My Year in Books 2017


It’s 29th December, only three days left to new year. This year I did a few good things and not-so-good things, and there still is a lot of things I have to do. How was your 2017?

One disappointing thing is that I didn’t complete my want-to-read book list which I posted February. But I’ve read 12 books this year anyway. Let’s take a look.

The Only Child by Andrew Pyper
As I wrote before, this is my favorite author. I’ve been waiting the release of this book in anticipation. I enjoyed the story but the last few pages were a slight disappointment, because it ended exactly as I expected.

Say You’re Sorry by Melinda Leigh
This is my first book by this author. The characters were attractive (except for the culprit). I think I will read her other books next year.

Hate List by Jennifer Brown
Read while thinking about my school life and friendship.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
This was unexpectedly good read.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
I was surprised it was long and more serious story than I thought.

Sweets & A Stabbing by Harper Lin
I bought this book only because there is a cupcake on its cover. And it was $0. Nice read.

Ten Things We Did (and probably shouldn’t have) by Sarah Mlynowski
I like these kind of books. Stupid and lovable at the same time.

The Damned by Andrew Pyper
I was excited at the series of absurd paranormal occurrence. And I like this cover. Creepy, isn’t it?

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
I did not quite understand how rich these rich people were, and what they wanted to do.

Cappuccinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse by Harper Lin
Another cupcake-on-a-cover book. Looks delicious. As for the story, I didn’t like nosy neighbor.

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks
A series of shocking episodes to me, I regret a little reading this book.

総理 by Noriyuki Yamaguchi
A collection of interviews and episodes to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his officials. Interesting book.

That’s all, 12 books I’ve read this year. I hope to see good books next year, too
