Posted on by

Hosted by: Two Chicks On Books



I’m kicking off the week with a giveaway and also kicking off  with the best books we’ve read in 2017. These are books that don’t have to have been released in 2017, only read in 2017.
I did do a lot of rereading this year, but I also picked up a bunch of new releases.



Below are my picks for Best Books and all where released in 2017.

White Hot & Wildfire by Ilona Andrews
How to Save an Undead Life by Hailey Edwards
Wild & Sweet by Rhenna Morgan
Spellbinder by Thea Harrison
Archangel’s Viper by Nalini Singh
Silver Silence by Nalini Singh
The Red Lily by Juliette Cross
Desert Roots by Anna Lowe
Turned by a Tiger by Felicity Heaton


What where your best read books in 2017?


Winners choice of one of my picks from The Top 10 Best Read Books in 2017. You can choose eBook or Paperback. The giveaway is international, as long as The Book Depository ships there free of charge (find that out here!) And, if you are a US winner, I will most likely ship from Amazon – because it will be there for you sooner! If you prefer, an eCopy I will send a Kindle or Nook edition. (Please note: You may only chose ONE of these options!)

I think my favorite this year was the entire Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer. If I have to pick one out of the series, my favorite would be Winter.

This is a great list. I love paranormal romance but I didn’t get a chance to read as many in 2017. I’m changing that for 2018 and need to start Nalini Singh’s books. Some of my favorites for 2017 were The Hate u Give, Geekerella, Warcross and Ready Player One.

December 28, 2017 4:12 pm

I’m reading now Burn For Me by Iliona Andrews 😀
My favorite in 2017 are:
Compromised in Paradise by Samanthe Beck
Feels Like the First Time by Marina Adair
Dr.Charlotte Stone Series by Karen Robard (this is amazing series,mix of paranormal,romance,suspense!) 🙂

Happy Holidays 🙂

December 27, 2017 8:08 am

Great List ! Nalini Singh’s Silver Silence and Archangel’s Viper would make my list

December 27, 2017 8:05 am

I really enjoyed Love Letters of Abelard and Lily. It was a unique read about disorders and love. I also really loved Paradise Girl. It kept me reading at a frantic pace to see what would happen.

I loved most of these too (at least the ones I’ve read). I still need to grab the new Thea Harrison. It seems when I don’t get audios from publishers, it takes me longer to get to them.

December 26, 2017 10:58 pm

Some of my favorite reads of 2017 are Feversong by Karen Moning, Eleventh Grave in Moonlight and The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones, Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs, Silver Silence and Archangel’s Viper by Nalini Singh, White Hot and Wildfire by Ilona Andrews, and Spellbinder by Thea Harrison.

Nalini Singh’s Silver Silence and Archangel’s Viper would make my list. I anticipate loving the Ilona Andrews’ series, but I’ve only read book one there. I would add Darynda Jones’ 12th Grave and Abbi Waxman’s Garden of Small Beginnings

I like your list also! There are some there I will have to try. I love Thea Harrison. I thought Moonshadow was better than Spellbinder. I’ve been trying to get to Nalini Singh for awhile. Anne

Great list! Of course Andrews made mine was well. I need to get back to Heaton’s series. I’m a few behind.

Ilona Andrews duo is my top pick of this year! I only just discovered their books and fell in love. Thea Harrison is next on my list to read. The Moonshadow series sounds really good.

I’ve heard great things about Ilona Andrews’ books and Nalini Singh’s as well, but I’ve not read anything by then! I’ve started to read books by J.R. Ward and her book Devil’s Cut was one of my favorite books this year. Elizabeth Hoyt and Tessa Bailey’s books were amazing this year. 2017 was a great year in publishing and reading!

Great list! Happy holidays. =)
