Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Releases of 2017 Thus Far!

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly book blog meme hosted by the lovely girls over at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is the best books we've read in 2017 so far. I've decided to narrow this down to my favorite 2017 releases of the year, meaning only books that have been published this year. Some of these will probably pop up on some of my end-of-year surveys/lists, so I'll keep my descriptions brief. So, here are my six favorite 2017 releases so far!

The Empire's GhostLost Boy: The True Story of Captain HookMiranda and Caliban

The Empire's Ghost by Isabelle Steiger - Review
This new epic fantasy was so good and full of incredible dialogue that I loved. The world is fantastic and despite this book appearing to be a lot of setup for later books in the series, I still found it so engaging.

Lost Boy by Christina Henry - Review coming 7/3
This book, which retells the story of Captain Hook and how he came to be, may have broken my heart a little bit. Or a lot. This book was brutal and beautiful at the same time and I loved every minute of it.

Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey
Another beautifully written story. I felt the characters were written so well and the development of Caliban's character was heart-wrenching and I just loved him to pieces. 

The Dragon’s Legacy (The Dragon's Legacy, #1)A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic, #3)A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3)

The Dragon's Legacy by Deborah A. Wolf - Review
Another incredible new fantasy that introduced a complex and exciting new world. I really can't wait for more!

A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
This was easily one of the best trilogy/series-conclusions I've read. It was so beautiful, heartbreaking, and epic. If you haven't picked up this series yet, I highly recommend it!

This might be an unpopular pick, but I loved this final addition to the ACOTAR series. I thought it was witty, gripping, and completely brought me back to the world and characters that I so fell in love with in previous books. 

Read any of these ones? What are some of your favorite 2017 releases so far?

  4. A Conjuring of Light made my list this week as well. I haven't written my review yet because I just finished it, but OMG, I could not have asked for a more perfect end to a series.
