My Favorite Books of the Year! [2017]

Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de SPRINGTIME (2)

Hi guys!, I hope you’re having a beautiful day. This December I’ve proposed myself to make several of this type of post, I think it’s fun and sums up well how my reading has been this year.
Today I bring you “My Favorite Books of the Year!”, I love to share with you some of the best books I’ve read during 2017. For me, it’s very difficult to add a book to my favorites list, I guess I’m demanding, so not all the books I mention are on that list. But WAIT !, I’m not cheating, they’re all books to which I’ve given 5 stars,  which I love and which I would read again … 

I don’t know how you manage your rating system, but not all of my 5 star readings fall on my favorites list, I’m quite selective with the books I put on this list, I can love the book and think it’s fantastic and put it a 5 stars, but I have to feel something really special about the book or don’t stop thinking about so that it go into my list of favorites. It’s also not easy for me to give 5 stars, I’m quite demanding in that sense, there are books that I’ve absolutely loved and still have 4.5 stars, but this is just my way of giving my punctuation and I wanted to share it with you, I don’t like it when I see that someone gives 5 stars to all the books, I feel that that person itsn’t subjective or is influenced by the thoughts of others, you know?. With that said, let’s continue …

I’ll show you the book along with its synopsis and its Goodreads link, in case you’re interested and want to check it out. I’ll not write about each one separately because I would probably be forever writing lol, besides I don’t want to sound repetitive and write about how much that I love the book over and over again, you already know that, otherwise, I wouln’t be adding the book to this list. In Summary: I recommend each of these books, YOU HAVE TO READ IT
Without further ado, I’m super excited to show you my choices this year, so let’s START! Continue reading
