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.
