Favourite 10 books of 2017
The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas
Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy) by Taylor, Laini (2012) Paperback - Laini Taylor
Traitor to the Throne - Alwyn Hamilton
Horizons (Phobos #4) - Victor Dixen
The Final Empire. Mistborn Book One - Brandon Sanderson
A Court of Wings and Ruin - Sarah J. Maas
The Crown's Game - Evelyn Skye
Warcross - Marie Lu
The Upside of Unrequited - Becky Albertalli
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail - Cheryl Strayed

Out of the 82 books I read (hopefully 83 if I manage to finish Outlander before the end of the year), those were my favourites (well, I took all my 5 stars read of 2017 and chose 10 out of those, it's not really a scientific rating):

 

1. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: because this book was EVERYTHING. You need to read it if you haven't yet.

 

2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: and the whole trilogy. I totally enjoyed this unique universe with those amazing characters, a must read!

 

3. Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton: just WOW! This series is just so important for me, I love this world.

 

4. Phobos4 by Victor Dixen: this is the last book in my favourite series of 2016. This conclusion was epic.

 

5. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson: I just can't understand how I had never read Sanderson before this year. He is such an amazing author and I can't wait to discover more of his work.

 

6. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas: well, this series is one of my favourite of all time and this book did not disappoint.

 

7. The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye: I love this series full of Russian magic. I fell in love with the author's universe.

 

8. Warcross by Marie Lu: because, Marie Lu + video game = perfection.

 

9. The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli: a beautiful book with a strong message. This book made me open my eyes.

 

10. Wild by Cheryl Strayed: I think it is the first time ever a non-fiction book is on my top 10. But this was such a great experience, I had to include it.

 

What were some of your favourite books this year?

 

Thanks for reading,

Review: Warcross (Warcross #1) by Marie Lu
Warcross - Marie Lu

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

 

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

 

This is another book I bought because of all the hype surrounding it. And I’m happy to report the hype is well deserved.

I don’t think there is anything about this book that I did not like; I absolutely loved this book and everything about it.

The word building was phenomenal; the tech described in the book was just super realistic and easy to see in the mind’s eye. It was simple yet complex without being confusing.

I adored Emika, she was just so much fun to follow, she seemed real and down to earth with fairly mundane problems as she keeps getting trapped into that world. We get some romance and while it was easy to spot from the beginning I enjoyed it very much.

The plot is awesome and while you could see some things coming …. Or so I thought other things very much caught me by surprise.

I read this book pretty much in one sitting as it was hard to put down and kept you  begging for more. I cannot wait for the next   book to come out.

Overall, I really recommend this book as I, myself really loved it.

I rate it 5 ★
