Best Books of 2017 (so far)

So, school starts in like 3 weeks here, and I’m sad that summer is over because it means that I have to buckle down for junior year. But for the record, just because I’m gonna be hella busy doesn’t mean I’ll be inactive on my blog. I have every intention to keep writing and blogging. Just don’t expect a lot of lengthy reviews.

Here is a complete list with ratings and reviews of. I’m including all the books I’ve really liked this year so anything above 3 stars. I will, of course, be doing a complete list of all the books I’ve read this year (w/ ratings and reviews linked) and a favorite books 2017 edition but those will come in December/ early January.

    1. It is a very literal title. But it’s a really great book. Alarmingly relatable, despite my lack of having killed any boy bands. I’d highly recommend it. Goldy Moldavsky is fabulous. There are a lot of great pop culture references and jokes in it.
