A Few Great Books of 2017

As we're wrapping up 2017, I thought I'd offer a few of my favorite reads that came out this year. I haven't had as much free time recently as I'd like, so I feel lucky that some of the books I did manage to read were this good!


book cover of Amina's Voice
Amina's Voice by Hena Khan - Realistic fiction is not normally my thing, but this sweet MG novel charmed me while also teaching me a few things about the experiences of some Muslim Americans.


book cover of The Dark Prophecy
The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan - I continue to be impressed by (A) Rick Riordan in general, as an author and a person, and (B) his ability to pull off writing a series from the point of view of the god Apollo.


book cover of Dreadnought
Dreadnought by April Daniels - My favorite of the year! The prose, characters, and world are all excellent in this YA novel about a trans girl who becomes a superhero.


book cover of One Dark Throne
One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake - Sequel to the fascinating fantasy Three Dark Crowns, which is a hard act to follow. I couldn't put this one down, either. Kendare Blake can write, y'all.
