In 2017 I read 10,813 pages across 34 books, according to Goodreads. My goal this year was to read 25 books and I am more than happy that I passed this goal.
Today I want to show you my top-five favorite books of 2017. Definitely go check them out because they are pretty awesome books, of course 🌚

Seeds Planted in Concrete by Bianca Sparacino was my book into poetry. I only knew the poetry you read at school and I wasn’t really interested and actually didn’t know how popular poetry is even nowadays.
Couldn’t live without it now!

I’ve always loved Sherlock Holmes, so it’s actually no surprise I fell in love with Agatha Christie’s storys. Hercule Poirot and Arthur Hastings are amazing characters, so funny and genuine. Peril at End House was a perfect start into the Agatha Christie world! Can’t wait to read more!

I read EIGHT Colleen Hoover books this year. Yep. You could say I am obsessed. I think It Ends With Us was one of my favorites. I loved the characters and the storyline. The topic it was about is so important and I like how Colleen Hoover worked with it.
A must-read for me!

Elena Favilli & Francesca Cavallo
Perfect. That’s the only word I can describe this book with. Okay, maybe two: Perfect and Perfection. Really. It is the most gorgeous book I’ve ever seen. With it’s illustrations, the little texts and quotes of Rebel Girls. I seriously can’t wait to hold it in my hands again when I am back home.

(Also: My Italian Class and me gave this book as a present to our beloved Italian teacher as a thank-you. She loved it a lot!)

Jennifer L. Armentrout
My number one, of course. This book moved me so so much. I am SO in love. Mallory is like me. Exactly. I could relate to her and that made me so so happy. I’ve never experienced it with another book before.
Please, go read it. You will not regret it. I promise.
