Let ’ s be real, 2017 was kind of a garbage fire year for our world, but at least we had some good books!
I had a pretty good reading year!
I ’ m very happy with the 130 books that I read, and I feel like with each year I get better and better at picking out books, and requesting ARCs, that I am please I will at least enjoy, therefore, my average rating tends to get higher and higher.
This ook taught me that girls can be anything they wish to be, no matter the expectations society, family, and anybody else in this world puts on them.
This nove taught the world that we want black stories, from black authors, with black casts, with lack people on the covers… no matter how many old, racist, white dudes continue to get published.
But this book taught me how much more work needs to be done, and how I need to do ore to boost marginalized voices, and how the world eeds to change and it can begin with me and our generation.# 3.) Tyrant 's Throne ( Greatcoats# 4) by Sebastien de Castell
This nove taught me that found families with unconditional love is the most powerful force in any world.
These books mean a lot to me, and I feel so very thankful, privileged, and blessed that I was reluctant to read them all this year.
