 that are not yet published. The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that a few of these books are from the same publisher. Apart from my top book of the year they are in no particular order.



Sealskin by Su Bristow – Blog Tour Review.


The Two O’Clock Boy by Mark Hill – Review.


Shelter by Sarah Franklin – Review.


Maria In The Moon by Louise Beech – Blog Tour Review.


The Unquiet Dead by Ausma Zehanat Khan – Review.


The Man Who Died by Antti Tuomainen – Blog Tour Review.


The Winter’s Child by Cassandra Parkin – Blog Tour Review.


Whiteout by Ragnar Jónasson – Blog Tour Review.


See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt – Blog Tour Review.

Before I reveal my top book of this year I would like to share with you two books that I have enjoyed that haven’t been published yet. These are:


The Coffin Path by Katherine Clements – Review.


This Is How It Ends by Eva Dolan – Review to follow when the book is published in January 2018.

My Favourite Book from 2017 was one that I couldn’t wait to read and I wasn’t disappointed. That book was:


Block 46 by Johana Gustawsson – Blog Tour Review.

I read Block 46 early in the year and I knew instantly that it would be hard to beat. It’s a book that I will think about in years to come.

It was harder than ever to pick my top reads and I am having to publish this post a few weeks early. It’s always a post that I enjoy putting together and I also enjoy reading what everybody else picks as well. Happy Reading.

  1. Well, well, well, Orenda Books is doing well – they sure know how to pick them, right? I agree with many of your choices too. Although my list will probably contain not just books published this year, but ones that I’ve actually got around to reading this year.


    1. They have done well, I think I’ve only ever featured one book before. I’ve also read a lot more of theirs compared to other publishers. 24/112. Next year I hope to read older books, I’ve failed miserably this year😁
