2017 Bookish Awards!πŸ†

Hello people! It’s already 2018 and I know that it is quite late to post my best or favorite reads of 2017 but better late than never. And to make this post more interesting I decided to do the concept of awards night like the Oscar and I choose some categories that I think would best fit a bookish awards.

Without further ado, here are the best books of 2017!

πŸ…BEST ACTRESS | Best Female Protagonist

Sienna from the Inferno by Dan Brown. I really love her wits and skills. Not only that her role in the book really gives a spice to the whole story. At some point, I feel like the story would not work as much as it did without Sienna’s character.

πŸ…BEST ACTOR | Best Male Protagonist

Danny from The Dark Intercept by Julia Keller. To be honest, if anyone has read the Inferno and this book, they would see that Danny and Sydney have a lot in common in the role that they play in their own story. And I just love characters who are hardheaded and witty at the same time.

πŸ…BEST DIRECTOR | Best Author of 2017

Laini Taylor of Lips Touch: Three Times. Well this one is a losing battle for her competitor. Nothing could be Laini Taylor when it comes to writing style. I forgot how much I love her until I read Lips Touch. I am truly amazed by how much she could do with just a single concept – a kiss. She created 3 different stories in just a few pages and yet each story is a masterpiece on its own.

πŸ…CHILDREN CHOICE AWARD | Best Middle Grade Book

The Changelings by Christina Soontornvat. This book is a reminder that I am still a kid at heart. It’s like reading a fairytale book before going to bed. I love the whole storyline. It is a twist in an old folklore about changelings and I think it’s for everyone to read.

πŸ…BEST SCREENPLAY | Best Storyline

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Hands down to Kaufman and Kristoff with this trilogy. I have to say that I have a very high expectation with this trilogy because of the first book. And this book exceeded my expectations. This book gives me too many emotions. I’m shocked, frustrated, thrilled, and exhausted at the same time. I did not see that plot twist coming.

πŸ…BEST SHORT FILM | Best Short Story

*I consider it a short story if it is less than 300 pages.

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. First of the synopsis of this book SUCKS. To be honest, the synopsis would give you a false expectation diving into this book but it

would turn out differently while you are reading the book. But still, even though I have some issues I still enjoyed this book and I hate that it is such a short book because I want more. Good thing there are more books in the same world that focuses on the story of other characters.

πŸ…BEST INDIE FILM | Best Self-published Book

Fragile by Jandra Sutton. This book is about a deft girl. That’s probably the only thing that I can say without spoiling or gushing anything that might spoil you. This book still hurts me whenever I think about it and it’s too painful and too beautiful at the same time. Just read it. PLEASE.

πŸ†BEST BOOK OF 2017

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. This is my first time reading this book. I’m one of the minority who does not grow up with Harry. But again, better late than never. I love this. The illustrated edition adds another magical layer to the book itself. J.K. Rowling is brilliant! I now understand why people love these books so much.

🏡HONORARY MENTION

Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan. Even though I did not like cliché romance and other contemporary tropes, I like this book. Well, I like every Sarah Morgan books no matter how cliché they are.❀️


Hey guys, yes I’m still alive. I’m hopefully back for good. Anyways, out of 27 books that I have read this year those are all of my favorite books of 2017. Hoping to read more books this year.

Till next time!
